What do you guys usually wear to a wake? Would a suit be too formal for the event? If you would wear a suit.....navy or charcoal? Thanks;

No, it's not too formal, it shows respect for the occasion. I think black would be the most appropriate suit, but absent that, navy or charcoal are fine. Obviously you don't want to go crazy with a tie or shirt. Plain white shirt, dark, preferably solid, tie. Your dress should reflect the somber mood.

Yah, I was thinking solid navy suit, off white shirt, navy tie and black captoes. Only reason im hesitant is because I feel very few people besides immediate family will be wearing suits, so I dont want to come off as a show off or anything like that.

If the event is directly after the funeral then that is fine.
