I will be attending a wedding event in weeks to come. I am close to the groom and he does not want me to wear the same color shirt as him which is white. So, I have opted to buy a cream-colored tie and am planning to pair it with a purple shirt as I have a purple-patterned handkerchief but am not sure what shade of purple to get or can I simply just wear a different color with the cream-colored tie? If all this is too much, I do however have a black tie but a red, black or blue shirt are off-limits as they are taken up by my other friends. So, help me out here... Thanks!!!
