    I have been invited to my first commitment ceremony.  It's a 1:00 PM luncheon held at a prestigious restaurant in Atlanta, GA.  I don't want to over dress by wearing a suit and tie, if it's appropriate (or acceptable) to wear a dress coat with an open dress shirt or a polo style shirt.  If a description of me helps your suggestion, I have black hair, tanned, 6'5" tall and weigh 215 pounds.  Please help.

    You might ask the people who invited you how formal their wedding is going to be. However, if you're in any doubt, go with the suit and tie; you'll never offend anyone by being too elegant at their wedding. If they say it's casual, I firmly believe you should still wear a dress shirt with your jacket, not a polo shirt.
