    I don’t care for the suit, but etiquette-wise, I don’t think its a problem.

    Once the suit jackets come off, just about every dude there will be wearing a white shirt.

    I would maybe wear a darker shirt to avoid being totally washed out if he removes his jacket (navy, perhaps?) but I think dude’s OK with wearing white – as long as it’s not a white dress (kidding!) and as long as he isn’t a natural attention-seeker (i.e. that guy who’s tearing up the dance floor all night and winds up in every single photo – had me a couple of them haha)

    I have a beige suit that I basically bought for summer weddings.  It’s fine.  It’s not so much “don’t wear white” as “don’t try to look like a bride.”  So, unless it’s a gay wedding, go for it.
