What a couple should wear at a 5:30 p.m. southern church wedding

My date has a black dress (with some accessories…minor), and I have a beige suit. Would we be dressed appropriately for for a 5:30 p.m. southern Church wedding in July? What color shirt should I wear (blue? white?)? Brown shoes okay?

Thanks so much.

Dear Southern Wedding,

Your attire sounds appropriate as long as the lady’s dress is not revealing. Probably your blue shirt would be best. Brown shoes work with this suit.
