Don't wear Black, it'll make you look unhappy for the happy couple. Don't wear White, that's what the bride is supposed to wear. Don't wear something that will make you stand out more than the bride, because the Bride is supposed to be the focus of the wedding. So...you know bright colors or something. Neutral is good. Cream works. Blues or greens. Browns of course work also. The best is to just wear something nuetral and nice that won't stick out too much!

Oh totally. Your husband doesn't even have to wear a tux to be honest. I mean he can just do the nice dress pants and dress shirt. Doesn't have to go full out with tie and jacket. So, yeah, it's ok to wear a light colored shirt. He doesn't have to stick to the black and white! And you're very welcome.
