What color tie should I wear with a purple shirt and charcoal suit?
I'm going to be an usher in my friend's wedding. I've already been told that I'm to wear a purple shirt (per the bride), which I have (very similar to this:

A mismatched vest with a suit that's not a three piece suit would make it less formal.
That said a purple shirt is also less formal then weddings often are, but the unmatched best would go lower. A deeper purple or charcoal or black tie would probably look 'best'. There is actually a category of tie called a 'wedding tie'. Generally these are silver with a small pattern. I'd ideally, in your situation, go with a small pattern tie in black silver. Dark relative to the shirt but with silver to celebrate. link

This is going to sound REALLY weird, but pair that purple shirt with a burnt orange tie (if you could find one with a charcoal grey pattern on it even better) and I bet it looks hot
i'd say a black or grey skinny tie, although without seeing the suit and shirt together it's hard to tell, have you thought about no tie, and doing an open shirt thing?

What I wear with that is a black tie with silver/grey diagonal stripes and it works really well! Also get a silver pocket handkerchief. If the shirt has no pattern, it's usually good that the tie has one and it also goes the other way around..
A skinny black tie
Skip the vest Get nice Thomas Pink socks
1. A red or black tie will also be good.
2. Yes, a black one will do.
