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: link )
I'm opting to wear a charcoal suit or medium gray suit
My questions are:
1) What color tie should I wear
2) Can I/Should I wear a vest, and if so what color for that?
I have a fair complexion and brown hair.

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.
