Don’t wear a red tie, looks like you guys are trying too hard if you match your date. For a wedding, I’d opt for a more conservative tie, maybe something dark like navy.

Subdued darkish tie with red stripes or dots. That way you match but it’s subtle ;)

Yeah, I would do a subtle tie with some color and a pattern. The rest of your outfit sounds pretty conservative, so you can have some fun there.

No tie, white pocket square with red edging or just white

Can you go no tie? If not I’d suggest a plain subdued tie - let the date stand out - red tie on you and you’ll be borderline taking away too much attention from the newly weds anyways looking that loud.

I'm trying to buy a new carry-on size suitcase but am having trouble finding one that fits my requirements. Does anybody know a four wheel spinner bag that's:

2: has a lid that opens and one large compartment (soft or hardside but I don't like the two half clamshell hardsides)
3: looks decent (doesn't have to be fancy/designer, just something I'm not embarrassed to take to a client office)
4: under ~$300
