After much contemplation and lots of suggestions on Sewer's Guild, my finally decision on the wedding suit is: (drum roll please)
I will be making the dress version with the suit. Now I just need to find the perfect fabric. In the mean time, I'll be sewing up a muslin to get the fit just perfect.
All is coming together. My fiancee has a contract on his house, so looks like the wedding will be in November. I can't wait. Being 50 is fabulous!!!!
