Tie looks purple here. The waistcoat or whatever looks a little less purple but defo not full on blue. Do you have another screen/laptop/phone to look at them on? Could be your monitor is a little off.

Even if it turns out the colour isn't spot-on, shoot raw and you'll be able to tweak certain colours after. As others have mentioned, exposure for her not him, and be mindful of your metering mode if you're going to use auto-modes (saw you used P mode for the second shot above) - e.g. something in the background of your shot could throw your exposure off if you use multi-segment metering.

Oh, and white dresses - you may need to bump exposure a bit because it'll throw metering off too.

Good luck

+ 1 from me also, based on what I see on my monitor. How did the event go? Well, I hope. The skin tones in the above look good to me, a nice color. But I'm not a pro and I can't discern small differences that well. I liked the nice green backgrounds, but that is just a personal preference I have. I hope you had a fun time.
