As Donoreo says, using the multiple exposures technique is probably the best bet. I'd recommend you do this in Camera Raw, to get the exposure for the dress, suit and any other elements that need to be adjusted to get the correct exposure.
Open then all as individual files in Photoshop. Then use CTRL + A to select the whole image of each file, then CTRL + C to copy it, then move to the first file and press CTRL+ V to paste it into it as a separate layer. Then use layer masks to blend the exposures together.
You'll probably have more success doing this image as a black and white, as you'll most likely get a severe amount of noise produced, trying to shove the exposure values way above what they were originally shot at.
You could also try using the shadow/highlights feature in adjustments, to lighten the shadows, which would in turn increase the exposure on the black suit.
As Geoff rightly says, wedding photography can and does present a lot of issues to overcome, which is why the pro's charge big money for doing it and have top notch kit.
