    It's your day, you do you. Wear a caftan and top hat if you want.

    Suitsupply might have something in that color, or indochino. I think it would be tough to find a brick and mortar with this for an in person though.

    Check out Indochino - they normally have a few different green options when fall season comes out.

    Gotta be honest, I own a green wool suit that's more on the olive side. There are so many shades of green that I don't think you can totally dismiss it. For business, no but for pleasure, a night on the town or Christmas(had to go there), I think you could find a shade to live with.

    Once you pick up your suit, please post some images/shots. Cheers.

    I personally like the dark green suit look, but there are not many options out there. It's honestly a little less played out version of the midnight blue wedding tux craze over the past few years.

    FWIW, I was going to go with the dark green suit/tux, but ultimately went with a black custom. Just more useful and suitable for a wedding.

Your family and friends are going to be there, as well as your spouse's family and friends. Think about the impression you're going to leave on your guests, some of whom you don't really know. If you feel, deep down, that a green suit is the way you want to go, then do it, but maybe try to find a way to get just what you want. It may be worth it go to custom-made if you can find a way to do it that's within your budget. I bought a suit and shoes (total almost $800, back in 1998) because I wanted to look right.
    I appreciate the advice. always good to get that perspective. I think i threw people off with the first pick, but also have realize over the last couple days that I am looking for a VERY dark green. in that it would be tough to tell its green in certain lighting. My goal is not to pop at the wedding but maybe spark a "hey is that green?"

    I think this look https://stitchandtie.com/green-notch-lapel-suit is pretty fresh and different.
    That's a gorgeous colour and would look fantastic on a car; actually, I think Toyota just came out with a limited edition GT86 in that colour.

    The problem is that it's quite vibrant, despite the dark shade. Green will already stand out, and that particular blue-based tone will do so even more. It's a statement piece so you have to decide if you want to draw attention every time you wear it. In a creative industry where nobody would blink at white sneakers and a suit you could get away with it. Anyplace expecting more formality or less individual expression than that, and you're a sore thumb.

    Be careful about renting, especially if you don't fit really well into standard sizes/cuts. Fit is more important than colour, and I assume you can't really adjust a rental.

    That said, green can be great. Banana Republic had a swell green linen-cotton suit in 2017, in that price bracket -- GQ has an article on it. And here's someone who wore green to a wedding: https://www.articlesofstyle.com/articles/post/77584 .

    Just make sure you're being married for more than your greens!

    I think you can do green if you want to. I would recommend trying to be a little more classy, and less flashy.
    My second or third suit was like those (esp the one of the guy with the dogs) - a Brooks Bros summer suit. Actually got married (at the Municipal Building in Lower Manhattan) in that suit.

    I'm curious why you are so focused on a green suit? Green is, in my experience, definitely not a colour common to the business world. Of the items you have listed, you'll likely wear the item once and then it will spend the rest of its days in the back of your clsoet.

    If you're set on green, then my advice is rent. If you want a suit that you'll wear again after the wedding, I'd be looking for another colour.
