My Maid of honor will be wearing Clover (a shade of green)
and my bride's made will be wearing truffle (close to cocoa or chocolate).
Need suggestions on the color suit for my groom and groom's men.

Dear Ashron,

(The "regulars" on this site already know what I will say.)

BUST OUT OF THE TWO-COLOR BOX.

For some reason every bride-to-be gets mesmerized into thinking she is limited to two colors, one dominant and one accent. You will still be legally married if you surround yourself with more than just two colors.

Think, instead, of a color palette. Go to a paint store and get a bunch of color chips. Cut them apart, then mix and match until you find a palette that pleases you.

When I think of clover green and dark brown, I think "forest". What other colors are in the forest? Other shades of green, many shades of brown, oranges, rusts, reds and the occasional bright white or pink.

Next out-of-the-box suggestion: Why put people in identical clothes? Why not have bridesmaids in various shades of fall, forest-y colors? Why not have groomsmen in similar colored ties and vests?

Brown would be doable, but hard to match and I doubt the guys are going to buy a brown suit...

It might work to do black suits with green and brown vests or ties to match bridesmaids?

This page has an interesting mix of black, brown, and green; second picture down
