At some point, you'll have to compromise with your wife (and she might win). But, as others have said, solid navy, mid-grey, and charcoal are the most versatile (you can wear them, really, anywhere) and pair best with most skin tones. Also, consider keeping your shirt light. Either a white or perhaps a light (sky) blue shirt. Most people look most classy with that combo.she just thinks that I look better in a black suit and feels it will go better with maroon, purple, and rose gold colors that she likes me to wear. she also doesn't want me to blend into the navy decorations in our vow renewal ceremony. I dont personally wear navy colors other than jeans as far as my wardrobe goes so it's not a normal color for me.
I've been looking at midnight/dark navy and I think it would look fine she's just a visual person. it doesn't help that she wanted me in black on black on black
Perhaps order one or two suits from Spier and SuitSupply in navy and mid-grey, try them on and let her see how it looks in real life. (If I remember correctly, SuitSupply will allow any suit to be returned for free; Spier will allow the first one to be returned for free, without a return shipping cost.)
