I will be attending a wedding where the male related parties have to wear Aqua Green/Aquamarine colored ties. Honestly, the last thing I want to wear is a solid pastel colored tie with matching pocket square. But thankfully, the choices of patterns on the tie and of pocket square color is open. Could anyone point me to a nice looking aqua green tie?

The color choices on the suits and shirts are open, any suggestions on those to match the tie as well?

The color in question.

Can you wear it around your head (sort of like the head band in the Karate Kid) with the ends dangling?

At the after party no doubt. Not in front of the altar.

I think I have a necktie in that color blue left over from a custom order I did for a wedding party. If you're interested let me know and I can take some pics. Its actually the same pattern as a tie I currently offer called blue silver but instead of the powder blue for the dominant color its Tiffany Blue/Aqua blue.

Get the best white shirt you can get and it will really sell the aqua tie. The last thing(s) you want to do is either have your shirt competing with the tie or having this match thing going where it looks like you are either Regis Philbin (remember the Who wants to be a Millionaire monotone thing?) or trying too hard and come off as a Garanimal (matching kids stuff).

That aqua is so bold, IMHO its got to stand front and center and let everything else just sit back.

As for the suit, a dark blue with very muted pinstripe would work well. Or you can go a grey and black houndstooth or nailhead.

I own a hugo boss tie (that is slightly skinny...but not overly so like other ties) that is just a slight shade darker than that tie. I bought it a couple months ago, but I swear I've seen it at their stores still.
