This is my bouquet.
My bridesmaids will have plain white hydrangea bouquets, like this.
Groomsmen will have white hydrangea boutonnieres like this.
I was going to have FI in colors to match my bouquet. But he wont wear a butterfly and he wont wear feathers (theres tons of feather bouts in the right colors.) So our options are to either get a bout with flowers that look different from everyone else or a white hydrangea to match the groomsmen.
He likes this one, which I think is cute, but isnt the same kind of flowers. Would that be weird? Would people even notice or care?
And he likes this one. Its the same flower as the groomsment and bridesmaid, but has shells. Nothing in our wedding has to do with shells, but he just likes them and has decided that this is his favorite. Again, is that just ridiculous? I dont really mind, but I dont want our wedding pictures to look silly because theres random shells on his tux. lol.

i like the first one. no to the shells if they have nothing to do w/your wedding

I think the shells would be really random, honestly.

@allyfally: I think the shells would be totally out there and weird lol

I like the 1st one. Doesn’t look odd at all.

I would suggest blue hydrangea…similar in colour to yours but like the GMs.

Maybe do both and have him wear the shells at the reception if it’s that important to him?

I am in agreement with many of the other Bees.
The Sea Shells just do not go / match anything. Period.
My first thought when looking at the pics was similiar to suggestion made by @Luayne: … Hydrangea (real) come in shades of White, Blue, Pink & Purple.
GOOGLE IMAGES – Hydrangeas = https://www.google.ca/search?q=hydrangea&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=tWpHUs7NNoSgyAHopoHIAw&sqi=2&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1366&bih=610&dpr=1#q=hydrangea&tbm=isch&imgdii=_
If you are having real ones (sorry cannot tell from the pic) then you can go with a Blue Bout for him… exactly like the ones for the Ushers / Groomsmen just in Blue.
Or if you are using artificial flowers, you can have it dyed, dipped or sprayed Blue.
Blue will also go amazingly well with your Bouquet where that is the dominent colour… and looks GORGEOUS by the way.
Hope this helps,

I found a seller on etsy that has a gorgeous blue and white hydrangea bouquet, but no boutonniere. I’m gonna see if she can make a boutonniere with the same flowers. Heres hoping!

No one is much going to care about the bouts. If he loves the one with the shells, that’s the one he should wear. No one but a Bed will even notice!

@allyfally: I like the idea of maybe doing the blue and purple hydrangea bout so they are similar to the groomsman and then it matches your colors in your bouquet as well!
Have you thought about making him one? Prob wouldn’t be hard to make!
Edit….I went to look on ETSY and found this shop…..she has this purple hydrangea bout that looks like the colors in your bouquet. Maybe she could make you one in the style you like!

@weddingbound: I actually looked up someone that had a beautiful blue and white hydrangea bouquet and asked if she’d be able to make a bout with the same colors, and she said she would. Should have it in a couple of weeks!

@allyfally: Oh awesome! I think that would be a perfect combo and tie everything all together. I love that you are doing something different with your flowers and I’m sure your photog will be able to get some cool pics with your bouquet!
