I think the shells would be really random, honestly.

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,

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!

@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!
