I think it will clash.  Buttons just seem so cutesy, kiddy, and eclectic, and the venue you chose, as well as your husband’s clothes, are very formal, put together, modern, and neat.  It will look like a hodge podge of items and not be very streamlined.  But go for it if you like it!

IT sounds like a more appropriate them for a shower. It makes me think baby shower actually.

I love it and it’s cute, but a little too cute, if you know what I mean.

I think you need to stick with the theme of the venue.

The button theme would make a great and very cute wedding, as would the formal modern museum, but your instinct is correct that they really don’t go together. Sorry! My opinion is that the venue, first and foremost, should dictate the theme; otherwise you’re going to be paddling upstream the entire way through your planning. You want the look and feel of your venue to amplify the vibe you’re going for, not conflict with it.

I just saw an episode of a cake show in which the bride used buttons that her grandmother had been collecting on her cake. The baker actually made replicas of the buttons in chocolate.  I think you could use buttons to some degree but what you have picked seems too cute for the venue you have described. I would stay away from the cute baby buttons and look for some antique buttons. Go with navy blue and gold as your colors and then you can incorporate beautiful gold buttons.

I think if you do it right, it can totally be done.  Here are a few pictures of button wedding inspiration but with a formal touch.
