I think as long as you tie things together anad have a running theme throughout just about anything you choose will be fine.  I too have sage green for my primary color (I am going the hydrangea route too, both green and lavendar) but I am using lavendar as an accent color.  My groom is wearing a summer weight wool suit in a mocha-ish brown with an ivory shirt and a beautiful Perry Ellis tie that has shades of green (matches girls dress perfectly!)…the boys (they truly are our boys…it’s a second wedding for each) are wearing the same color pants as groom with ivory shirts that have some brown stiching on them…hard to explain but they are very nice..no tie (our girls are wearing sage green halter tea length dresses..my dress is ivory/champagne…so basically my colors are sage green, browns, ivory/champagne with lavendar as an accent color.  We are getting married outside in the summer at a winery so I wanted lighter shades of winery colors (lavendar, not burgandy, lighter brown, not dark brown, etc).  Personally, I think if you are using sage for your primary color, any shade of any color that is a natural color (such as green) will look nice.

I am totally in love with that inspiration board from snippet and ink.  It made me want to change from a fall wedding to a spring one!  But this is about you, not me….I think the idea of the Groomsmen in sage sweater vests and the BMs in grey would definitely look great, particularly with some green hydrangeas.  One idea if you want to try to coordinate your attendents more would be to have they guys wear grey tuxes that match the gals dresses.  But that might be too matchy, and what I love about the inital board is that there are a ton of colors that coordinate instead of match.  And it all comes together.  By the way, I can totally see your first inspiration–that beautiful bouquet–going with the Snippet and Ink Board.  You should definitely bring in some of the soft orange through floral or other accent elements.  Good luck!

I just have to say I love the sweater vests…don’t change them!  I actually think the original green dresses next to the groomsmen really wouldn’t look bad. I don’t think they have to match exactly and it’s nice the girl’s dresses are a little richer.   But the snippet/ink route wouldn’t look bad either.
