Have you thought about ties that have the robin’s egg blue as an accent?

Check out etsy.com.  You might have more modern options there.  Also check out stores like TJ Maxx or Marshalls.  The ones by me have tons of nice blue ties.

Can you find ribbon the same colour?  You could make the boutonnieres out of matching ribbon and just find a coordinating tie colour.

I like some of the other poster’s ideas for other ways to incorporate the robin’s egg blue into the guys outfits, but I also found a few potential ties if you stil wanted to go that route.  Obviously you may have to order ones you like to truely compare the colors, but these look like they could be close enough to tie everything together!

http://www.buyyourties.com/WSCBLUE11-Aqua-Tiffany-Blue-Wedding-Solid-Aqua-Tiffany-Blue-p-9808.html – Technically a solid color but the striping gives it a patterned effect

http://www.zazzle.com/schumin_web_blue_square_necktie-151724481275494145 – Blue square pattern

http://www.zazzle.com/powder_blue_diamonds_within_diamonds_tie-151295962613692272 – Blue diamond pattern

http://www.elegantascot.com/foleascrtiet4.html – The site calls it Tiffany blue but it doesn’t look Tiffany blue to me – looks more like your Bridesmaid or Best Man dress color.

http://www.zazzle.com/floral_twirls_tba_winner_tie-151416244656482679 – This one may be a bit dark of a shade of blue, but I thought the pattern was fun and it may still coordinate without matching perfectly

Hope this helps!

Do you hate Vera Bradley?  Most people either love it or hate it.  LOL.  But when I saw the dress you posted, I immediately thought of VB.  Are your colors blue and black?  Or blue and something else?  She has a lot of patterns with robin’s egg in them:

 

I especially love the ‘Cambridge’ pattern all the way on the left.
