Also, you really need to see what it will look like on a suit. Even if you just pin it onto your FI's suit hanging on a hanger and then take a pic for us
But take a break and go back to it later.
I'll show you if I find anything like what I'm suggesting

A simple starfish boutonniere (it's hot-glued to a brooch pin):
A starfish with a bit of pearl spray (could also be done with wire and crystals, for bling!)
Flower bigger with a small shell/starfish on the green bit - I know you can get those same ones really tiny - finger starfish:

I havent glued anything together yet bc I want to spray paint the starfish white. I'm not sure if I like the blingy part, I may pick something different to stick in there. Then I have to figure out how to wrap the bottom, although at Michaels I saw that green tape that florist use so I may have to pick some up and experiment.

I think the flower and stem are beautiful but in order to make the bout not so big, you will need to make something smaller.
Great effort - I am not even going to TRY to do a bout.
