Forgot moh bouquet/general question

FH makes beautiful bouquets so I took him to Hobby Lobby and he put together a lovely bouquet of lilies for me. Lilies are no where else in the wedding decor at all but I wanted a bouquet of them because they are my favorite flower.

I forgot to have him make a bouquet for my MOH which isn't a big deal but I would like your thoughts.

My question is: should she have just a single Lily with a ribbon wrapped around it? Would that look okay? These aren't great looking lilies but I haven't been able to find particularly nice looking fake ones. I'm pleased with my bouquet but it only looked good with a certain arrangement. FH had to play with it a lot to turn it into something lovely.
I don't want her to have the same size bouquet as me or at least not the same exact bouquet.
So if one Lily would look bad then should she have a bouquet made of the wedding flowers instead? Would it be odd that only I have lilies?

I know some of you will suggest I talk to a florist which would normally be a good response but please know that I will not consider a florist at all. Live flowers are extremely harmful to my grandmother so I will not be having them.

Thanks! (Also, let me know if this didn't make sense)

    I would have her bouquet be the wedding flowers. It’s okay that you have a special bouquet with special flowers

    Great! It was a lot easier for FH to make a pretty bouquet out of wedding flowers than it was for the lilies lol. But then I asked him to do just lilies instead. Thank you!

    I agree and think it's fine if your flowers are different!

    You are the bride, you can carry a watermelon if you wanted to! (It may raise some eyebrows but hey, whatever) The bridal party doesn't have to match you at all.
