Brides who choose blue wedding bouquets have, not surprisingly, a great affinity for flowers. After all, no matter what shade of blue a bride chooses, this hue will jump out against the pale white or ivory of a wedding gown. Depending on the flowers and shades your florist uses, blue can communicate a variety of moods: Crisp and proper navy, shocking electric blue, or ethereal cloud blue. Many flowers don’t sport the exact blue we seek in nature, but today’s realistic floral tints mean no flower is out of reach for those who desire blue blooms.
When choosing your color palette for your wedding flowers, make sure you and your florist are on the same page about the shade of blue you desire. One person’s interpretation of “robin’s egg” blue might appear more like a washed out baby blue to another. It’s helpful to bring any fabric swatches from bridesmaid’s apparel you want to match, as blue hues can have green, gray, or red undertones that clash with other shades. If the natural blue blooming flowers that match your wedding colors aren’t in season, it may be best to go with tinted blue flowers.
Figure out what your budget is, what kind of flowers you want, and how many flowers you’ll need; then do some research. If your local grocery store is stocked with awesome quality blooms for a great price, then go that route. And if an online wholesaler is your best bet, click away! Just figure out what’s best for you and what you feel most comfortable with.
