Believe it or not this happened to me! It was not until I was carrying around a sample of material, trying to match it up that I realised most types of blue flowers are actually a shade of lilac or purple!

But don't worry if the chosen theme color for your wedding is blue - you too will have fabulous flowers!


Types of blue flowers

  • You will find stunning flowers in certain shades of blue; Try cornflowers, hyacinths or hydrangea bridal bouquets.

  • If you are looking for a darker blue flower, ask your florist about dyed flowers such as roses for a striking effect.

    If you choose to go for silk flowers instead of fresh, you will find a good choice of shades of blue. Silk flowers can be easily got to match any wedding color combination. They are a good choice if you are looking for cheap wedding flowers too as prices are often much more reasonable than fresh flowers.

    Blue flower arrangement

    Another option and the one I chose was to stay away from blue in my flowers altogether. Instead I chose ivory roses. You could substitute white, cream or champagne colored blooms depending on the shade of your dress. I used foliage and freesia buds to give a subtle touch of green and lift my bouquet to ensure it did not blend into my dress.

    If you are going for a contemporary theme here you have even more options with tropical blue flowers or by adding a zesty lime colour to really give the wow factor!

    Lights at your wedding reception are another great way to add sparkle!
