Blue Floral Inspiration

Blue is one of the most popular colors in wedding design.  I’m hoping today’s post will inspire you if you are considering using blue in your event.

Blue Floral Inspiration

Light blue is the easiest blue hue to translate into flowers.

Spring Bouquet

This spring bouquet featured just a subtle hint of blue with delphinium.

This table arrangement also uses delphinium but the blue is more prominent when paired with white.

The bridal bouquet from the same wedding gets another hit of blue with a hydrangea.

Brighter blue hydrangeas paired with other boldly colored flowers give a completely different feel.

Bridal Bouquet

The bridal bouquet from the same wedding features the striking blue contrasted by the hot red, orange, and yellow tones.

Bridesmaid Bouquet

Bridesmaids carried a slightly different bouquet that contrasted from their blue dresses.  Here a touch of blue is seen in the thistle.

Thistle is one of my favorite textural elements.

Thistle can be a small accent but they can also be the star, like in these cuff bracelets.

It can also pull out other blue tones, like in this arrangement.  The thistle highlights the blue-green tone of the eucalyptus.

Blue-green tones can also be highlighted with succulents, like in this wreath.

Blue-Green Floral Inspiration

Many love the light and medium blue tones but navy, in particular is very hot right now. It is a trending color for bridesmaid dresses and menswear but is harder to translate into florals. But that is okay! Your flowers don’t have to match your dresses and suits, just coordinate.

Consider using navy ribbon for wearable florals such as flower crowns, belts, or bracelets. Bouquets and boutonnieres can be wrapped in navy ribbon. Ribbon can be used in aisle decor or navy table linens can be incorporated at the reception in either tablecloths, napkins, runners, or overlays.
