Somehow the blue dendrobiums are feeling a little too edgy for your dress.  Maybe it’s that they’re not as soft against the white, and stand out a lot.  Is your heart really set on the orchids?  Could you go the blue hydrangea route?

I agree with pp, they seem too edgy for the style of your dress. You could use something different all together or you could just use a softer colored orchid in your bouquet and keep the blue everywhere else. Keeping the same price range of flower but a different color shouldn’t throw your florist for such a loop when it comes to your contract.

I think you can still use the orchids (the centerpieces would be gorgeous!) but if you think it wouldn’t match your dress you could go with a different blue flower in your bouquet.  That color blue was our wedding color too and we used delphinium for the bouquets and actually green orchids for centerpieces similar to yours.  So the flowers don’t have to match throughout the wedding.

ooh new thought:  nix the orchids in your bouquet, but a single blue orchid for your FI and his groomsmen, and then blue orchids in your centerpieces.  That will be lovely!

Thanks 🙂

There’s light green hydrangea, green hypericum berries, ivory roses and freesia in addition to the blue delphinium.
