I think the irises will look really nice against your dress!

if you want a different blue flower, what about delphinium?

I think the irises would be pretty. It stinks, but in general, there are not many blue flowers that exist. Like with Dahlia’s, there is no such thing as a blue Dahlia. But they have some that are a certain shade of purple that it is close to blue. I love anemones, too but am getting married in July. If I was getting married in May, I would do pink Peonies. But i know you said you’re not a huge fan of pink! If you like the Irises, I would stick with those. I don’t think it will be too busy.

I saw a pic of a bouquet of Muscari, which looks like this. It is blue, but not sure of the availability of it, especially organic!

But then I saw this bouquet with Muscari and really thought it was beautiful.

 

It said the bouquet has muscari, tweedia, nigella, delphiniums. It has anemones, too which you said are not available. But maybe you could do something with some little wildlfowers like these and muscari and irises. Your dress kind of has a vintagey vibe to it and I think something wildflower looking like this would be gorgeous!

scabiosa is generally available as an organic. you could also use hydroponic roses if you’re trying to avoid pesticides. If you buy locally, you most likely will get an organic flower instead of what’s produced on the larger flower farms.

Volkenfreiden is a canadian version of belladonna that has an electric blue tone.

Is it blue you are looking for? I don’t know where you live but in late may you could hit lilly of the valley, lilac, peonies, and hydrangea right out of someone’s backyard if you are trying to go the non corporate/pesticide way. 🙂
