@GoldStar:  Have you thought about nigelas, agapanthus, and tweedia?

Here’s a pic with blue tweedia:

and here’s a bouquet with both agapanthus and nigelas, mixed in with bright colours:

I also have blue as a color theme for our wedding, and I will tell you from experience that unless you’re willing to have flowers painted, you probably won’t find anything you like, especially with light blue – it will be fairly difficult for you to find something in a lighter blue that doesn’t look “grandma” (and I totally get what you mean by that!)

I would definitely try to avoid blue unless you see something you really love – I think bright colored bouquets with pinks and yellows would look awesome and very summery!

Hey there! Our colors were blue, white/ivory, and pops of yellow. Our main flower was blue hydrangreas (which I know isn’t your taste) but we did have other blue flowers. Look at blue thisle, larkspur, and delphiniums. Here are some pictures from our wedding last month. Hope this helps!

@GoldStar: 

Hi,
 I’m doing blues and greens as my colors. Probably navy blue dresses with light and briight greens and light blues. For blues, I’ll probably do some blue hyndrangeas. I also really like blue hyacinth and blue thistle and succulents. Also, I don’t think you necessarily have to have flowers that match the color of the dresses exactly, rather just colors that compliment the dress colors.
Good luck!!

@GoldStar:  No problem! We’re going with blue dendrobium orchids, which are basically fuscia orchids sprayed with a turquoise blue. Best of luck to you, I hope you find something that you absolutely love 🙂

Blue Eryngium is very cool looking and naturally blue.

Cornflower is naturally blue as well:

if you don’t like the blue flowers, dark and light blue delphenium are beautiful. There is also blue lisianthus! However if you just skipped the blues and stick to the colors you said above, I bet it will look gorgeous either way!

@GoldStar:  Here are a few ideas for you

I know you want your bouquet to be mostly color with a bit of white (this has a couple white/cream roses)

and you could just do the opposite version for the bridesmaids with maybe mostly white/cream roses with a few pops of blue added in

I’m having small pieces of hydrangea in my bouquet rather than a whole chunky flower. Maybe that would help?
