i won’t be using blue flowers, but another flower that is blue besides hydrangeas is delphinium. they’re a tall flower that would probably work well in centerpieces.

 I did not carry blue flowers, but I put a lot of thought into it.

 Have you ever heard of design master floral paints?  Well, they are really wonderful for making flowers the color you like (we used them on white roses and calla lilies to make them a deep pink for a bridal shower- white calla lilies cost A LOT less than deep pink).  DM paints are formulated for real flowers, look pretty natural if you’re patient spraying them (do a few coats so there’s no dripping), and come in so many colors.

 

 I ordered mine from here http://www.crafta.com/floral-supply-floral-spray-color.html

 Frankly, I love it when brides mix some white in with a blue bouquet to balance it a little but.  Mrs. Tiramisu had a beautiful bouquet

but hers was a little more purple- you could do something sort of similar and use the spray if you wanted flowers which were more blue.

 On the knot there is a page which features blue bouquets/flowers http://weddings.theknot.com/ODB/themes/realweddings/results.aspx?STOPREDIRECTING=1&type=3&wedding_details=Bridal+Bouquets&colors=blue&MsdVisit=1

Flowers you could use that are naturally a true blue-

Blue Hydrangea, orchids- http://www.fiftyflowers.com/product/Blue-Dendrobium-Orchids_10.htm, thistle= http://www.fiftyflowers.com/product/Blue-Metallic-Thistle-Flower_10.htm, Delphinium http://www.fiftyflowers.com/product/Light-Blue-Delphinium-Flower_10.htm, blue roses

 

  Flowers you could enhance with color that would be pretty:

Anything white- examples: roses, calla lilies, peonies, garden roses, hyacinth http://www.fiftyflowers.com/product/Hyacinth-White-Flower_8.htm,   Phlox, tulips, dahlias, mums, daisies- the possibilities are unlimited.

I will be using blue hydrangea.  They will be incorporated into the bouquets with white roses.  The centerpieces will be blue hydrangea that I am ordering in bulk from costco.com.

I am not carrying blue flowers, but my bridesmaids will have some and the centerpieces will as well.  If you are getting married in the summer and it is hot out, do NOT use hydrangeas, they will wilt and look dead. If you are inside and the building is air conditioned they should be fine.  I am doing blue stephanotis in the bouquets and ceremony decor and using hydrangeas inside.
