MrsSapphire:  That’s a gorgeous ring! My only input is I grow these and I don’t remember them being super deep blue. They are very dainty and not super long stemmed, though I’m sure florists can work magic. They don’t have any aroma. They are also called Annual Bachelor Buttons (as opposed to the different looking Perennial Bachelor Buttons).

I will be using anemones – the white ones with navy blue in the middle

Blue flowers aren’t super common, much less blue flowers that can be cut for bouquets. That said, here’s all the blue flowers from our floral proposal (wedding colors are blue and orange):

  • Blue thistle
  • Navy blue privet berry
  • Blue hyndrangea
  • Blue delphinium

My bouquet had some really pretty blue flowers incorporated. I had blue thistles, silver brunia, and blue delphinium. My bouquet also had navy and ivory ribbon wrapped around the base. The flowers held up pretty nice considering they survived a helicopter ride, strong cool winds on a glacier, and lots of running around town for photos. The thistles are especially sturdy and don’t have any aroma if that’s something you’re interested in! Here’s a close up photo of the flowers. Hope it helps!
