    I had blue as a wedding color and refused to let the florist use any blue flowers. I personally think flowers should look natural.  I think this is even more important if they are silk.  If they’re blue, they will draw more attention and people will not think for a second that they might be real. If you don’t really care about whether they look possible real and need more color then I can understand, but I would prefer real flower colors.

    There are some naturally blue flower that they may also sell.  I have no idea what their names are…but they could provide an accent.  I don’t think all of the blues need to match exactly.

    I think if you’re hoping on first glance people will think you used real flowers, then you don’t want to go with blue.

    If you’re set on blue flowers, what about a hydrangea?

    I really dislike the look of blue roses.  They stick out like a sore thumb to me.

    I’d suggest to do flowers that are naturally grown blue (in fresh or silk).  There are lots of options:

    Blue hydrangea:

    Blue delphinium:

    Iris:

    There are a few other blue flowers that grow naturally.  I’d suggest to either google “naturally grown blue flowers” or talk to a florist.  Taking to them is free, and you could always go with silks after you get their input.

    When I heard you wanted blue and a pomander, I thought of hydrangea right away!

    also… any flowers that are painted have the possibility of staining… imagine those blue roses staining your white weding dress???!?
