I, personally, believe adding the blue would stand out more.  I love the idea.  I love the second picture down.  Gorgeous.

I agree with your family friend.  The blue flowers look really pretend.  I think that white/cream peonies, caila’s, or the black/white anemones would be great!

I think its really a personal decision. You have to decide if you want your silk flowers to look real (then go with white boquet) or want them to match your colors (go with blue). My sister had purple silk flowers at her wedding and they looked great.

And if you decide to go with white/off-whte it won’t look bad at all with black and white. The off-white just makes the flowers look more real.

If you want a hit of blue then go for it. There are some blue flowers in nature:

  grape hyacinth

 scilla

 Himalayan Blue Poppy

 Hydrangea

 morning glory

Just make sure she uses silk flowers that really do come in blue in nature.

try blue iris (very affordable) or blue delphinium. 🙂

We’re using navy blue as one of our colors but I don’t like the look of most blue flowers b/c they do look fake.  It’s more a personal choice really.  I do love the blue hydrangeas but they’re probably not the royal blue you’re looking for.  Save-on-Crafts also has a blue dried globe thistle flower that is gorgeous that we’re using in some of our decorating.

I think that blue flowers would look beautiful and would really make the bouquet pop.  I’ll second the though of just using silks of flowers that do come in blue in nature and they won’t look “fake”.

For royal blue try blue salvia, hybrid delphinium, delphinium, blue iris (there are 17 shades at least), hydrangea (there is one that is a “hotter” blue than most others), cornflower (normally known as bachelor buttons), love in the midst, and/or scabiosa. And maybe monkshood (dried).
