I don’t think any flowers come in Navy Blue.  I’ve seen dark blue looking anenomes, but they really aren’t a true blue.

Why don’t you just do white flowers?

Dusty miller for sure!  It has a silvery leaf look goin’ on.

You could always add some navy bouquet jewels into a field of white flowers and have blue and white striped or dotted ribbon wrapping the bouquet handle.

All I can say is good luck! My original colors were navy blue and silver…until I realized how limited navy blue flowers are, especially in the midwest in the fall. I know silver is an accent color, but you might want to look at adding another accent color unless you don’t want a lot of variety. We are doing pink as an accent, and having pink gerbers, pink alstromeria, white stock, white roses, and dark blue delphinium (it’s fairly close to navy) bc everything else was just soooo expensive. And to be honest, I don’t think there are even that many navy blue naturally colored flowers, without having them dyed. I wish I could be more help, but flowers for me were such a struggle because of the limitation, so I just want to be honest!

I think navy goes well with any bright color too if you want a pop of something else.  Hot pink would look cool.

I think blue flowers are generally hard to find, unless you wan to do hydrangeas.  What if you made your bouquets white/cream and added an accent color, like pink, orange or yellow?

My colors are the same. We are doing white garden roses (although I debated carnations and peonies too, because I love them SO much), white spray roses, gardenias and stephanotis for the white.

For the blues we are using dark blue delphinium like jrswiggy posted above, and also using blue veronica. My florist suggested dendrobium orchids too but said their blue color could not be guaranteed–sometimes they came in nice and dark, and sometimes they came in looking like electrified. You could also consider hydrangeas.

Dusty miller would add a nice silver accent and I think it would look good with the carnations. We are not doing anything for silver except for the ribbons. We are also using greenery and baby’s breath to finish things off.

I am not sure if carnations and iris and sunflowers all together are very cohesive, because I think of carnations and sunflowers fulfilling the same role in the bouquet. That being said, I think the colors look gorgeous together and if you like it then you should go for it.

My wedding colors are also Navy Blue and Silver…but White is going to be used quite a bit with the decorations….I am going traditional….white flowers for Bridesmaids and red for myself….I think they white will really pop against their blue dress and the red against mine….of course the ribbon will the colors of the wedding.

We were navy and champagne and used blush and cream colored flowers and the tried and true Dusty Miller. 🙂
