I don’t know if you found the answer yet, but below is a link with the name and number of the florist for this bouquet. At the very least, you could call and ask.

ETA: I found them. Viburnum Tinus berries. There are different varieties, and I’m sure your florist can find them from there. I couldn’t tell the difference between some of them enough to be sure. Good luck!

A little time on GOOGLE, tells me they might be any of the following…

  • Blueberries (on the stems)… Doubtful, they don’t look like Blueberries to me (in that they aren’t round enough)
  • Hypercium Berries… often used in Bouquets, come in a lot of colours (altho I couldn’t find any blueish ones)
  • Aronia Choke Berries (I really think this is what they may very well be)
  • Elderberries

Whatever they are… the Bouquet is very pretty.  I’d speak to / work with a Florist to see what is available to you (in season) as when it comes to “berries / fruit” that is going to be a critical deal in creating that type of look.

Hope this helps,

EDIT TO ADD – IF they are Viburnum Tinus Berries (I didn’t know they came in blue) as HisMoon:  has said (and they sure look like it) you should be aware that they can be poisonous !!  So not something I’d want to have in MY bouquet… incase there were kids or pets about (never knowing if a berry would drop from your bouquet)

Whereas, Cokecherries(and chokeberries) are readily available in many parts of the USA and Canada, and are not harmful to humans… other than they are very sour & bitter.  They are safe for most “in town / city” situatoins… as they are only harmful to some animals including horses, moose, deer, goats, cattle and others with segmented stomachs.  So unless you are having your Wedding around those types of Animals… you should be good to go.

Hope this helps,
