shop flea markets and antique/thrift stores for cobalt blue bottles.  You could use those for vases for the daisies.

Thread makes a very bright shade of blue for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

There aren’t going to be any flowers that are naturally that shade but I’m sure you could find ties that color.

What is it specifically that you’re looking for in that color? Linens? Other decor? Clothing? Shoes?

Cobalt is one of our colors (along with coral)!  We have ‘horizon’ bm dresses, are using cobalt napkins at our reception, and have potted flower centerpieces in pots like these:

Thanks!! Mine aren’t exactly that shape, they’re actually more of a traditional ‘flower pot’ shape with a rim, but the pottery looks just like that.  We’re having flowers grown for us from a friend who owns a farm, and using them as centerpieces.

It took me forever to find something I loved, but definitely the thing to do is to visit a garden store (I had MUCH better luck with a small, more local store than Home Depot or Lowe’s- we have Agway), and ask.  There, they let me look through their catalogs to find something I loved, and they let me order them at a reduced bulk price. I love them!

Yay!  These are our colors as well, so I guess we are color twins? 😀  The fiance and I are drinking a lot of rieslings in cobalt blue bottles to use as vases (over time, of course hehe).  We are early in the planning, so thats the only colbalt idea we’ve settled on yet, but I’ll keep you posted as we get more 🙂
