We’ve picked a blueish teal and white for the colors for our April 2010 wedding. I’m wondering what other Spring Wedding Colors others have picked? And what about Spring flowers? I was thinking hydrangeas but I heard they can be expensive in the Spring. We’re doing floating candle centerpieces so I don’t need flowers for those. What blue flowers are possible?

I am getting married in March and have chosen ivory, orange, and pink as my wedding colors. Martha Stewart has pretty ideas for Spring weddings on her wedding website.
Tulips and Hydrangea are beautiful Spring flowers. Good luck 🙂

I’m using a periwinkle blue, with accents of pink, purple and sage green. Which is a very springy color combo. Yellow is also very springy! The flowers I’m using are mostly blue hydrangea, pink tulips and purple roses. No one told me tha hydrangea was expensive in the spring, I only got that reaction when I asked for lily of the valley.

I didn’t think hydrangea were expensive either. Anyway, check Project Wedding and select blue flowers. This is what I got and you can search through there for blue flowers.
HERE is a list of types of blue flowers, it’s just too bad it doesn’t have pictures so you would have to search the different kinds. A good florist could also probably make some good recommendations. I know carnations, for example, can be dyed any color.
Scroll to the bottom HERE for another list of blue flowers

We have a wiki on flowers, but alas there aren’t that many blue flowers!

I’ve seen deep blue forget-me-nots, which are very pretty! I’d think they would complement the teal well, since both are gem colors.

I’m getting married April 2010 as well :] Our wedding colors will be hot pink and black, with damask… I’m trying to figure out what flowers to do though…

I’m May 09 (so close!!) and my girls are in Jim Hjelm honeydew green, but their flowers will be bright sorbet-y colors… salmon, coral, peach, pink, and some red. I’ve used these colors in every aspect of the wedding design so far, from the Jelly Belly favors to the lining of the envelopes (some guests’ invite envelopes are lined in solid red, some are in solid honeydew green, etc) and it really looks awesome =) The other accent colors are ivory and black.

We’re getting married in early May 2010 and right now I’m stuck on black + white with accents of fuscia and a chartreuse/lime color. I’m not a huge tulip fan but I’ve seen some beautiful centerpieces with white tulips that I might try out. I’m also a huge candle fan so we’ll probably use as many candles as possible and not as many flowers!

May 09 and our colour scheme is pastel pink, gold (champagne), ivory white and black (thrown in only because of I am using the gocco for the invites and well, when the fonts don’t turn out well, at least I can touch them up) 🙂 For the reception, I am using white orchids in pots and jars tied with pink polka dotted ribbons and I havent decided for the dinner! If you need help with colour schemes, do check out snippet and ink website – they have loads of inspiration boards there 🙂

April of 2009 and our color scheme is aqua and plum. We are using sweet peas and lisianthus. The centerpieces will have stock and roses. The flowers will be in the purple family. They pop against the aqua. It will be beautiful!

I’m having light blue and white for my wedding and the following flowers are what I’m looking into to match my calla lilies:
Blue dendrobium orchids, blue metallic thistle, light blue delphinium, stephanotis…
Hope this helps and good luck!
