You already figured out which “old,” “new,” and “borrowed” items to use on the big day. But what about the “blue” one? Maybe the cool tone doesn’t mesh well with your palette, or you are just unsure on how to include it in a way that doesn’t look out of place. Luckily, lots of brides have relied on their floral bouquet to incorporate the color.
Here are just a few simple ways to incorporate “something blue” into your arrangement:
Minimal Blue Blooms
This bouquet is lush with just a few pops of blue. The sprinkling of the hue is just enough to be both subtle and serve its purporse. Keep in mind that you can also request that your florist dye your favorite blooms to a blue shade. Photo by Tec Petaja; Bridal Salon: Carine's Bridal Atelier; Floral Design by Amaryllis, Inc.
If you’re having difficulty finding the perfect azure-colored flower for you, you can always include a succulent in your bouquet. In this particular bouquet, the succulent is understated and mixed in with an assortment of springtime florals that take center state. This is also a fun choice because you will be able to keep your “something blue” even after the big day. Photo by Paul Barnett Photographer
You might find that blue flowers are undesirable or contrast too much with your monochromatic color choice. If so, see if you like the look of a blue ribbon tied around your bouquet. Since ribbon is available in an assortment of patterns and fabrics, you’ll be able to personalize the style to what you feel is most fitting for your special day. It also makes for a great last-minute addition for your “something blue.” Photo by Lauren Rosenau Photography
Nearly All-Blue Bouquet
Maybe you decided that you want this color entirely in your nosegay, so that it’s very obvious that your bouquet is special and serving as your “something blue.” All-blue bouquets are not uncommon in modern weddings, and fortunately they work well with various themes. Muscari blooms, irises, tweedia, and hydrangeas serve as versatile blue florals, but your florist will best consult with you for your specific vision. Photo by Next Exit Photography
