Blue is proving to be a hot color for weddings and events for 2012. Paired with vibrant oranges, bright yellows, or left as a dramatic monochromatic theme, blue is a fun color no matter what hue you choose. Here are some of our favorite blue flowers:
- Hydrangeas – Hydrangeas are a classic wedding pick that come in several shades of blue. Whether you choose a soft sky blue, or a deeper indigo blue, the hydrangea is an elegant way to dress any display table. Because they are such a dense flower, even a few stems of hydrangeas make an eye-catching display, potentially saving you money on your flower budget.
- Blue Spider Flower – Despite their creepy, crawly name, blue spider flowers offer an exciting addition to a floral arrangement. Resembling a burst of party streamers, the long, thin petals shoot out of the center, making it a celebration-worthy addition to your bouquet.
- Cornflowers – Blue cornflowers typify spring and summer and offer a shock of electric blue to any arrangement. With rows of ruffled petals, they are like the sophisticated older sister of the carnation. Capped off with a black stigma (the center of the flower), they are a perfect compromise for the bride and groom who are wanting a flower that is somewhere between feminine and masculine.
- Blue Roses – Blue seems such an unlikely color for roses and that is what makes these blue-hued roses an unexpected surprise. If an all-blue rose bouquet is too much blue for your taste, you can break them up with complimentary colors, or even flowers that are a light shade of blue.
