Blue Wedding Flowers
The flowers that you choose for your special day say a lot about your personal style and taste. The color blue always conjures up thoughts of royalty and prestige. If you want your flowers to say, "class and sophistication" then choosing blue flowers is right for you.
There are a few choices of natural blue flowers for you to pick from that will make your reception look elegant and stylish.
Blue hydrangeas make beautiful bridal and bridesmaids bouquets. Baby blue or white ribbons wrapped around the stems create a full bouquet that says, "Elegance." These large, lacy flowers make a lovely table centerpiece and can easily be grown in your backyard.
Not only are hyacinths a beautiful flower, they also have a wonderful fragrance that will fill your room with a fabulous aroma. Bouquets can be arranged with three or four stems intermingled with baby's breath.

Delphiniums are regal in color and elegant in stature, rendering them a graceful and distinct centerpiece and bouquet. They come in an array of astounding shades of blue and can be used to surround white roses in a bridal bouquet.

Blue irises convey tranquility, faithfulness and the beauty of a cloudless sky. All of this emotion can be captured in the bride’s bouquet and table arrangements. For a fabulous centerpiece, offset the irises with yellow roses and baby blue ribbon.
True blue orchids will bring grace and style to any wedding. The most popular blue orchid is called the Vanda which has a vibrant blue coloring and is not dyed but authentic. They are rare and will surely blow your budget.
There aren't too many natural blue flowers to choose from, so how about asking your local florist to have white roses, calla lilies, tulips or carnations colored by using blue dye. Your florist will purchase the flowers and add a few drops of food coloring or dye to the water of your chosen flowers and Presto, your roses, calla lilies, tulips or carnations will be a beautiful shade of blue. This process will be a little more costly, but will certainly be a conversation starter.
Blue Wedding Flowers - Poinsettias
The first time I saw a blue poinsettia I thought, WOW. This poinsettia had a sprinkling of glitter and a few white twigs placed among the leaves. Placing the poinsettia in a blue pot definitely gave the impression of class and royalty.
The above tall centerpiece was created using white roses, calla lilies and hydrangeas. A smattering of blue vine flowers was added to the arrangement and to the water in the vase, giving the centerpiece just a touch of color.
Creating beautiful bouquets, centerpieces, and boutonnieres might be a
bit challenging, but you certainly can have your blue wedding flowers if
you use your imagination and proper planning.
