Red, White, & (ut oh!) BLUE

In celebration of 4th of July this weekend, I thought I would do a blog on blue flowers. Many times, we have brides that come in with blue as one of their wedding colors. However, much to their dismay, blue is an extremely hard choice of flower color with very few options of choices, and many times they appear more purple. I usually suggest they bring in the blue tone to alternate areas such as table linens, containers, ribbon, fabric, etc. and keep the flowers in a complimenting color. Not to mention, with the wide range of beautiful blue shades out there, it's extremely difficult, if not impossible, to match your blue bridesmaids/invitations/etc. to a specific flower. However, it is quite easy to find a wide range of fabrics, ribbons, and textures in whatever shade you desire. Here are some great inspiration boards I found online from bride's that had blue as one of their wedding colors.
