The age-old adage “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue” is a beloved wedding tradition even to this day. No matter your wedding style or design, there is a way to incorporate a hint of blue into your big day. One of our favorites? Blue wedding flowers. “Adding tones of blue to your wedding color palette is an elegant way to create something timeless,” says floral designer Erice McNeff.
From hydrangea to hyacinth, there’s a plethora of flowers to consider if you’re opting for floral arrangements in shades of blue. “French blue is the tone most naturally found in nature, and it’s a color that will never go out of style,” shares McNeff. Hanging installations, bridesmaids’ bouquets, and even a corsage all hold endless possibilities when it comes to design direction. “It’s also a color that can lend itself to a variety of color palettes; most obviously it suits well with creamy whites, but can also be stunning against yellow, tan, and pink.”
Amongst a wide range of flowers available for a stunning blue arrangement, delphinium and hydrangea are a go-to, says McNeff. “They’re available year-round and very easily accessible. For something more unique, I recommend Muscari or hyacinth.”
