Blue Weddings

Sat, 07/05/2016 - 17:02 -- Marion

Blue is a popular choice for weddings and I am often asked for blue flowers - and yes they are available! Look for blue delphiniums for a royal blue or hydrangeas for a softer pale blue. Other flowers to consider include agapanthas, cornflowers, nigella in the Summer months and muscari in the spring.

Alternatively add blue crystals to your vase arrangements, blue ribbon to your bouquets, blue sashes to your chair covers or even blue uplights to your venue walls!
