How to incorporate the colour blue into your wedding flowers
Q – I love the colour blue and want to incorporate the hue into our wedding flowers. What blooms do you suggest we look for?
"What’s not to love about the colour blue? Not only does it represent the sky and sea, but it also means trust, loyalty and sincerity – a perfect reason to choose this hue for such a special occasion. When it comes to selecting your wedding flowers, you may come across one too many artificial sprayed carnations or roses online. Thankfully, there are a variety of natural blue shades, tints and textures to choose from with no spray can insight.
"Start with gesture blooms, there are hydrangeas, delphiniums, alliums, larkspurs and tweedia, each available in a variety of textures and shades. These can be lifted with filler options such as clematis, Nigella seed heads, forget-me-nots and thistles.
"Blue also works with different shades such as ivory, peach, soft pinks and lavender. Why not also add in some sage colours such as green hanging amaranthus to add further texture to hanging centrepieces and cascading bouquets?"
