Regardless of your sense of style and taste, when it comes to planning weddings, we all tend to fall back on at least a few standard rules, including the age-old list of good-luck charms, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” The bride can choose to find these items herself, or her friends and relatives can bring them as offerings as she prepares to get married. Sometimes these symbolic wishes can be seen throughout the wedding day, when they stand out as tokens of love and hope. A great way to incorporate your “something blue” is with a few florals that accent bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces throughout your ceremony and reception. The design experts at Marco Island Weddings have a few ideas about how to include beautiful blue blooms in your wedding day festivities.
Delphinium- This elegant flower comes on an elongated stem for a creative architectural spin on a bride’s bouquet. Let beautiful blue delphinium, also known as larkspur, grace your bouquet with plenty of stylish shape. Or, fill centerpieces with these delightful stalks for a beautiful touch of blue.
Hyacinth- These fragrant beauties often bloom on small enough stalks to make them perfect for corsages or boutonnieres. Tough, thick stems also make a great presentation in clear vases for a sweet touch at individual place settings.
Hydrangea- Known as the ultimate filler flower, hydrangea are a great way to add a subtle touch of blue to an otherwise bright bouquet. Soft petals peek out from among showier blooms for a hint of something blue. However, these gorgeous full heads can also be designed into their own bouquet, allowing them to come center stage for a romantic, lacy elegance.
However you choose to incorporate a bit of blue into your wedding day, consider the addition blue flowers will be to your wedding day color scheme and decor. Fresh, lovely blooms make for gorgeous pictures and a sweet ambiance. Talk to the floral designers at Marco Island Weddings for more fresh ideas about including something blue in your wedding decor.
