‘True Blue’ Bridal Party Theme

Blue for Bridesmaids was a recurrent and very successful bridal party colour scheme in 2011 and I loved it.  Blue has always been a favourite colour of mine and when it comes to  matching flowers to it, it is so versatile.  Soft pink is fabulous with blue, as is white.

If you are a spring bride  and want blue flowers incorporated into your bridal theme you will have a wonderful choice  at your finger tips, ranging from hyacinths, to nigella (love in a mist), delphinium and muscari.  Early summer brides have the wonderful blue hydrangea , sweetpea and eryngium to choose from.

Dyed-blue fresh roses are available but I am reluctant to use them for that very reason – they are dyed!  I dont take chances around wedding gowns.  If your heart is positively set on blue roses you could either use blue stablized roses or the best quality silk you can find.  I have seen both and they are fantastic (I have personally used silk flowers incorporated along side fresh flowers – see if you can spot it from the gallery below).
