The Best Blue Wedding Flowers (and 16 Gorgeous Blue Bouquets)

If you're sold on this versatile shade for your wedding color palette, we have the perfect stems to round out your arrangements.
by Andrea Fowler

Floral arrangements are one of the best ways to bring your wedding color palette to life, so it's important to know what hues you want before meeting with your florist. Leading with a specific hue means it's easier to identify which flower options you have, then you can narrow down the best stems by season. For example, hydrangea grows in range of beautiful blue shades but it usually blooms from late spring through the summer, meaning the cost per stem might cost more for a winter wedding.

If you fall in love with a blue bloom that's out of your budget, lean on your florist to recommend a substitute—you might be surprised to find you like the alternative even more than the original! Here are our favorite blue bloom to start you out:
