  • Blue remains one of the more popular color themes among today’s brides. Unfortunately nature gives us very little variety to work with. Some of the most common blue flowers include: hydrangea, delphinium (hybrid and standard),  hyacinth, grape muscari, tweedia, scabioisa, iris and statice to name a few. Call us for more suggestions!

Chocolate and Blue is only one color combination that is defining today’s weddings. We have also seen a lot of bright and pale yellow used along with shades of blue for a nautical or preppy themed wedding. Hot pink and turquoise blue are excellent choices for a Caribbean or Latin feel. The options are endless. Call us for more suggestions or guidance.

Maybe you have heard the news? The world’s first “blue rose” was developed through the application of Suntory’s original biotechnology in Japan recently. Florigene, an Australian company, know best for their lavender and purple carnations, is working in conjunction with Suntory to bring this unique variety to market within 2-3 years.

  • But don’t get too excited. The cost will be substantially higher than we may care to pay. Additionally, the rose is actually a bit more lavender than blue at this stage. Still, once again, science proves to influence our lives and flowers more than we know. We’ll keep you posted.
