Blue Wedding Flowers

The color blue conveys the tranquility of a pristine ocean, the uplifting spirit of a sun-filled sky or the confidence of a blue-ribbon victory. With symbolism ranging from faithfulness and loyalty to intelligence and peace, blue flowers add a cool and calm beauty to any floral arrangement. In many diverse cultures blue is significant in religious beliefs, brings peace, or is believed to keep the bad spirits away.


Blue is a rare color in a garden and therefore a rare color in a florist’s cooler.
