Chocolate Brown and Baby Blue Flowers For September Wedding.

Ask the Expert: September wedding what kind of flowers?

We live in the high desert in CA, the wedding is in September, the colors are baby blue and chocolate brown.  What flowers would you suggest?  We are on a limited budget.  I was even thinking of just going with white roses with a “splash” of blue for the for bride and an assortment for bridesmaids. What is a good flower that is blue? Kim

  1. Kim,

    There are several flowers which are considered blue. However most tend to be more toward the purple scale than the baby blue scale. I am listing the flower that I know are considered blue. available in September and relatively cost efficient.

    Blue flowers are Agapathus, blue lace flower (Didiscus), Asters, Brodeiaea, Delphinum, Echinops, Iris, Lavender, Scabiosia, Veronica, larkspur, Nigella, Trachelium, Tweedia. Be sure to express to your local florist that you want sky blue or baby blue flowers. Your florists will be able to narrow you choices to the varieties that are truly baby blue instead of what is called blue.

    I would recommend using Delphinium, Larkspur or Nigella for the blue and incorporate a chocolate brown ribbon in the bouquet to achieve your wedding color theme. I would use white rose in the bridal bouquet and white daisies in the bridesmaid bouquets. Your local florist will probably have several wonderful suggestion as well. The important thing is to convey the fact that you want baby blue flowers. Together you and your florist should be able to come up with wedding flowers that follow your color theme and your budget.

  2. Many types of blue flowers can add color to your wedding through traditional floral arrangements or by adding blue colored flowers to your reception decorations.

    There are quite a few blue wedding flowers whose shades vary from pale baby blue to dark blue-green. Which includes- Delphinium, Monkshood, Hydrangea, Statice, Veronica, Morning Glory, Lobelia, Sweet Pea, Lupine, Juniper, Berries, Phlox, Hibiscus, Tulips, Columbine, Flax, Plumbago,Bayberry, Butterfly Bush, Bachelor Button.

    Purple will bring a sense of richness to the cooler shades of blue and can add some warmth. Think about using silver accents, like vases, ribbon, or foil, to enrich your blue colored flowers. Lupine and Delphinium, with their dainty flowers, will really shine arranged with a background of trailing ivy, ferns, or the leaves of your flower choice.

    Happy Marriage life in advance!

    What flowers would you recommend for a burgendy/silver wedding? I also have very little money would like to know your opinion.

  4. Amanda,

    There are a few flowers that are considered inexpensive and are available in burgundy: gladiolus, fressia, chrysanthemums, alstroemeria, carnations. I can’t think of any silver flowers but you could use white and embellish the flowers with silver ribbon.

    If it were my wedding, I would use vases of gladiolus to decorate the wedding ceremony and the reception. Although, you could also use glads in baskets. You florists will know the most cost-effective way to arrange the glads. Burgundy glads have a very rich appearance and will make a very bold statement.

    For the bridesmaid bouquets, use a mixture of carnations with seeded eucalyptus (kind has a silvery look) or a pageant presentation bouquet of gladiolus with a beautiful silver ribbon criss-crossed down the stems.

    For the bridal bouquet, I would use large burgundy chrysanthemums, seeded eucalyptus and iridescent silver ribbon.

    Of course your florist may have cost-effective ways to use high-end flowers like roses, calla lilies and gerberas in conjunction with the other beautiful but inexpensive flowers that I have suggested.

    Good luck and may all your wedding dreams come true. While planning your wedding check out Wedding and Party Network.

    As important as the color are the actual flowers that you choose for your wedding. Roses are a mainstay of all wedding seasons, but in the fall you’re not bound to the basic reds and pinks of other seasons… Thanks for post!
