The bride, who chose a wedding blue bouquet for herself, knows how to create home comfort and get on well with the people around them. She is calm, sizeable, honest, trusting and has a very gentle nature. But a blue wedding bouquet should not be the only dark spot on a white wedding dress.

Tips for choosing a blue wedding bouquet

At the marriage ceremony, the bouquet for the bride should be special. Blue flowers will be a real decoration: delicate cornflowers or cute violets, fragrant lavender or chic crocuses, touching poppies or fantastic roses. There are a huge number of shades: extravagant bright blue, unobtrusive white-blue with small stalks or diluted with lilac, burgundy, white flowers. Composition with blue hyacinths and a white wedding dress will look harmonious. The bride should complement them with blue accessories: jewelry, shoes or a belt.

Color spectrum

When choosing colors, you should pay attention to the natural shade of colors, because sometimes sellers use different dyes for them. In order for the bride, who chooses bright wedding flowers, to look amazing, it is desirable for her to adhere to some rules:

  1. Groom's boutonniere should be blue.
  2. Bridesmaids need to wear blue or blue dresses.
  3. To decorate the hall, where the celebration will take place, you need blue balloons or other decor of this color.

Size of flowers

Blue wedding flowers look perfect in the hands of the owner of the same color eyes. They emphasize the expressiveness and beauty of the look. A girl with blue eyes is better to choose small field flowers. They will go well with a white dress in the Greek style. For brides with dark eyes, it is better to choose dark blue flowers from three large buds or large flowers in combination with smaller ones with a lighter shade. The decor is chosen any that depends on the imagination of the florist and the bride.

Presence of white color

White and blue palette - a very expressive combination of colors. White expresses purity, and blue expresses loyalty and love. Newlyweds often choose these two colors as the main ones at the wedding celebration. Blue and white flower arrangement is perfect for any wedding theme. Large white roses with small blue cornflowers or violets will be the highlight of the bride's attire. A good choice would be to design the entire wedding in a white - blue tone, according to the porcelain or marine theme. See the video below for the design of a blue-white wedding:

How to choose flowers for a bouquet?

Roses in any color are very popular with brides, and the wedding arrangement of roses in blue and blue tones has become a fashionable trend of recent years. These extravagant flowers were for a long time inaccessible to Russian brides. Blue roses were bred artificially, and they began to be imported to Russia quite recently. To the wedding bouquet harmoniously complements the image of the bride, florists remind:

  • Blue roses are ideally combined with the colors of blue, yellow, golden, pink, white.
  • The decoration of the wedding dress should be blue, purple, blue or white.
  • If the composition consists exclusively of blue roses, it must be diluted with buds, berries, green twigs or decorative ornaments.

Hortensia - the perfect flower for a wedding. She is loved by florists for resistance to weather and volume: a full-fledged composition for a bride comes from one branch. Hydrangea perfectly combines with all living plants, without exception, and thanks to a wide palette of shades, professionals easily perform exclusive floral arrangements. Blue hydrangea has a natural color. Flowers of this large-leaved shrub are used not only for landscape compositions, but also as the main flower in bouquets.

Graceful orchids symbolize happiness and family affluence. And the blue orchid is a symbol of spirituality, fidelity and purity, so the newlyweds love it. A charming flower will decorate any composition and bridal outfit. The beauty of an orchid is that it retains its fragrance and freshness for a long time, so florists gladly use it in wedding compositions. Blue orchids with green leaves will never be lost against the background of a wedding dress, making the image of the bride bold, unusual.

Master-class on creating a bouquet with your own hands

You can create a wedding bouquet by yourself. For this you will need:

  • large flowers - 10 pcs.,
  • narrow tape
  • greens for cuffs,
  • fabric for decorating the handle,
  • decorative needles.

We begin to create a bouquet:

  1. From the flowers (we will take the classics for the wedding - roses) we will remove the leaves and thorns so that the buds will be folded into a single round shape and not protruding. Then we attach several flowers in parallel to each other.
  2. Stem stacked on a spiral technique, as shown in the photo. For the bouquet to be in the shape of a hemisphere, at the same time form a beautiful hat in a semicircle, without crossing the stems.
  3. Tie flowers tightly with tape or special tape in the place where they were held by hand. We make a few turns, and only then we pull down the tape knot.
  4. Cut the greens, if it strongly stands for the edges of the bouquet. And then complete it by creating a cuff that is tied the same way as the stems.
  5. At the end, attach the brooch to the handle and the bridal bouquet will be ready!

Photo-collection of beautiful bouquets in blue

Here is a selection of several photos of blue wedding bouquets for every taste. Perhaps you take a note of one of them and order one for your celebration? Wedding in blue is relevant at any time of the year: in summer it is associated with the sea, in the fall with air, in winter with snow, and in spring with sky. No matter what the wedding will be: Scandinavian or pirate, sea or in the style of "Avatar". Blue bridal bouquet will still be the main element of the celebration. Enjoy watching!

Deciding on a variety of colors

When buying plants, you should pay attention to the following nuances:

    In what style wedding will be framed. A bouquet of simple wildflowers that can be purchased at appropriate stores is best suited for rural areas, and for a solemn ceremony it is better to pay attention to expensive and lush bouquets of rare varieties.

What kind colors will prevail at the wedding. If the bride does not believe in superstition, then she can choose the color of the plants based on her own ideas. Typically, designers do not recommend using black - the color of mourning. For example, black roses are used only on thematic events that take place in unusual places.

Classically, plant colors mean the following:

  • What time of the year will the wedding be held?. If the wedding budget is limited, it is best to choose the so-called "seasonal" flowers. Of course, there is the possibility of delivering a bouquet from Holland, but the price of such a masterpiece will be just fabulous. It is best to carefully examine the flora of your region and understand what flowers bloom in the wedding season. It is meaningless to give general recommendations on this item due to the temperature difference depending on the region of Russia.
  • Color combinations

    An important factor when creating a wedding bouquet with your own hands are the color combinations. Most often, brides choose a neutral neutral color: pink, turquoise, white, but sometimes they want to combine several different colors in one bouquet. In this case, the color wheel will help.

    A bride can go one of two ways:

      Choose those colors that lie nearby, for example, yellow and orange or blue and blue. In this case, the bouquet will look harmoniously with the dress in the appropriate style and with the advising color scheme.

  • Choose those colors that lie opposite each other - the so-called "contrasting colors", for example, yellow and blue. This bouquet will be very bright and attract the attention of all guests of the event.
  • We select the flowers correctly

    First of all, you should pay attention to such factors as the freshness of flowers. Many people mistakenly believe that it is better to buy a closed bud, which then blooms, but such a flower can only be a core with side petals already cut off.

    Another important factor is the sort of flowers that the bride prefers. The most resistant flowers are roses, callas, freesia, lilies, orchids and chamomiles. However, they will not last long if the bride wants to use the bouquet on the stems. The best option would be portbukettitsa, which is able to save plants throughout the day.

    How to assemble a bridal bouquet with your own hands?

    There are several variants of the bouquet, each of which requires its own unique assembly.

      Bouquet on the stems. This is the easiest kind of composition. To make it, you need to buy flowers chosen by the bride, satin ribbons or cellophane, as well as decorations for a bouquet, for example, in the form of beads. All plants come together, their stems are cut and wrapped with satin ribbon or cellophane. Such a bouquet very quickly comes into disrepair, so during the event itself it should be kept as small as possible in the hands.

    Bouquet on the wire. The peculiarity of this bouquet is that each flower is fixed on the wire before assembly, and its stem is cut to the required length. After that, the bouquet is collected, as usual, and its leg is wrapped with a satin ribbon. This version of the bouquet looks very beautiful, but requires a lot of time and patience to create.

    Bouquet with the use of portbukettitsy. The most popular version of the wedding bouquet of the bride do it yourself recently. It belongs to the so-called "European style" and is distinguished by simplicity and convenience. Its production takes several hours and consists of the following stages:

      Portbukettice is a foam ball on a plastic base. If desired, the bride can glue on its base with stems, if she wants to create a feeling of naturalness, or immediately use a satin ribbon. For sticking the stems is best to use double-sided tape. The upper part of the portbook can be glued with leaves.

    Foam ball it is necessary to moisten with water - this will allow the bouquet to keep fresh throughout the day. Do not use too strong a stream of water, as it may be damaged. The wet ball should be inserted back into the base and the cap secured. For reliability, you can attach it with wire.

    Flower stalks for a bouquet should be cut to 5-6 centimeters, bark cleaned. Ready-made buds are simply “pressed” into the ball. Heavy elements of the bouquet is best further strengthened with wire. The buds should fit snugly together so that the composition does not fall apart.

  • Smaller flowers and bouquet decorations are set last.
  • To the bouquet with the portbukettice there must be a special relationship throughout the wedding day: you can not put it horizontally or throw, as the flowers may fall out of the composition.

    Step-by-step instructions for creating a bouquet of the bride with a photo:

    Who is suitable?

    Blue - a bright and rich color that does not suit everyone. He can be chosen by a confident and courageous bride who knows her worth. Such a bouquet will attract views, so a modest and timid girl may not feel very comfortable with him.

    What means?

    Although blue can not be called a romantic and delicate color, it is just the right way for such a celebration as a wedding. This connotation symbolizes nobility, tranquility, calmness, honesty, and devotion. So it is believed that the bride who chose the blue bouquet, will ensure a calm, happy and long family life and understanding with the spouse.

    What dress will be combined?

    Such a bold color like blue will be combined with a no less bright and stylish dress. It is better to forget about ball models with lush hem, as they require more delicate and classic accessories. You can choose an elegant fitting dress. The ideal option would be the model "mermaid" or "fish." It will be interesting to look and asymmetric hem.

    Choice of colors

    Blue flowers - not uncommon, in their nature they are found a lot. But which ones to choose?

    The most successful options:

    • Orchids not only symbolize prosperity and family well-being, but also are incredibly feminine, bright and at the same time delicate flowers. And they will delight the bride and everyone around with a stunning aroma.
    • Hydrangeas. This flowers will make the bouquet bright and voluminous, as well as prolong its service life due to its resistance to temperature extremes.
    • Blue roses are a rarity and real luxury. But in nature they are not found, but are born thanks to the efforts of florists and the use of blue paint. And this is what can lead to embarrassment. For example, the paint may stain the bridesmaid dress.
    • Irises are delicate and at the same time unusual and bright flowers, symbolizing hope and trust and having a subtle scent.
    • Lisantus (eustoma) resembles a rose remotely and looks no less elegant.
    • Anemones can be a bright accent image.

    Successful combinations

    In general, blue flowers do not have to be complemented by others, so they will be bright and interesting. But if you want to dilute such a bright shade, you can use others that are lighter and more tender.

    • Blue and white. This combination looks bright and elegant at the same time. White will not only calm the rampage of blue a little, but will also favorably emphasize its unusualness.
    • Blue and yellow. Such a bouquet will definitely be the center of attention, especially if you choose bright shades. And having chosen the pale yellow one, you can give the bouquet a little tenderness and make it more calm.
    • Blue and soft blue. Although these colors belong to the same range, but together they will create a good and bright tandem. And the more pronounced the contrast, the more interesting the bouquet will look.
    • Blue and beige. This is a very gentle and relatively calm combination that will make the image of the bride romantic, but interesting.
    • Blue, pink and white. If blue and pink will not be combined, white will dilute these shades and play the role of a certain border between them.
    • Red and blue. This option is suitable only for the most courageous brides.

    When combining flowers with each other, remember that simple ones (for example, field or garden ones) are best combined with the same ones. And the more unusual is better to pick up exotic.

    Many florists use greenery to create bouquets. If you decide to follow this bouquet, then do not choose too branchy and bright greens, it can overshadow the blue flowers. It is better to use several elongated arrows. In addition, in this case, it is desirable to dilute the blue flowers with white or beige.

    You can decorate a beautiful blue wedding bouquet with a satin white or blue ribbon. She can tie up the stems. If you choose a blue ribbon, then a bouquet of flowers must be in a different shade. Beads will look gentle, especially pearls. You can also use white lace or white tulle. Shining and too bright or voluminous decorative elements should be abandoned.

    Combination with accessories

    Blue bouquet is “reinforced” and supplemented with other wedding accessories of the same shade. You can choose a blue boutonniere for the groom, a blue ring cushion, ribbons for newlyweds glasses, bracelets for bridesmaids and so on. Кроме того, в таком смелом цвете могут быть оформлены и элементы убранства: например, украшения для стен (шары, ленты, цветы), салфетки или даже посуда для гостей.

    Useful tips

    Несколько рекомендаций для создания идеального букета своими руками:

    • Не стоит сочетать синий с другими насыщенными и необычными оттенками, букет может получиться слишком пёстрым, а вся насыщенность и глубина синего будут потеряны.
    • Blue color visually reduces flowers, so if you want to focus on them, choose large specimens.
    • Make a bouquet of flowers with small stems, as their green shade can make the main blue color pale, and the whole bouquet is inharmonious. It is advisable to shorten the stems to a minimum.
    • Before you make a bouquet, look at the photo to choose what you like.

    Recommendations


    Natural bouquet is good because you can do it yourself, saving a lot on the services of professional florists.

    Some wedding styles, such as country or rustic, encourage the use of plants grown on their own. Daffodils, tulips, peonies, gerberas, roses bloom beautifully in the gardens of the middle lane. Thus, the bouquet will turn out both budgetary and sincere.

    If you want to use imported flowers, be sure to consult with a familiar florist to purchase quality goods. Make an order in advance, at least one month before the wedding. So you just get exactly the plants that you dreamed of.

    Consider and some of the negative nuances of a bouquet of flowers:

    • Fragility - not all petals withstand numerous touches, frost, direct sunlight and drought, so carefully read the features of the selected plants and, if necessary, place them in a vase immediately after the solemn procession and photos.
    • For a winter celebration, it is reasonable to choose from cold-resistant colors., the benefit of them is quite a lot - carnations, tulips, ranunculuses, chrysanthemums, some types of roses.
    • An important point - the smell and pollen. Some buds, for example, lilies have a powerful fragrance that will kill your perfume, causing headaches or allergies. The same lilies are “famous” for their stamens, which are able to leave an orange mark on the dress.

    Decide exactly what you want from the composition - form, shades, specific plants. Be sure to consider both your own external data and the theme of the wedding. Classic celebrations like strict lines, thematic - asymmetry, cascade, unusual performance. Tall brides should choose a bigger bouquet, short ones - tiny and neat.

    If you have firmly decided to make an important accessory on your own, then soberly assess your capabilities.

    Without any experience you should not try to repeat complex floristic masterpieces immediately, especially on expensive flowers. Start simple - with a classic circle. To create such a shape, the flowers are placed slightly at an angle, so that the buds create a circle and the stems form a single leg.

    It is best to choose plants with straight but quite flexible stems for such compositions. However, in any case, you have to fix the leg with floral wire. If desired, the leg is replaced by a porter. From above, we add a decor carefully selected for the floral composition, the decor and style of the wedding - satin ribbon, chiffon fabric section, lace.

    A more complex option - a cascade composition in the form of a waterfall. For it, you will need a little more time, an abundance of greenery and plants with the longest possible stem, or with a natural flowing form, for example, orchids.

    Interesting and simple in the performance of pomander - a bouquet in the form of a sphere, fastened not on the stem, but on the ribbon. For him you will need a round floral sponge, in which you have to place the buds.

    Color matching

    The modern floristic market offers a variety of options: from field plants of our strip and ending with exotic proteus, turmeric, and orchids. It is worth choosing, based on your own taste, the theme of the wedding and the particular colors - the stronger they are, the less you have to worry about the safety of their freshness.

    The classic version is roses, a symbol of love and romance. Red, pink, white, strict elongated or fluffy peony, large or miniature - regal flowers in any case look great. Consider that from roses, firstly, it is necessary to cut the thorns, and secondly - they do not like their vase neighbors, so after the celebration the bouquet will have to be divided.

    Another common option is exquisite lilies or sensual orchids.confidently holding the second position in the top of the flowers for the wedding bouquet.

    Exotic alstromeria, eustoma, anemones, callas are also quite often used in bouquets of various forms. If you choose additional greens to create volume, then pay attention to the fern, eucalyptus, gypsophila.

    Plant preparation

    In order for the buds to delight you during a long wedding day, you should take care of them in advance. Frost-resistant plants - tulips, roses, carnations - on the day before the wedding, it is recommended to put them in the fridge, in the vegetable compartment.

    More delicate flowers that do not tolerate cold, should not be subjected to the test of cold. Pick up for them dark cool place without drafts. There they will survive best.

    Pour clean water into the vase, preferably rain or filtered at room temperature. Good help will be either specialized dressings for cut flowers, or granulated sugar or aspirin dissolved in water.

    Before installing in a vase, the stems are cut to 5 cm at an acute angle so that moisture is better absorbed. Cutting flowers is necessary only with a sharp knife or shears, blunt scissors do not fit. They only peremut vessels, and the buds will be even worse than before trimming.

    Here are some more tips from florists:

    • Roses, hydrangeas and chrysanthemums in front of a vase slightly split the stems. So they better absorb moisture,
    • Peonies or dahlias are recommended several times alternately dipped with the tip of the stem in boiling water and in cold water - this will help them to reanimate,
    • In no case do not sprinkle water on the delicate petals of lilies, tuberose or daffodils. Ugly stains may remain.

    Wedding decorations

    Very much depends on the specific bouquet and theme of the wedding.

    Rustic, village or ecotourism does not require decoration, it is enough to intercept the stems with ordinary twine. Vintage, chebbi-chic, retro, on the contrary, oblige the use of rhinestones, feathers, lace, decorative pendants.

    The easiest way to decorate is green. The leaves of the original form will add a composition of freshness and life.

    Making the legs will allow you to place the necessary accents. It can be wrapped with cloth, ribbons, pasted over with lace, beads, appliques.

    Interesting and seasonal decor. So, in the winter in the bouquet look great cones or spruce twigs, in the spring - "willow seals", in the summer - ears and dried flowers, and in the fall - berries and fruits.
