Blue and Green Wedding Flowers
Blue is a cool color, it is mellow and tends to recede. The color green is actually a variation of blue, blue mixes with yellow to create green. It too is a cool color on the color wheel.
Paired together, a blue and green wedding is calm, soothing and rich in deep colors. Blue is the more classic of the two hues and dominates over green, whether both are used in color choices for flowers or one is picked up in accents like ribbon.

Blue and Pink Wedding Flowers
The color combination of blue and pink is the opposite of our last choice. Pink is a warm color, created from mixing red with white. Pink is warm and radiates energy.
While blue with it’s strong nature still presides over pink they both get attention in this color pairing. The two play off of each other giving energy and life to both blue’s rich nature and pink’s radiant nature. Typically pinks will be picked up in flower choices while blues can be added to with accenting blooms, it also works for a fabulous ribbon color choice.

Another vivid color pairing is blue and orange. The two colors are opposite of each other on the color wheel, this is called complementary colors. Used together these types of colors bounce off of one another for a bold pop of color.
Anyone looking for a color rich and playful wedding can think about this color combination. Dark blue or navy are more traditional, sophisticated hues perhaps picked up in bridesmaid dresses, orange is a bold, yet playful pop of colors that would work well in wedding flower bouquets. The bride’s wedding flower bouquet can pick up blue trends from the bridesmaid’s dressed in a bouquet ribbon wrap.
One color, blue. Paired with three different color choices can create three completely different looks. When planning your wedding colors it is a good idea to ponder how each color will interact with one another to center in on the right wedding color choices.
