If you are planning a wedding with a blue color scheme, you know there are a limited number of blue flowers to select from…but apparently that’s not keeping demand down for blue silk flowers. In the first three months of this year, www.SilkBouquets.co.uk reports a 350% increase for orders from soon-to-be-wed couples looking specifically for fresh, vibrant blue blooms.
According to the UK-based company, last year’s demand was highest for cream color flowers but this year blue is coming in with a bang. According to Cathy Frith of SilkBouquets.co.uk, “the interest in blue colour schemes has come as a complete surprise to us, In January we sat down and designed a new range of products, one of which was the Blue and Silver Hydrangea Bridal Shower. Amazingly it started to get enquiries straight away! By the end of January we had exhausted the entire stock of component items such as the flowers, leaves and other items that are used to make this range of silk wedding flowers. Fortunately we have been able to secure a significant amount of stock which we hope will last until the end of this year.”
Along with bouquets, the company is also seeing a demand for Blue and Silver Wrist Corsages, Blue and Silver Lapel Corsages, matching table decorations, pew ends, wedding car decorations, bridesmaid posies and buttonholes…all in blue!
