Keeping it cool (quite literally), is huge for 2018 weddings. Couples are opting for cool, calming colors like dusty blue, navy and sage complemented by neutrals, whites and metallics.
However, naturally occurring flowers and fillers in this color palette can be a bit tricky. Our top picks to achieve the look include: dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus, blue thistle, anemones, silver brunia balls and succulents.
Dusty Miller: Comes in a few varieties with large leaf being the most popular. Dusty miller is extremely water sensitive and can be a bit flimsy, so it's best to make sure that when you are arranging you add stronger stems to support them.
Seeded Eucalyptus: The more "woodsy" of all eucalyptus varieties. It has a leaf shape and the color varies based on the time of the year. Seeded eucalyptus is super durable and has a long lifespan, since it is an actual tree branch.
Blue Thistle: This deep navy beauty is a great option for adding a pop of color. Its unique shape also adds great texture!
Anemones: Currently the most popular flower on the planet! Anemones feature delicate white petals and a deep navy center. These are quite fickle so be gentle.
Silver Brunia Balls: A unique branch containing several silver baubles or "balls." Silver brunia works great in blue and blush arrangements, and can break up the monotony of simple arrangements.
Succulents: This extremely popular house plant is also a beautiful way to tie in dusty blue to your bouquet. These can be secured to wooden sticks and added to any arrangement.
