Okay, this link is not so helpful right now because it says that they are sold out, but you can sign up for alerts when they are restocked. 

This one has great prices, but you have to buy a lot. I don’t know how many you need. 

I don’t know the reputation of either of these places, but I know that we will be ordering tulle for our patio from the first place. The prices are great, as long as they have what you want. 

I’m sorry if this wasn’t helpful!

Would this page be of any help? I didn’t look too closely at it. Also not sure if they ship to Canada. I’m trying to think of anywhere in Canada that would have dried hydrangeas…maybe if you contacted your florist?

You could also dry them yourself with silica or something. I have never done it but I have heard of it?

Hydrangeas grow almost everywhere in Canada. Can you check out the framer’s markets in your area?  See who is selling them. Or, go for a drive in the country. Make contact with a farmer who will agree to cut a special order.

This video tells you what you need to do to preserve the color.

@Snow00774:  Fill up those vases with sand, makes them less likely to tip over, cut the lavender into shorter sprigs, then use 3 to 5 per centerpiece.

Or, if you have enough vases use the lavender in single stems and use more vases.

Or, use those vases for the hydrangea and find a different style for the lavender.

I had hydrangeas in my wedding bouquet, and dried them myself afterward with silica sand.

@Snow00774:  What containers are you using for the hydrangea for the ceremony?

The purpose of the video link was to make you aware that you had to add the preservative if you want to maintain the color.

No offense taken, just wanted to make sure you didn’t miss the part about the preservative.

I think the lavender would look great in little short jars like this if you wanted to use those milk glass vases for the hydrangea
