@SLuce021:  I love the pots filled with hydrangeas, they are really pretty. We used the flowers from our ceremony to decorate the third location of our venue (dance party and cake cutting location).

My only two concerns would be that hydrangeas are far more expensive than baby’s breath ($4-5 customer cost a stem right now) and hydrangeas wilt very easily in heat if your florist is not familiar with how to properly treat them to stay fresh. The last thing you want is wilting flowers on your table.

@SLuce021:  What are your wedding colors?

For me, the charm of those Ikea containers is the resemblance to white lace at the top edge.

I think they will look fine as a container for a hydrangea plant as long as the plant pot fits down inside the Ikea pot far enough so that the blooms are right at the top edge . If there is stem showing it might look a bit gangly.

@SLuce021:  I think that will be really pretty. Just a thought – I’m not sure what region your from – will it be hot where you’re getting married in late September? Because if so, the hydrangeas may wilt. I originally wanted my BMs to carry hydrangeas in their bouquets but my florist said once they’re in the heat they’ll start wilting and won’t hold up very well. Depending on where you live, this might be something to think about.
