I am going to DIY the bouquets. Winter theme wedding, colours are white and silver. I want all white boquets. First off, which is cheaper in early February- Hydrangeas or roses. And second, Would it be ok to make my boquet out of hydrangeas and roses, and my girls just hydrangeas. Im open to other pretty winter flowers too! Any ideas will be helpful 🙂

Hydrangeas are quite fragile so if you’re DIYing roses might be easier. Have you looked at ranunculus? They have a lovely look somewhat similar to roses but frillier.

Hydrangeas are quite fickle, though, workable. I had DIY flowers and had hydrangeas and roses together…I think they would be quite lovely together in all white! No idea what would be cheaper…in February, roses might be expensive because of Valentine’s Day.
Oh, and my bridesmaids had just hydrangeas, and they looked fine. 🙂

Hydrangeas are always going to be more expensive per stem, but they’re a more substantiantial flower, so you can make a large bouquet with fewer stems. They also need lots of water, so if you’re planning to use them for hand held bouquets, they may wilt faster than roses will.

If you are wanting something cheaper and easy to work with that imitates the look of hydrangeas I would suggest using some carnations. They are cute when bunched together:
