I think it would look lovely. The only thing I would be worried about is how well the hydrangea will hold. I wanted it in my bouquet, but the more I read about it the more hesitant I get.

@sfp:  I like the idea of mixing the two together.

Maybe something like this….just replace the other flowers with hydrangea.

@sfp:  Ok maybe the florist can do a trial run with you….hard to envision it bc I haven’t seen anything like that before

@sfp: No, not falling off. But hydrangea seems to wilt quickly and with the thick flower heads that means that everything sort of drops really noticeably. However, if you have a florist doing it she might be able to come up with a solution to this.

And if you’re curious what it will look like, why don’t you do a trial this spring? Hydrangeas tend to be fairly well priced and there will be tons of lavender in the garden centres. You could just buy a few plants and make a test bouquet.

@sfp: Glad I could help! You could even try a few different versions – one that’s just as is, one where you use floral water tubes for the hydrangea and one where you use wet floral foam. Then you get an idea of what’s most durable – oh and crank up the heat so that it’s around the temperature you’ll expect for your wedding day. 🙂

@sfp:  Sorry my phone deleted everything I wrote. Well I actually like the idea of mixing the two. I love both of these flowers as well. I can sorta picture it in my head and I think it’ll be really unique yet beautiful. The colors will compliment each other IMO. I can see why you wouldn’t want to have random lavenders sticking out from everywhere, you’re looking for something more uniformed right? Maybe ask your flortist to do a mock up for you that way you can see how it looks in real life. I’ll try looking for pics for you.
