I used a lot of hydrangeas – bridesmaids bouquets, ceremony arrangements, and centerpieces. They looked great all day/night and we didn’t do anything special, but our wedding was in November so it wasn’t really hot – maybe that helped?

I was in a wedding two weeks ago where they used hydrangeas in the bridesmaids bouquets and the centerpieces. The centerpieces looked fantastic at the end of the night because they were in water. By the end of the ceremony I had to make sure I held my bouquet a certain way to hide the wilting flowers on the one side. By the end of the night all the the bouquets looked prety bad.

Hm, we are using hydrangeas in our bouquets. My florist just said to put them in water after the reception and they should be fine. We’re getting married in August in PA, so it will likely be very hot.

We used a lot of hydrangeas, in our center pieces and in my bouquet and one of my bm’s. They held up fine. I didn’t notice them wilted at the end of the night. But we did get married in winter so there was no heat factor.

It was 90+ for our wedding and the hydrangeas in mine and my MOH’s boquets lasted all night. So did the centerpieces. BUT – we had them in water whenever we weren’t taking pictures. The florist did warn us about that, and I’m keenly aware of it since I have hydrangeas in my backyard. They wilt quickly but do come back when they have water as long as they haven’t dried out.
