Mad props! Nobody would ever believe that you got those flowers there. 🙂

(Our PW is a little run-down. I scared to go there, but I’ve been to nice ones before).

 

Great job! I love hydrangeas.

That looks great! I plan on doing hydrangeas of some sort and I’m glad to see it’s very possible to DIY them.

Looks good!  One thing I was warned with hydrangeas is that they can droop and brown.  So you might want to see how long your bouquet lasts.  I had some in my bouquet, that we also did DIY, and a few hours before the wedding, we cut the stems and then put clear nailpolish on the bottom to seal in the water.  Not sure if there’s any difference but they looked nice all day.  I was also reading somewhere you can spritz them with hairspray or something to help them look perky.  We didn’t do this but you might want to try it out if you’re practicing.

THEY LOOK SO GOOD!

If you do hydrangeas DIY before the wedding though, do them as last-minute as possible. My photographer personally warned me against DIY-ing hydrangeas as they are incredibly fragile and usually dry up and brown before the end of the wedding. I think waiting till the last minute would reduce this effect.

I made my friend’s hydrangea bouquet and it was a very hot day. They didn’t droop because I made sure they were in water until she went down the aisle. If you make a cute vase, you’ll always have a place to set it.
