I love the look of dried hydrangeas, especially in cool, antique-looking mismatched vases: Ithink it would look great with your old, regal-looking venue!

They think they’re perfect! Dry ones will work well. They wilt fast!

We used dried hydrangeas for the aisle arrangements and for a door wreath at my dd’s wedding (they were dried from my garden from the summer before), and then fresh garden hydrangeas for the table centerpieces.

@nanilani04:  I have to start by i love the venue, looked at it prior to deciding on a destination wedding! I am having a rustic wedding and planned on useing dried hydrangaes with some fresh flowers. I love the look of the two together. Also if your looking for a dried floral provider I found 30-40 stems for $52 here https://www.hammelmans.com/The owner has been super helpful!

Weddingmuse:  this is a really old thread but in cases you are still around, how did you dry yours?

How funny, I’m almost never around, but I saw your post today.

I experimented with a few different ways to dry the hydrangeas.  The one that worked the best was cutting the flowers, taking off the leaves, and putting them upright in tall vases or buckets with no water.  I put them in the garage that way for the winter.

 

Good luck with yours!

Did the color keep or did they turn brown? I love them both ways and trying to figure out flowers still. Thanks!
