LOVE that first pic, so cute!

Hydranges are so pretty and never go out of style. My only suggestion is that I read on weddingbee Pro that they can get droopy fast, so make sure they all stay heavily hydrated before the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

Hydrangeas are going to be the base of my bouquet.  They will also appear in a few of the centerpieces.  If you like them, then go for it!

I love hydrangeas! I am going to do blue and white for my centerpieces and possibly bouquet as well ๐Ÿ™‚ A lot like the first pic posted but in square vases instead of mason jars.

I am not really into flowers and don’t have a favorite except a requirement for a really pretty arrangement. I will also say that from my childhood I have hated hydrangeas after pruning them every year for my mom.  BUT in my wedding planning search I have found my love of hydrangeas.  They are gorgeous and full and have great color and I could go on and on.  I am def using them and combining with curly willow similar to pic in the bottom left of your inspiration board.  Those bouquets you found are really pretty.

I used silk hydrangeas for centerpieces and chapel decorations. I loved it! I almost went for real hydrangeas for bouquets until I realize that they wilt easily and that I’ll need the flowers out of water for a long time for photography purposes.

I would just say that in terms of real hydrangea, make sure your florists are experienced in methods of picking, cutting, and preparing specifically for hydrangeas. Don’t expose them to heat and sun and put them in water as much as possible. Also, real hydrangeas are toxic so shouldn’t make contact with your cake.

I was the Maid/Matron of Honor for a friend who used hydrangeas in lavender and blue shades…We made her bouquet using silk hydrangea and orchids, we also added some crystals….

My friend got married last year and she used mostly blue hydrangeas.  They looked incredible!  Something about them is just so elegant and romantic.  Plus she has blue eyes and they really made her eyes stand out in photos.

I love the hydrangeas and the inspiration board. The colors are beautiful together. We’re using light blue ones for my bouquet…all blue, all hydrangeas. And the same for the centerpieces. And beacause our colors are blue and yellow we will have lemon slices in the vases. ๐Ÿ™‚
