    If you had a summer wedding I’d vote hydrangea, but I think for October I’d lean towards the calla lilies.  They’re both pretty, but hydrangea just feels like June/July/August to me.

    I am doing hydrangeas at my wedding because you get a lot of bang for your buck.  How flower savy are you?  I’ve heard that hydrangeas are rather tempermental and can not look great if they don’t have the right amount of water?  I’d look into how easy each flower is to take care of yourself before you make the decision.  I was going to DIY through fiftyflowers but wound up chickening out and asking my florist to do the arrangements as well because I’m not flower savy.  I do agree with BunnyBride that calla lillies seem for “fall.”

    I vote hydrangea. You get way more bang for your buck IMO.

    I think Hydrangia look so elegant.  And I think they are more affordable.

    Definitely hydrangeas – they are so much more beautiful IMO than calalillies!

    @FallBride100111: A good friend of mine did the same thing for her centerpieces ( using hydrangeas) and hung crystals from the branches of the curly willow.  It was stunning & very easy to assemble…I would know, I did about 20 of them in the hour and a half before the wedding. lol

    I usually love calla lilies, but fr this particular idea I like the hydrangeas, The calla lilies look too bare to me

    I voted Hydrangea. I love that they look so much more voluptuous. And they are actually in season for September… so technically a fall flower 🙂

    I’ll be using them for my Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets and in mine as well, and the sprays I will have on the alter of the church.
