    Love the hydrangeas!  I am using them in my arrangements too so I may be a little bias!

    I like the hydrangeas better. They’re softer and more romantic looking. And you only need a few stems per centerpiece.

    I did my own wedding flowers with calla lilies/roses and my sister’s bridal shower with hydrangeas and a few roses for color- this is what i found:

    Calla lilies are usually more expensive, you have to buy more because they are smaller, and  are slightly more difficult to work with. P

    Hydrangeas are typically less expensive, you need less for a full arrangement because they’re so poofy, and pretty much idiot proof to arrange.

     Another thing to consider is you’re going to be making your arrangements the day before the wedding. How much time are you going to have? Calla lilies will take a little more effort. If you’re transporting these to a venue hydrangeas won’t move around as much as they are more compacted.
