I love hydrangeas, so I never think it’s too many!

For me, there is no such thing as “too much” hydrangea!!  I had hydrangea bouquets (for myself and my girls) and centerpieces (along with a hydrangea cake topper!!) and I don’t think it was overkill.  I think it tied things together nicely ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree with you can never have to many hydrangeas! thats what I am doing as well, having mostly hydrangea since they are such large blooms and adding garden roses to get the nost for my money ๐Ÿ™‚

I love hydrangeas too, there is no such thing as too many. They are actually the only flower that we’re using in centerpieces. I feel like it’s simple and beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

Agree with all those above- you can never have too many! We used white hydrangeas alone for centerpieces & I thought it was simply & elegant.

My florist recommended against hydrangeas for the bouquets, since they tend to wilt quickly when they are out of water. So I’m just using them for my centerpieces.

That being said, I have a Catholic full mass at 3:30 and the reception starts at 7:00PM so my timeline is long (I’d like the bouquets to look decent through at least our entrance to the reception). They could work for bouquets maybe if your timeline is shorter.

Disclaimer: I’m going by my florist’s word on this, I have no personal experience with hydrangeas.

@kimm99:  I’ve heard a version of this from florists, but they stated they don’t use colored hydrangeas (blue/purple/green), but that they use the white hydrangea and dye them the desired color because white hydrangeas are sturdier. 

I’m going with roses and hydrangeas too…did a test run bouquet with white hydrangeas and roses and it held up well for a day out of water.  Love hydrangeas, and I can’t imagine there being too many of them — they aren’t super expensive, and they give a huge amount of coverage.  I’m using three sprigs for the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets and 10 roses and 5 sprays for my bouquet and 20 roses.

I love hydrangeas! I know there are mixed eviews on whether the hydrangea bouquets will hold up, but mine did not. My girls had white hydrangeas sprayed light pink and they fell apart pretty quickly due to the heat. However, they are cost effective. My suggestion would be if you use them, use them in the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet but not for yours so you know that it wll guarantee not wlt throughout all your pics!

nah not to much at all but you could  try adding some  bear grass and leaves to the hydrangeas

I love hydrangeas…but I usually like them mixed in with other blooms…I really wanted all roses but since they are so expensive I”m combining a few  with the hydrangeas…and also some gardenias.

I don’t think you can ever have too much hydrangeas! However, they don’t do well in humidity so think about the weather and talk to your florist before making the complete switch for boquets. We used them only as centerpieces for this reason and did all rose boquets.

ETA: Not sure if you are basing off an actual quote but I found that my florist would charge about the same price for a rose boquet or another flower because both were equally as labor intensive and roses (at least in ivory) are not actually so high maintnence from a florist perspective while some other blooms need special attention.
