This is my inspiration:
Orchids can be pricy and I’m trying to cut corners. I like the hydrangea flower. Would it look weird if I got a large enough vase so it doesn’t look squashed? What are some other flowers I can use instead? I like the idea of having lots of little candles around the larger centerpiece. Thanks!

I had hydrangeas in my water submerged centerpieces. They love water so being in water is even better.

Do you have a picture of it you can share?

I just read up on these, and posted about them for someone ele 🙂
You can use any flower that doesnt have too much pollen, and thick leaves.
Like roses, daisies, tulips should work (you might have to remove the centers)

If you get high quality silk flowers, you can pick whatever flowers you want. Your guests wouldn’t be able to touch/smell them so they probably couldn’t tell. I haven’t done this though, so it’s just a thought. 🙂
The PP’s gave great advice for using real flowers though – definitely look into removing the centers from a lot of fresh flowers so the pollen doesn’t get into the water and discolor it.

any flower can be submerged but watch for flowers with really thin petals and ones with lots of pollen unless you want the vase to be filled with the color of the pollen.
Flowering branches also look great.

tulips & calla lilies look amazing!
if you go with silk flowers, make sure you do a trial run. i did trials with our fuschia silk orchids and they bled the first time.

I am thinking of going with these and my florist is going to work with me to see what works best since I didn’t want to go with orchids. We are considering calla lilllies, stargazer lillies or gladiolis.

Gardenias or open rosebuds
