I like the idea of using the hydrangeas for their girls as well – using the same flower in both will keep the look cohisive.  hydrangea are heat sensitive and should be keep in a water tube if you’re using them in a bouquet.  they pair well with tulips, hyacinth, roses, garden roses, peonies. 

For example, for your bouquet: blue hydrangeas and white garden roses.

for the girls: white hydrangeas and yellow tulips and yellow garden roses.

the hydrangeas are great to use as a base for flowers.  insert the other stems through the hydrangea blooms to creat a “round” effect.

Why not yellow lilies? Or daffodils?

I thought of suggesting dafodils as well, but if you want a “round” looking bouquet, they arent the  best shape.

The base of my bouquest is going to be hydrangea, and I’ve got roses, calla lillies, ranunculus, and dahlia’s on my list to go with them.  What ends up in there will just depend on how the flowers look when the florist gets his order in.

Here’s my bouquet.  It is a hydranga base with peonies, garden roses, and dahlias.

Are you and I having the same thought process? 🙂

I’m struggling with the same thing too, and blogged about it yesterday. I think my solution is to use the hydrangeas that have blooms that are white in the middle, but blue on the tips. I’ll mix sweet peas into my bouquet to add interest and color variation.

My Maid/Matron of Honor (only attendant) will wear a blue dress and carry a bouquet of white hydrangeas and sweet peas. Bouts will be sweet peas.

I worried that the white flowers on a white (ish) dress would be difficult to photograph. I asked my photographer, and she said we could work around it, but a white bouquet definately woudln’t POP in the photos.

I had an absolutely adorable bouquet from my birthday from one of my bridesmaids — hydrangeas and white roses.  Absolutely gorgeous, and I think I’ll be using it for my wedding flowers.

I’d use dahlias, lisianthus and ranunculus.
