I was going to do them for centerpieces as well as bouquets, but when it came time to order them for a May wedding, the cost per stem ws ridiculously high. I love how they look and what you’ve described sounds pretty!

That sounds pretty! I’ve heard that hydrangeas are terribly fragile, though, and tend to wilt quickly. You could try silk flowers to prevent that from happening and to keep the costs down–afloral.com has some nice ones, from what I remember.

I am using them but not DIY. The good thing is they are so big that you don’t need a lot and you can mix them with a less expensive flower also in white.

@lucylu123: Hydrangeas can be expensive, but on the plus side you don’t need as many because they’re so large.

What Mrs. Grape said about them being fragile is also true. But I think they should be okay as long as you are keeping them in water all the time. 

Sam’s Club has these white ones for 52 bucks including shipping.

I used hydrangeas in my centerpieces, but they were from my parent’s garden, so they were free. They are also more teardrop shaped – not round like many that you see for sale. We added small roses that were ordered from 50 flowers also (these centerpieces were DIY) Hope this helps though 🙂

I have heard very good things about Costco and Sam’s Club hydrangeas. My florist friend actually suggested them because the price can’t be beat and they are good quality.  Only thing is, they are kind of delicate so just be aware of that if you buy them online. 

I think you can totally do these, the beauty of hydrangeas is you don’t have to do much to them and they look great!

I love hydrangeas, but they weren’t really in season in July.  They were there, but they looked kind of sad.  There were tons in August, and I’m pretty sure I bought ones that looked decent in May, but you may just want to double check?

I was going to do the same thing, but when I met with my florist (I was not going to DIY my bouquet) she told me she could do the centerpieces for $35.  We only have about 6 centerpieces, so it was worth it for me to not have to deal with another thing that weekend.

Yes, I’m pretty sure Sam’s Club and Costco can deliver to your house.
