So ive decided to have hydrangeas in my bouquet, we are getting married at the end of Sept, which it could still be very warm here in NC. My stepmom informed me that they have a tendancy to die and droop very quickly. I am now worried that my bouquet will not last through my wedding!
Any brides use hydrangeas? and did they last and for how long? Did you do anything special for them? I really dont wanna have to pick a different flower, so some reassurance would be nice =)

I had hydrangeas in my bouquet. The weather was around 70 degrees, and they held up fine.

I had hydrangeas in my bouquet. I got married in July in South GA – it was in the 90s, my bouquet was fine all day. I took pictures during the afternoon and after the ceremony.

I used hydrangeas in my bouquet as well as the BM’s bouquets and they were fine. Our wedding was in Wisconsin in the middle of July and the temps were in the 90s with high humidity on the day of our wedding – we had no problems with the flowers.
We kept them in water until it was time to take pictures (which we did before the ceremony) so they were out for about 90 minutes. We then had 30 minutes before the ceremony started so we popped them back in their vases and they were perfect for the ceremony – no drooping, no turning brown, or anything like that. After the ceremony, we put our bouquets in vases on the head table that had been set up ahead of time. They looked great for the entire day/evening and we had no problems.
I had similar worries to you and almost changed flowers at the last minute but I’m glad I didn’t. Just put them in water whenever you’re not carrying them and they will be fine.

I used a lot of hydrangeas in my floral arrangements including in my bouquet and 1 of my bms. They were just fine for my winter wedding (60-70s), we didn’t do anything special with them.

Yes I used primarily hydrangeas and they were perfect! We made the bouquet and actually all the centerpieces which were mostly hydrangeas, the night before the wedding and everything lasted a long time! Just be sure to follow the instructions on watering and trimming the stems and youll be fine 🙂

My bridesmaids had hydrangeas in their bouquets, and there were hydrangeas in the two, large, altar arrangements at my outdoor, May 22 wedding. They held up beautifully in the 96 degree heat. In fact, the ONLY flowers that survived from my wedding were some hydrangeas. They dried perfectly, and I have them in a vase in my dining room.
