Wedding Flowers: Hydrangeas

Picking a favorite flower is, I imagine, like trying to pick a favorite child. There are so many gorgeous wedding flowers out there that it can be hard to choose, but I have to say that Hydrangeas are quickly becoming a steady favorite of mine.

First of all, two Hydrangea stems is like an instant arrangement. I bought two white Hydrangea stems at Trader Joe’s the other day, cut the stems to about 6 inches long, then put them in a short circular glass vase and that was it. They looked gorgeous anywhere I put them, from the kitchen to the dining room, and they lasted OVER a week. They were also $6.99…which sounds crazy for two flowers, but considering how plush they are it would have taken at least a dozen roses to get the same effect (which are way more than $6.99).

Which is why Hydrangeas–produced from early spring to late autumn–are the perfect spring or summer wedding flowers. One or 2 hydrangea stems per vase is all you need to make a wedding centerpiece, which will definitely help your budget. An online search found that Sam’s Club had white hydrangeas (my favorite) priced at $69.98 for 30 stems (which is $2.30/stem. That’s one of the best deals I’ve found online, BTW). Click here to read more about how much wedding flowers cost.

Hydrangeas work beautifully in a centerpiece, bouquet, as part of a wedding arch, or even as a table runner (I don’t want to know how much that costs, but it’s gorgeous!). Below are a few of my favorite ways to use Hydrangeas, below. As you can see sometimes the simplest display is really the prettiest.
