Hydrangeas are a bit of a love it or hate it flower – while they’re not typically seen as an obvious choice for your wedding day flowers, they’re big but also graceful, elegant and a great filler flower to use in your bouquet or other wedding day flowers. They have a limitless colour palette from bright pinks, purples and blue to muted pastels and white, and are versatile enough to use with more of your favourite flowers without compromising your wedding style.
Mix them up with roses, peonies, greenery or whatever else takes your fancy to create an elegantly modern bouquet, statement centrepieces or accents for a ceremony backdrop. They are a pretty motif that can be used throughout your wedding, adding a lovely detail to luxe stationery and table plans, hair accessories or as detail on your cake.
This inspiration board I have put together combines different ideas for using blue hydrangeas in your wedding – the tablescape shows blue hydrangeas as part of the main floral centrepiece which translates across to the detail on the cake, the stationery, ceremony backdrop and the bouquet. The pale blue shade of the hydrangea in the tablescape complements the bridesmaid dresses, shoes and grooms’ suit.
All of these ideas together offer a subtle nod to the humble hydrangea, while at the same time providing an elegant and sophisticated feel.
