The perfect wedding flower, hydrangeas, are sure to please! Hydrangeas are luxurious and romantic, adding texture and density to any floral arrangement. Their voluminous petal structures have many small blooms clustered together to form one large flower. Dark lush foliage frames each bloom making this a versatile flower. Great for use in bouquets, centerpieces, floral arches, and so much more! They can be paired with just about anything from roses to eucalyptus to gerbera daisies. The possibilities are endless!

Hydrangea naturally comes in a variety of colors, the most popular being white. They also will appear in light blue, green, purple, pink, antique and even blush. White blooms can be spray-tinted and are available to those who are looking for a color not found in nature such as yellow or orange.

Their bloom sizes are quite large, making them very cost effective for a DIY bride! With a bloom size ranging from 4 to 6 inches wides, you will need far fewer stems than other smaller flowers. Stem lengths can range from 24 to 28 inches long but can be cut to meet anyone’s needs. Mini green hydrangeas are perfect for those who wish to have smaller blooms. Their size can vary between 3 to 4 inches wide and a stem length of 24 to 28 inches.
