Ideas For Hydrangea Wedding Flowers

(2 DIY projects and 14 bouquet picture ideas.)

Hydrangea wedding flowers in blue and white are delicate and captivating. The blooms seem to froth and float in the hands of those who carry them.

They are great on their own and need no other flowers or foliage for support.

A dozen or so blooms will make a simple but chic bridal bouquet.

For table arrangements use five or six blooms or combine with a few other flowers for a casual display.

Hydrangeas flower in summer and will last as a cut flower for four to six days.

These flowers are easy to make into bridal bouquets or table arrangements. If you have these growing in your garden you can make your own bouquet and it will be a real budget saver.

Make Your Own Hand-Tied Round Hydrangea Bridal Bouquet

Flowers And Essentials

  • Hydrangea wedding flowers your choice of color
  • Clippers
  • Twine, rubber bands
  • 4 to 8 pearl corsage pins
  • 3 yards (2.7 meters) of 2 inch (5cm) wide ribbon

Preparation And Assembly

  1. The stems of the hydrangea need to be conditioned. This is done by bending the stem about 1 inch (2.5cm) from the bottom until it splits. Scrape the bent area with a sharp knife in a dragging motion. This will remove some bark exposing the inner stem and allowing more water to enter the stem. Next fill a container with about 2 inches (5cm) of boiling water. Place the stems in the boiling water for a few minutes, then empty the water and fill the container with cold water. Let the flowers soak in the cold water for a least two hours if possible.
  2. Recut the stems under warm water when you are ready to assemble the bouquet.
  3. Gather the flowers in your hand. Start with the main flower; keep adding flowers until you have a full compact arrangement that fits comfortably in your hand. Bind the stems tightly with a piece of twine just below the flower heads, then bind with a rubber band about 3 inches (7.6cm) from the bottom. Recut the stems so that they are even and the length that you want.
  4. Start wrapping the bouquet with ribbon. Starting from about 1.5 inches (3.8cm) from the bottom. Fold the end of the ribbon under itself, then wrap up to the top of the stems covering the twine.
  5. Secure the ribbon in place with the corsage pins.
