Don't Hate the Flower,
Hate the Presentation

When we found out that Madonna loathes hydrangeas we decided to ask our Facebook and Twitter followers which flowers are on their "loathe" lists. The most hated-on blooms? Roses were by far the least popular, followed by chrysanthemums, carnations, lilies (particularly stargazer lilies), sunflowers, and daisies. While we've definitely seen our fair share of not-so-great arrangements featuring all of these flowers, we've also seen them look pretty amazing when in the hands of a talented florist. In the hopes of changing your mind, here are two of our favorite arrangements showcasing those unpopular blooms. And for more wedding flower ideas, check out our Wedding Flower Gallery. —Malabi Deb
