These fluffy blooms may be one of the hallmarks of summer, but that doesn't mean they don't look perfectly pretty in bridal bouquets all year long.
It should come as little surprise that many brides love including fluffy hydrangeas in their big day bouquet. Not only is this round bloom a showstopper on its own or mixed with other petals, it's also super affordable in summer months when the colorful flowers are in season. While the out-of-season cost does rise, with such a full shape, you'll need fewer stems to make a major statement.
But cost isn't the only reason we love hydrangeas. Including these blooms, which are comprised of clusters of tightly packed petals, in your bouquet makes for a truly stunning arrangement. Although they're certainly synonymous with seaside getaways, you'll be surprised how versatile a hydrangea bouquet is. Whether you're having beachy I do's or a more formal, modern ceremony, you can make these big flowers part of your wedding day style.
For a garden-inspired celebration, consider a lush bouquet of hydrangeas mixed with other beloved bridal blooms, like peonies and Queen Anne's lace. Planning a more classic ceremony and reception? A mix of pale green and white hydrangeas look perfectly put together when paired with bright foliage. And for formal festivities, you can't go wrong by mixing hydrangeas with peonies, roses, and dusty miller. Of course, for a nautical bash, nothing will beat a beachy blue bundle of these pretty petals.
With countless varieties and colors of hydrangeas available, you can work with your florist to create a look you absolutely love. Here, we're highlighting 15 of our favorite bouquets, all packed with hydrangeas! Click through to see gorgeous floral inspiration.
