Graceful, voluminous and hardy, hydrangeas are a top floral choice for weddings. In addition to their natural beauty, in the romantic language of flowers, hydrangeas are associated with heartfelt emotion and gratitude for understanding.
With its big, bushy head and intense colors, a stem or two of this moderately priced, scentless shrub flower helps fill out arrangements and bouquets. Hydrangea is most popular in shades of bubble-gum pink, white, and sky blue.
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.
Including these blossoms in your special day makes a poignant statement about the strong bond you and your spouse share and how thankful you are for one another.
