Fresh and Classic Wedding Hydrangeas

The stylish cut hydrangea has long been discovered as part of a beautiful bouquet. Hydrangea is perfect as a wedding flower, symbolizing grace, beauty and abundance. This is because of the exuberant number of flowers and the generous dome form. The flower also symbolizes gratefulness and sincere feelings.

But what makes the hydrangea the perfect wedding flower?

There is a various range of colors. The most popular hydrangea colors used for weddings are white and pink, but they are also available in green, blue and purple. Hydrangeas work well on their own, but you can augment arrangements with other flowers, grasses and green leaves. Therefore, hydrangeas fit almost every wedding theme.

The hydrangea is such a flexible floral friend to all and can be combined with other cut flowers in endless varieties. White hydrangeas are beautifully together with eucalyptus to create a natural wedding theme whilst hydrangea arrangements in monochromatic pastel tones – particularly when they are paired with roses or peonies – up the ante for a truly romantic wedding theme.

Little flowers give impact at a wedding, for example in several small vases together or a big arch with other flowers. The big flower balls of the hydrangea consist of many tiny flowers – and this makes them wonderfully eyecatching as a solo bouquet.

Fresh and/or Classic

The range of cut hydrangeas consists of ‘Fresh’ and ‘Classic’ varieties. ‘Fresh’ refers to the fresh colors such as white, green, pink, blue and purple. If the hydrangea has gone through its color change, we call it ‘Classic’. Cut-flower hydrangeas are available year-round, with the best offer during the months of May to November. March to October are the best months for ‘Fresh’ flowers. After changing color, the ‘Classic’ flowers are available from June to the end of November.

Tip: Dry Your Bridal Hydrangea Bouquet

If the ‘Classic’ hydrangeas are used in the bridal bouquet, the bouquet can be dried afterward. If the flowers stop absorbing water and the leaves look limp, remove the leaves from the stem and empty the vase of water. Normally the flowers will then dry out completely and provide months of enjoyment.
