Heavenly hydrangeas

Heavenly hydrangeas bouquet

Weddings and hydrangeas go together beautifully.  Summer is the season when hydrangeas grow abundantly in Great Britain. For DIY brides there couldn’t be a better flower to choose.

Purple and red lushness

This beautiful bouquet uses a mixture of locally grown flowers in lush purple and red tones. You could of course opt for a more traditional wedding colour to beautiful effect such as pretty pale pink or gorgeous lilac and pale blue.

Tip to keep them fresh

Cut them at least 12 hours before use and give them a good long drink in a cool place.

This traditional pale pink and white summer offering was for a bride who loved the mixture of roses, baby’s breath and hydrangeas for her simple country wedding. Ideal for hanging on a rustic church gate or at a venue surrounding a chunky church candle.

    I love the idea of creating a hydrangea circle and a lovely alternative to putting flowers in vases.

    The idea that you can see all the flowers ‘faces’ appeals to me.

    Thank you for sharing

    I think I have totally mesesd up my vanilla strawberry hydrangea (I have about 30). The branches were to weak to hold the few blooms I got, so I kept cutting them. Now some branches hang down and some do not. I have no idea what to do at this point. Have I totally ruined them?
