15 Hydrangea Flower Arrangements for Your Wedding

When it comes to choosing wedding flowers, the decisions are often best left up to the professionals. Which blooms are currently in season? What flower types come in the same hues as those in your color palette? One floral variety that we see in many weddings is the hydrangea blossom! These blooming shrubs are in season from mid-spring through late-summer or mid-autumn – so, they're at their most fruitful during wedding season! The beautiful flowers come in a variety of colors, including white, green, blue, pink, and purple, making them complementary for most wedding colors.

The billowing blooms can be used as an accent in floral design, or as the primary variety! Whether you choose to have a hydrangea bouquet, or add the decorative florals to your ceremony arch, reception centerpieces, or even your wedding cake, hydrangea flower arrangements are sure to add a dose of glamour to your event. Combine hydrangeas with roses for a romantic design, or create a bountiful floral table runner by incorporating other large blooms such as dahlias or peonies. 

Take a look at 15 ways real brides incorporated hydrangeas into their wedding décor below, and visit our photo gallery to see other floral designs featuring this beautiful bloom.
