Our wedding colors were blue, orange and grey. I wanted the flowers to be the "pop" of orange in our centerpieces and along the aisle, and I knew that I wanted to do my own centerpieces and decor (because I'm very frugal).
These orange hydrangeas were PERFECT and exactly what I was looking for! They bloomed beautifully and lasted so long! I got them delivered Wednesday and my wedding was Friday. Wednesday night, we placed each stem (after it had been cut) into a wine bottle with some water. Thursday afternoon, we delivered them all (pre-made in wine bottles) to our venue. I told the venue to add water Friday morning, and that was it!
So easy and manageable!! I was super worried that they would be all smashed when delivered or wouldn't last through the entire wedding. The flowers were beautiful when received, not smashed AT ALL, and their blooms grew and became much larger when they were put in water and separated from each other. And the flowers lasted over a week after the wedding! They easily lasted 10 days.
