Get the Look: Blue Hydrangea Wedding

Blue hydrangeas are a classic and popular wedding flower. These garden stems are perfect for a summer wedding,  as they act as a gorgeous and natural accent, but don’t dominate the entire ceremony.

Assembling a blue hydrangea wedding is also incredibly easy. At the very least,  you just need several hydrangea bushes, stem cutters, floral tape, large containers, and finishing ribbon for the bouquet wrap. If you want to create a more full and diverse look, you can also add in some assorted greenery or white/cream stems, such as a rose.

The visual below shows you just how easy it is to assemble your own blue hydrangea wedding bouquet.

Blue Hydrangea Wedding  - Do It Yourself

I also fell in love with this wedding centerpiece pictured below. This is great for all you DIY brides who cannot get enough blue. The mason jars add a simple rustic touch and the blue hydrangeas definitely complete the look.

You can recreate this look by trimming off the stems from our blue hydrangea bush, and placing them in one of our blue mason jars. If you want to change it up a bit, scatter a couple mason jars around the event with white hydrangeas as well.
