Roses are red; violets are blue. But hydrangea wedding centerpieces come in almost every color of the rainbow. This versatile bloom is stealing the spotlight at weddings across the country, and it’s not hard to see why.
As renowned Event Planner Sally Arnold of Sally Arnold Events tells us, “Hydrangea are an absolute classic. Using hydrangea is an instant way to guarantee your reception will have a soft and romantic feel.” She goes on to say, “Hydrangea blooms are so simple and elegant while having loads of lush impact.”
So How Do I Arrange My Hydrangea Wedding Centerpieces?
Boasting a range of colors and sizes, hydrangea centerpieces can easily evoke any wedding theme or style. Going for a classic vibe? Try white hydrangea clusters with flecks of greenery. Looking for something bold and unforgettable? Consider blue hydrangea wreaths with crystal embellishments. There’s no limit to the imagination with this versatile flower.
Moreover, there are many unique ways to weave hydrangea into the rest of wedding celebration — including the ceremony. Sally shares, “We love the look of clusters of tall, clear glass cylinder trios of different heights, topped with just hydrangea. This is a simple, elegant, and impactful way to decorate down the aisle with décor that can be repurposed for the reception.”

But wait, there’s more. “Hydrangea are a great way to get a lot of show from a single bloom, and they can be used to decorate almost anywhere in a celebration,” says Sally.
Many elements go into creating the wedding of our dreams, starting with the perfect centerpiece by an esteemed décor company. These 14 hydrangea wedding centerpieces have us falling in love with the infinite potential of floral décor.
