Everything You Need to Know About Hydrangeas

This morning the Internet is all abuzz with the news that Madonna hates hydrangeas. Madge was given a bouquet of hydrangeas by a fan at the Venice Film Festival, and her microphone picked up the following quote: "I absolutely loathe hydrangeas." For the record, we agree to disagree with the Material Girl on the subject: hydrangeas are perfectly pretty flowers that can be a great addition to your wedding decor. Here's four reasons to love hydrangeas:

1. THEY'RE AFFORDABLE.

Not only are hydrangea blossoms beautiful, they're also extremely voluminous, which means you don't need many flowers to fill up your bouquet or centrepiece.

2. THEY'RE COLOURFUL.

Hydrangeas don't just come in blue. They're also available in white, green, pink and lavender, so it's easy to find a colour that works with your decorating scheme.

3.THEY'RE MEANINGFUL.

Among other things, hydrangeas are meant to symbolize devotion. How perfect is that for your bridal bouquet?

4. THEY'RE VERSATILE.

Hydrangeas look great on their own (a big bunch in a low vase makes a nice centrepiece), but they also look lovely mixed with other flowers (see above).

Where do you stand on the hydrangea debate? Love them or hate them?
