Hydrangea Extravaganza!! (Google Search: Hydrangea Wedding)

Hello! This is going to take a little while to load. But here is the google search for hydrangea wedding. I feel like these flowers are traditional but have a fun flair to them (a bit like us). But they do seem a little restrictive in the type of bouquets you can do. And I know we already have our cake planned out but I like the ruffle cake so much-- I'd be willing to have two cakes.

And really. Two cakes? THAT would be a total travesty. I mean, a plethora of sweet icing, delicious filling and pretty pretty designs? That is just silly.

I love the idea of multiple colors for the bridesmaids.
And that wreath is so pretty.

These are more interesting than the plain ol' hydrangea ball.

These are spring flowers, and are currently in season. You can get them relatively cheap at the grower's market in larger cities. They also make great, simple, and chic table arrangements (the pink one above).

In other news, D and I are getting ready to get our power of attorney in line and I'm freaking out over all of these options. We contacted an LGBT lawyer in a bigger city and the prices for this crap is just ridiculous. I know how important it is. And the cost is honestly why we have been putting it off, and I just don't think we can anymore. But $200 per person per contract? Doesn't that just seem a little steep?

If any of you out there have your PoAs already done, I'd appreciate any sort of help.

I love the different colors for each bridesmaid - and I'm thinking hydrangeas, too.

Hydrangeas are so beautiful and easy to work with. We used them for my sister's bouquet, and added Dusty Miller leaves for a silvery green touch. There's a pic at the bottom of the post, if you scroll down. (It actually looked even prettier in person, but the angle is a little odd in this photo).

Like a reader above, I found your blog via A Practical Wedding, and I can't wait to read about your (and your fiance's) journey!

Anyway, I pretty much have a crush on hydrangeas, and that first cake just makes me fall in love.

Woah. That ruffle cake is awesome. And looks super delicious. I definitely vote for two cakes!

Okay here's my input on the flower ideas.

Cake #1-meh
Cake #2-sweet
Flower wreath-i can do that, no problem-green and blues with little purples?
First bouquet-easily done by wiring hyd's and adding mini callas or peony (if in season)

Are your bouquets matching? What about bringing in ideas from dresses? Are you going to have corresponding to your b-maids or all colors?
