Roses, especially red roses, have long symbolised beauty and love in real life and fairy tales. Romantics have turned to this flower to express their passion and true love. Moreover, other colours, such as pink, are often inspired by the recipient's sweetness and elegance.

Hydrangea has a full bushy head and beautiful blue, burgundy, pink and purple shades. That is why in the Victorian language of flowers, this flower symbolises "vanity".
Hydrangea varieties are known to grow into bubble-gum pink or sky blue depending on the pH level of the soil it thrives in. Hence, you can choose the colour that you want, which oftentimes also depends on the season when it comes to picking your color palette with the leading lady as hydrangea. Regardless of colour, its scentless shrub flower makes a charming addition to your wedding bouquet.
