Romantic Wedding Flowers: Peonies

One of my all time favorite flowers are Peonies and who wouldn’t love this big beautiful flower? It is no surprise that peonies are one of the most popular flowers for bridal bouquets.

If you are a girly girl like me, peonies are the ultimate bridal flower.  This fluffy, ultra romantic flower looks amazing by itself or paired with other types of flowers.  In my opinion, it is the ultimate in classic beauty and vintage style.

One of the best thing about Peonies are their size.  Just a couple of stems of Peonies can make a stunning centerpiece.

Brides take note….. these classic flowers are mostly available in late March/early April through July so if you want these flowers you have a small window to get married! Many brides have been known to plan their weddings in these months for the sole purpose of using this coveted flower.

Another great characteristic of the Peony is the different looks one flower can give.  You can leave the bloom closed, partly open or open all the way to give a totally different look to your bouquet.

And peonies come in many different colors like pink, fuchsia, lilac and of course classic white.
