It is possible that this is my favorite time of year due solely to the peony-factor. Peonies are everywhere. As recently as two weeks ago, they were blooming all across Nashville. Peonies are among my favorite flowers to use for my wedding floral designs. In addition to their tremendous beauty, their size is perfect for filling out bouquets. The variety of color is vast and includes various shades of pink, white, purple, red and coral.
However, if you are looking for a peony alternative for a late spring/early summer wedding, let me suggest garden roses. Garden roses offer a similar effect and are technically in season for much longer than peonies. But all we are saying is give peonies a chance.
