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.
Imagine coats of white, muted bridesmaids dresses and gleams of breathtaking flowers. Your statement down the isle is not only your gorgeous dress selection but also that immaculate bouquet that you are carrying. When selecting your bouquet of flowers remember to compliment colors throughout your wedding and your ceremony location. If you are having an outside affair, mimic the greens in your surroundings. If your having an indoor ceremony, mimic the stained glass of your church windows or the light that will replecate off the beading and lace of your gown. Bright yellows, lovely pinks and beautiful reds. These pops of color will radiate through all of your images and be captured for years to come. This is what will make these moments so very breathtaking…. besides you, the bride herself.
