One of the aspects we love most about what we do for our clients is custom floral design. I love the full look of peonies. They are incredibly elegant they make for beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces. The Knot posted a few of these favorites, so here are a few of ours!
|Ivory bouquet of white peonies with pops of green filler|
|Classic and romantic bridal bouquet of white peonies with the stems exposed|
|Soft bridal bouquet of white peonies that aren’t fully opened, so casually elegant|
|These would make beautiful bridesmaids bouquets against soft pink dresses. These posies are made up of peonies in shades of light and hot pink, mini hydrangea for a hint of mint green.|
|For a summer bridal bouquet, mix in some pops of deep yellow just like this gorgeous bouquet filled with orchids, ranunculus and peonies wrapped in black and white stripped ribbon.|
|This large bouquet is filled with light pink and white peonies. Great for a bride’s bouquet, however, be careful not to get your bouquet too big. It will be uncomfortably heavy to hold during the ceremony, and it could overshadow your dress.|
|To accompany the bride’s bouquet above, this would be a fabulous bouquet for the bridesmaids! Go heavier on the pinks and add pops of white peonies.|
|I love these orchids… I had these in my bouquet when I got married and I just think they are beautiful. This is a beautiful bouquet for summer or a beach wedding filled with orchids, garden roses, peonies and hydrangea accented with crystals and pearls.|
|What a fresh centerpiece! These glass cylinders make a short centerpiece which is great for guests to be able to converse over dinner. These centerpieces are lined with ti leaves and filled with light pink peonies, ranunculus, garden roses and accented with green ferns. I don’t typically like to use fears as filler, but they are perfect for this pieces!|
|If your venue has low ceilings, always opt for shorter centerpieces, however, make them bright and dramatic! These classic cube vases are filled with hot pink peonies, light pink cymbidium orchids and accented with large banana leaves.|
|LOVE LOVE LOVE! This light pink peony boutonniere is accented with lily grass and it pops so beautifully against this groom’s pinstripe suit! Another option would be to make the groom’s boutonniere a white peonies, then accent with the groomsmen wearing pink peonies.|
Peonies are prime in June, so for you summer brides out there, I hope you got some great inspiration for beautiful peonies to use in your ceremony and reception! Happy Planning!
