If you grew up in the South, you’re probably familiar with peonies. These large, fragrant flowers have been staples in many yards and gardens for decades. Now, they’re coming back in a big way—and not just for growers and gardeners. Many brides and florists have chosen to incorporate peonies into their wedding flowers.
Peonies are known for being showy. That’s a quality that lends itself to wedding flower arrangements. These flowers have strong stems and will look great all day long. In fact, a cut peony can last about a week.
These flowers also come in a wide range of colors that are perfect for weddings. You may automatically think of the white or pink flowers that grew in your grandmother’s yard, which are perfect for the softer colors many brides use in the spring. But peonies also come in bolder colors like yellow, purple, and magenta that will hold their own in a summer wedding.
Peonies typically bloom in the spring and summer months. If you’re interested in having them in your bouquets or table arrangements, talk with your florist early so that they can be sure to get them for you.
