Wedding bouquet of peonies

Dur­ing a wed­ding, there are many tra­di­tions that lim­it peo­ple a lit­tle in choos­ing acces­sories and decor. One of the few options to exper­i­ment with is the bridal bou­quet. Here you can let your imag­i­na­tion run wild and use com­plex shapes and out­landish flow­ers. Among the most spec­tac­u­lar com­po­si­tions, one can sin­gle out a wed­ding bou­quet of peonies.

Tra­di­tion­al­ly, these col­ors are rarely used in bridal bou­quets, as they have strong com­pe­ti­tion from ros­es, callas, and orchids. How­ev­er, skilled florists are able to cre­ate inter­est­ing com­po­si­tions that amaze with their beau­ti­ful shape and ele­gance. Lush buds attract with their fra­grance, del­i­cate petals form the thinnest fringe that shim­mers in the sun like silk. The bou­quet looks spec­tac­u­lar with a fluffy dress, empha­siz­ing the sky-high set.

Flower mean­ing

Peony blooms in spring and sum­mer and has large lush buds. Flower col­or ranges from dark bur­gundy to white. Depend­ing on the loca­tion and shape of the petals, flow­ers are divid­ed into ane­mic, dou­ble and non-dou­ble. For a wed­ding bou­quet, ter­ry peonies are more often used, as they have fuller buds that stand for a long time in the cut.

In the lan­guage of flow­ers, peony means pros­per­i­ty and good health. Tra­di­tion­al­ly, this flower rep­re­sents the twelfth wed­ding anniver­sary (Nick­el Wed­ding). Peony is per­fect­ly com­bined with large flow­ers: ros­es, freesias and wild­flow­ers.

Such dif­fer­ent bou­quets

Peonies attract brides not only with their splen­dor, which is asso­ci­at­ed with a puffy dress and veil, but also with their del­i­cate col­ors. Here are beau­ti­ful pas­tel shades that are some­times absent from oth­er col­ors. Del­i­cate pink, beige, cream, lilac and cap­ti­vat­ing white — these col­ors are per­fect for a wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion. Let’s try to ana­lyze the most suc­cess­ful options:

  1. Wed­ding bou­quet of white peonies. It sym­bol­izes ten­der­ness and inno­cence. Pairs well with the white bridal gown. The bou­quet can be sup­ple­ment­ed with con­trast­ing hydrangea inserts and sea­soned with pit­tospo­rum leaves. You can also stop at a mono bou­quet.
  2. Wed­ding bou­quet of red peonies. It will become a strong accent in the image of the bride and will def­i­nite­ly attract atten­tion. The bou­quet can be sup­ple­ment­ed with spray ros­es and even berries. You can also use red accents in the images: a red rib­bon on the bride’s dress, the groom’s scar­let bou­ton­niere, bright lip­stick — all this will make the pic­ture more har­mo­nious.
  3. Bou­quet of pas­tel peonies. Here you can use flow­ers of dif­fer­ent shades, but keep in mind that they are all with­in the pas­tel col­or range. A wed­ding bou­quet of pink or yel­low­ish peonies will resem­ble an airy deli­cious cake that you just want to eat.
  4. Bou­quet with addi­tions. As men­tioned above, peonies are per­fect­ly com­bined with oth­er large flow­ers. An exquis­ite wed­ding bou­quet will come from a duet of peony and rose. It is bet­ter not to use small flow­ers, as they will be lost against the back­drop of a lux­u­ri­ous large peony.

The bridal bou­quet of peonies will also stand out for its shape. When using small peonies, you can make a clas­sic Bie­der­meier, which con­sists of flow­ers placed in a cir­cle. Such a com­po­si­tion is col­lect­ed on its own stems or in a port bou­quet. From large inflo­res­cences, spher­i­cal bou­quets are col­lect­ed that hold their shapes well. Falling and ver­ti­cal bou­quets with peonies will not work, as they are too large and have thick, fleshy stems.

As you can see, from a spring flower famil­iar to every­one, you can cre­ate exquis­ite wed­ding com­po­si­tions that amaze with their ten­der­ness and beau­ty.
