Peonies have become “the” wedding flower, {and rightfully so, I might add!}. Not only are they absolutely beautiful when completely opened, but their smell should be bottled up into a perfume and sold to the highest bidder.

Afraid peonies won’t match your wedding? Have no fear! Peony shades range from pinks, to whites, to yellows, to reds, and to corals.There is sure to be a shade that will compliment your special day!

Keep in mind that peonies can be a pretty price depending on the season! To acquire them domestically, the best season is during May. You can get peonies year round, but depending on the country shipping them, it can cost a pretty penny for this gorgeous flower.
