We are totally smitten with peony wedding bouquets and these beauties we have rounded up are just irresistible. As most florists will confirm, the peony is probably one of the most sought after wedding flower and shows no sign in waning in popularity, no surprises here. The peony is such a romantic blousy bloom which starts off as a pea size bud but has layers of delicate petals that just keep opening to create a huge flower head. Not to mention that many varieties are give off a lovely fragrance.
It is worth noting that these beautiful blooms only have a short season in the UK from April to June, putting them at a premium outside of these months. It’s not surprising these blooms are requested all year round but always check with your florist first with regards availability.

Pastel Coloured Peony bouquets
Alternatively the soft pastel shades below look incredible teamed with lilac, which gives such a lovely fragrance too. We love how no two wedding peony bouquets look the same, with the flowers either in bud or at various stages of opening they offer a different look as they go. Sometimes if you blink peonies have opened they are very reactive to direct sunlight.
