A strong, robust large headed bloom that remains elegant and beautiful with a huge accent. Colours that have proved to be popular are pale blue and lilac for summer weddings used for bridal hand ties, centre pieces and top table garland.
In the Autumn months the richer green and deep burgundy compliment the season with a warm glow. They add a touch of vintage glamour and country chic with their fluffy pom pom texture. Their shape resembles a beating heart, so they symbolize perseverance and emotion.
Such stunning beauty and scent from these soft, angelic looking flowers. Couples love the whites and pale pinks that offer a soft appearance. They are known for representing values such as:
Beauty in all forms
People who bring honour to their entire family
Wealth and happiness
Romance and love
The season for peonies is usually late April through to early July. This depends on how soon spring starts and the heat of summer increases. They are at their peak and consistently available mid-May to the end of June. A lot of brides say that peonies are a must -have at their wedding, however if these are not available then an alternative is David Austin Patience or white O’Hara rose. For a romantic a lush cream white ‘Duchess to Nemour’ or ‘Shirley Temple’ Brides hand ties look amazing on their own, or with the addition of astilibe or stocks.
