Bridal bouquet of peonies
comparable in importance to the choice of dress. Choosing flowers for a bouquet, turn your attention to the peony. This flower is considered a symbol of wealth and prosperity, and in some countries even legends are associated with it, which are prescribed to be sure to use it at a wedding. Thus, in ancient Rome, peonies were considered a flower exclusively for the nobility, and in Japan they consider that peonies in a wedding bouquet are a direct sign to a large offspring.
But it is worth considering that the peony is a heat-loving flower, so if your wedding is scheduled not from May to July, then the bridal bouquet of peonies will be a very expensive pleasure, because you will have to bring flowers from another country.
Peonies have a nearly perfect ball shape, which allows you to make bouquets of them on your own, without the help of florists.
Peonies can be combined with almost all other flowers, for example, a bouquet of peonies and tulips will be very effective. In such a bouquet, you should use peonies of muted pastel tones as a background and arrange color accents with bright tulips. Another option is to add a composition of peonies with small wildflowers.
Which wedding dress would best suit a bouquet of peonies?
These amazing flowers are able to fit into almost any outfit, the main thing – to choose the right color and size.
For a short wedding dress is to choose a bouquet of soft pink or bright red peonies. If the image is light and innocent – pink peonies will emphasize this, but the scarlet ones will be suitable for a bold and daring outfit.
If the dress is not snow-white, but cream-colored or, for example, the color of champagne, white flowers should be abandoned, otherwise the dress will look dirty. Here the wedding bridal bouquet can be of any other color, the peony coloring palette is very rich.
Do not forget also that when choosing a bouquet of peonies, the groom’s boutonniere should also be made from the bud of this flower.
A bride’s collection can also influence the shape of the future bouquet. For example, miniature young ladies of short stature will like a bouquet in the shape of a ball, while tall brides should prefer a composition decorated with long ribbons falling from the stalks.
If you decide to entrust the creation of your bouquet to a professional florist, please note that it should be ordered about 2 days before the wedding. These flowers are capricious and can behave quite differently than expected, if you choose the wrong time. Strongly blooming flowers can crumble without waiting for the evening, and completely closed – and not to bloom.
Come to the issue of making a bouquet of the bride with full responsibility and do not be afraid of experiments! And then peonies will surely bring only happiness and prosperity to your new family!
