Peonies for Your Wedding

Every wedding season brings with it a favourite bloom and one of them is the peony.
Brides to be love the large luscious blooms that come in varying shades of white, cream, pink, hot pink, reds and corals.
However, its season of availability is very limited. While typically classified as a late spring, early summer flower, it’s dependent on the weather and once the rains come, the season is done.

Plan on getting married between late April and Mid June if you wish to have one of these at your wedding. It’ll greatly increase your chances of getting this flower.

Here are some photo ideas for your bouquets......
