A Peony Bouquet for an Informal Summer Wedding

The princessy peony—a favorite flower of fairy-tale brides getting married in ballrooms—gets a wild-child makeover with this bouquet. Created by Juliet Totten of Poppies & Posies, it's a lot more carefree and casual than a classic round wedding bouquet. "I created it for a wedding that took place in a boathouse. The bride wanted 'fun, relaxed, with pops of yellow.' I think it's perfect for a summery picnic-vibe event and great if your wedding colors are yellow, white, and dove gray," explains Totten. We love the unexpected mix of a pink-peony/yellow-tulip combo and the lively look of the veronicas, menthas, mimosas, and stachias.
