Fun fact: The peony is Duchess Meghan Markle's favorite flower. And they're currently in season for all you spring brides.
With peak peony season beginning in early spring and extending through late June, there's no shortage of gorgeous wedding flowers for your bridal bouquet. Despite the relatively small window of budget-friendly growing time, brides clamor for this quintessential wedding flower all year-round. And can you really blame them? With the fluffy blooms available in white, cream, yellow, and varying shades of pink and red, peonies are the perfect addition to all bridal bouquets.
Whether you're hosting a ballroom bash, an outdoor rustic celebration, or a city-chic affair, peonies complement every type of wedding. For a classic style, pair these beauties with similar traditional flowers such as roses, and for something more modern, add unexpected blooms like wildflowers or King Protea for a different vibe.
Also, remember that pretty peony bouquets can be created to accommodate any budget: You can splurge on an arrangement that's strictly peonies, and at the same time, you can save big by using the popular blossom as an accent flower within an arrangement filled with more affordable blooms. Another budget-friendly idea? Consider carrying a posy down the aisle rather than a traditional bouquet—since peonies are so voluminous, fewer stems still make a serious impact.
