Peonies in...Winter?

One of the great things about silk wedding flowers is that you don't have wait until a type of flower is in season and you don't have to fork over a big chunk of change to get out of season flowers.

Briana contacted me and wanted the big fluffy pink Peonies that you see in all the bridal magazines. Her girls were wearing Peacock colored dresses, an up and coming color trend for 2012. She wanted flowers that were really going to stand out against their dresses and she didn't care one bit that her flower of choice is usually a spring/summer flower. I breathed a sigh of relief knowing I could get exactly what she wanted. And I gotta say, I love a bride that marches to her own beat! I thought these bouquets were absolutely gorgeous and I loved that she didn't go with a typical winter theme for her January 21st wedding.

We took an "opposite" approach to the bridesmaid bouquets. The Bridal bouquet had mostly pink, so the bridesmaids carried mostly white. We also changed up the ribbon color and wrap length to give it a slightly different style.

As you might notice, peonies are pretty large; too large for any of the personal flowers. Check back to see how we incorporated such a fluffy shape in the boutonnieres and corsages. And then after that, I have some B-E-A-Utiful pictures from Briana's gorgeous winter wedding. You won't want to miss it!
