Peonies: Filling in Gaps in Production

Peonies are incredibly popular flowers which provide a beautiful look to bouquets and arrangements of wedding flowers; however, finding Peonies at certain times of the year can be a challenge. Keep in mind as you plan your wedding flowers that you have several options which provide a similar look and feel of Peonies without worrying about Peony season, or breaking the bank:

Garden Roses: Garden Roses are a beautiful and cost effective alternative to Peonies. They are available year-round and are popular for their vintage feel and ruffled elegance. Garden Roses also have a larger bloom size, and work well as a substitute for the larger bloom size of a Peony. 

Ranunculus: Ranunculus, although smaller, boast a soft, feathered bloom and provide layers of color. Ranunculus are affordable and available year-round from growing regions around the world.

Carnations: Although often overlooked, Carnations are a very affordable way to add depth and texture. When clustered together, Carnations often provide a full, fluffy look, and serve as a nice alternative to more expensive flowers.
