Wedding Flowers & Inspiration: Perfect Peonies
The big and lush fluffy petals of peony wedding flowers are very popular and beautiful elements of early summer weddings this year. We’re inspired by the almost exotic femininity of peonies, as well as their loving symbolism of “Happy Life, Happy Marriage.” Peonies are wedding inspiration at its romantic best.
Peony Wedding Bouquets: Whether as thick clusters of all fresh peony blooms or everlasting silk petals with bejeweled adornments, peony bridal bouquets speak of timeless beauty and style. Delicate all-white peonies look so elegant with light green accent berries and flowers in the pretty ribbon-tied bouquet from Floral Arrangement Advisor. Soft pink peonies in the stunning bridal bouquet photo by KT Merry make for a wedding style of exquisite simplicity. If the dazzle of colorful gems in a wedding bouquet are what you seek, the Fiesta Jewel Bouquet with multi-colored silk peonies from Floral Gem Bouquets on Etsy is a gorgeous keepsake.
For a bridal bouquet alternative with sweet peony perfection, we love the Pink Peony Pomander with faux pearl handle from Cindy Kirkland at Creative Works, in the photo up top.
Peony Wedding Headpieces: We think brides and bridesmaids gravitate to peony hair accessories because they are so boldly beautiful in size and shape. Orange and tangerine wedding colors are hot this year, so the orange and pink silk peony headband with jeweled center from Sweet Apple Boutique on Etsy is a bright and standout complimentary piece. From bohemian to classic to vintage wedding themes, the peony wedding headpieces from Sweet Little Sparrow on Etsy and Viki Tiamat at Petti Bears Fashion Roar look like they come straight from a dreamy wedding fairy tale.
Peony Flower Girl Fashion: Peony blooms on flower girl dresses and headbands speak of such pretty sweetness and innocence. We adore the flowing tulle flower girl gowns with peony embellishments from Posh Baby Shop and Sweetheart Tutus on Etsy.
Peony Wedding Cakes: Fresh or frosting peonies make sublime wedding cake decorations, like these enticing cake designs from Suzelle Cakes, Rosalind Miller Cakes and Charmaine’s Pastry Blog. Though pink is a popular fresh peony hue, you can get playful and daring with frosting peonies in shades of red, yellow or even black.
Peony Wedding Decorations: Displays of single peonies or full puffy clusters look like soft floral clouds in wedding centerpieces and decor. Peonies mixed with hydrangea create a lovely floral centerpiece for spring and summer weddings, styled here by A. Hana Design. We love the cute and clever peony ice cream cone decoration from Flourish and Wink, perfect for hanging from tree branches or balconies. White Peonies seem to float atop the sparkling chandelier styled by Heavenly Blooms and sTORIbook Weddings. Pastel peonies and vases in pink and lavender filling the wedding table from Save the Date event planners is a stunning sight, especially with candles lit on reception night.
