{ peonies }

I always said that I would use pink daisies in my wedding.
But I think my alliances may have changed a bit...


Aren't peonies gorgeous?!?


What is your favorite flower?
If you're married, tell me about the flowers you used for your wedding!

I was in a wedding where we carried peonies. They were so lovely.

When we renewed our vows I carried hydrangeas. So different and so pretty :)

Bec said...

lots of hydrangeas! and my reception centerpieces were wild flowers/hand picked from my mom's garden randomness.

My favorite flowers are:
Peonies
Gardenias
Hydrangeas

The Peonies would make a beautiful wedding bouquet.

Just popped by from Shey B's blog.
I used all white flowers... snowballs, hydrangeas, roses and daisy's. It was beautiful.

Peonies are great too. I can't wait for mine to bloom.

Came over from Shey's blog. Peonies are FABULOUS!! But you'd have to get married in June...or pay a fortune =)

I was married in July and had Sahara roses, fresh herbs, and scented Geraniums in my bouquet. I loved it!

Nice to "meet" you!

They do make a stement in that second picture - gorgeous!

I like poppies - though not for weddings. ;) Our flowwers were just casual seasonal mix - very low key. We had a country wedding brunch. Sweet and simple.

My flowers were my favorite aspect of our wedding- I still like what we picked. My bouquet was simple... just a bunch of white roses. You can actually see them in the first picture of my post today! :]

Julie said...

Wow those peonies ARE gorgeous! They're big & poofy I love it!! I found you via SheyB's blog. =)
I had Calle Lillies for my wedding. I fell in love w/those while we lived in Cali.

Tulips - my life long favorite.

We had tulips and roses.

Sigh.

Eleven years later, and I still can smell them...

Visiting from Shey B's blog and wanted to let you know that your card sets are beautiful. Great colors.

SewLindAnn said...

For my wedding I had Stargazer Lillies and they are still my favorite. I've got lots in the garden!. My best buddy gave me a bouquet of her white ruffled peonies for Mother's Day, they are amazing. Love the contributions to the giveaway at ShayB, but I like your blog too! and now will follow.

Katie said...

Well, as my maid of honor you know this already, but blue hydrangeas and white roses.

Melissa said...

I carried red roses for my autumn wedding, but had I had a spring wedding, peonies or tulips would have been my first choice!!! Nothing beats the heavenly scent of peonies, Love Them!!!

My favorite flowers are gerber daisies. My wedding bouquet was a mixture of six different colors of them (a different one for each bridesmaid/groomsman) mixed with hot pink roses. It was so pretty!
