@FutureMrsHarris2014: I know the big pink ones are Peonies. Sorry I can’t help anymore.

@FutureMrsHarris2014:  The pale purple ones are sweet peas and I think the smaller pink ones are some type of rose. Hope that helps!

Peonies, sweet peas, and some type of tea rose. Good luck!

@FutureMrsHarris2014:  It looks like peonies, sweet pea and spray roses.  I think sweet pea is fairly tender though, so you might want to substitute lisianthus or something else that’s hardier instead.  Also, if you want to save yourself some money you can substitute peony roses for peonies.

FYI, the peonies and sweet peas will be difficult to get in July if you decide to DIY unless you’re willing to spend a LOT of money for them. Sweet peas are also really temperamental and delicate and difficult to work with, which means you may have to buy way more than you need in order to have enough that look nice/pretty enough to use for your bouqet. Also, don’t use them in a boutonniere; one hug and they’ll fall apart completely. Best of luck!
