Hi @cara.gorman:  Not an extremely clear picture that is focusse on the bouquets

But I was able to zoom in some…

I’d wager a guess that the big white ones are Peonies (GORGEOUS Wedding Flower) and it looks like there is some Dusty Millar as well in there (the blue grey leaves / greenery)

Wikipedia – Peony =

Wikipedia – Dusty Miller (Centaurea cineraria) =

Wow much better photo.  Definitely Peonies & Dusty Miller in the mix.

Okay, I got a little creepy and I did some detective work for you (these people are on like 15 websites):

Bridal bouquet: David Austen Juliet roses, sweet pea, pink stock, white peonies, pink lisianthus, pink jasmine, dusty miller

This one has lots of pink and white sweet peas, vendela roses, pink stock, dusty miller

I think those large flowers are actually garden roses, which look very similar to peonies.

@Ls413:  The big white ones in the bride’s bouquet are peonies. But the pink ones are indeed garden roses.
