Just wondering if anyone has used garden roses instead of peonies
I’ve heard they’re around the same size and give the same effect, but I’ve never see it in person before
Any opinions/thoughts/pictures would be appreciated!

totally doing this.
Can’t afford peonies, and they’re out of season in October anyway.
plus they don’t come in orange. 🙂

Yeah, they’ve been bred recently to hold up in bouquets—they are really gorgeous! Here’s a slide show of garden roses so you can see what they like.

Love this look! Hopefully someone will be able to post pictures of some that they used.

I’m getting garden roses because peonies are not in season. I hope they look just as amazing

I had both peonies and garden roses. While they do not look exactly like peonies they are pretty similar….very fluffy and gorgeous!!
The one kind of right in the middle were the garden roses I had.

Most people can’t tell the difference anyways, so unless your guests are all florists, I suggest just going with garden roses if they are cheaper or in season for your wedding.
We are using Real Touch peonies and geez, they are amazingly real.

I saw some garden roses at a bridal show last October and mistaked them for peonies. They look alike to me.
