I used polo roses in place of peonies because of them being out of season for me too. The looked so beautiful and big! They weren’t the same roses but super similar. My bouquet cost  me $150, it was really big and extremely heavy lol.

I love garden roses and actually prefer them over peonies, they will definitely be making an appearance in my bouquet

GORGEOUS

I wish I could help you in terms of price, but I can only say that they’re BEAUTIFUL.

I used a mix of peonies and cabbage roses. Looking through the photos now, I’m have a hard time telling which is which.

I wanted to add, that I’m so glad we used cabbage roses and wished we used even more of them because they smelled AMAZING! 

My favorite garden roses that look like peonies are:

pretty jessica, strawberry hill, queen of sweden, geoff hamilton, radio times, and st swithun

that was my choice, the florist can actually get them for me and it’s not too bad. I’m doing a mix of peonies, garden roses, ranaculous and with a little bear grass and hyperberries. W/o peonies, $125 and w/$150. Worth it for me. I want a variety of flowers and these are my top 3 choices, peonies being #1.  I thought they were out until she quoted me.  I’m getting married in NC.

I would have thought Roses would be pricier than Peonies! I guess the season makes a big difference, huh! They look great but both those flowers can be sensitive. I think they’ll survive in april though (july-august might be rough for them!)

@MrsRugbee:  It should be okay since we are pretty much eloping and it will just be the two of us in a short ceremony outside. Then long enough for pics. 

I see that the OP’s wedding is tomorrow, I’d love to see how the flowers turn out!!!
