I think you should go for the peonies because they only come around during a few short months out of the year (spring) and then they are gone!  I would LOVE PEONIES but unfortunately they are not in season when my wedding rolls around. 

When your flowers arrive a 12, just make sure that they are in water until the moment you walk down the aisle.  I’ve seen peonies at weddings before and they hold up very well despite everyone’s concern.  If you are still unsure, why don’t you have a bouquet of white english roses & carnations mixe together (they have that fluffy resemblance to roses) as a back up for your pictures after the church ceremony/reception just-in-case

Peonies will hold up just fine–that was what my bouquet was supposed to be made out of, but two days before the wedding my florist called to say the cream peonies for my bouquet were infested with bugs and could not be replaced.  I had ranunculus for mine.  However, all of my bridesmaids had blush pink peony bouquets and they lasted all afternoon, all evening, and i looked at one the next morning and it was *still* beautiful.  go for it!
