    I also love the look of peonies and roses in bouquets.  So you don’t lose the money you’ve spent on the peonies, I like the idea of using them for the BMs and doing roses and peonies for you.  To keep a cohesive thread, maybe you could put a couple gerber daisies in yours too?  I’m not sure how that would look but it’s just a thought.

    Both are nice, don’t worry Smile.  But if you would only lose $35, go with the flowers that you *really* love.  Well that’s what I would do.  (If there’s a big loss of money, then probably not the best idea to change.

    @SunnyBunny:  I don’t think it would look silly at all – I think it would be beautiful!  The bride and bridesmaids don’t always have the same flowers, so I wouldn’t worry too much about that.

    You can do different bouquets for yourself and your BMs. I love peonies so much too. I wanted a brooch bouquet, which wouldn’t really work with them, so my BMs are getting peonies instead. So at least they are in my wedding, even if I’m not physically carrying them. Some of my “likes” are all over the place so I say I have my actual wedding which has golds and jewel tones, and my alter ego wedding which has soft pinks and greens. Of course my alter ego wedding is only playing out in my head haha. Soooo long story short, you can totally get away with it, and I think you should do it. 🙂

    I had an entirely different bouquet than my BM’s (no similar colours or flowers, theirs were fresh flowers, mine were dried…), and it looked fine. If you love peonies, have a peony bouquet! I love their ruffled, feathery look. Gerbera daisies are pretty but they’re definitely more structured and geometric flowers, and it sounds like you’re more in love with a softer concept for your own bouquet.

    NO ONE will sit there and notice that your flowers are different to the bridesmaids.

    Funnily enough that’s one of the last things I notice at a wedding, and I lurrrve flowers.

    Go with both! Be greedy!!
