Peonies, Roses and…? Bridesmaid bouquet question.

Are you doing DIY silk, for the centerpieces? The only reason why I’m asking is because my daughter is getting married, at the end of August, and her florist said peonies are out of season then, and therefore, $35 a stem. Her centerpieces are all white: hydrangea (large – take up a lot of room), carnations, and roses (the lessexpensive kind, that are large, when half open). Orchids are $$ and reserved for the bride’s bouquet and mom/grandmother flowers.

Ranunculus (sp?) are great too and look nice with roses & peonies.  In my opinion though, blush/pink flowers are too romantic & soft to go with a glitzy dress like that (which is gorgeous by the way).  I think bold pinks would look much more stricking and glamorous.

Since they are silk anyway, what about spray painting two or three per bouquet gold? That would be a nice pop.
