Thanks for posting – these are my absolute favorite and what I plan to use in my bouquet in lieu of peonies (which I also love).

What’s the difference between these and cabbage roses? I saw a picture of a bee with cabbage roses and they were so gorgy! BTW, you work for a florist? Score πŸ™‚

@Linz1231: oh yay i’ve been thinking about using these. are they practical for a september wedding? and where do they fall in the realm of cost? (as in, budget, mid-range, splurge)

They are so beautiful. And I love that shade of pink.

@Linz1231: thanks! like pretty much every other bride in the history of weddings, i love peonies. but between our wedding being in the fall and the fact that i decided that flowers are not going to be a splurge area in our budget, they are not happening. i’d say something half the price of peonies could be a good option though. and good to know that they hold up well. i am dreading meeting with florists because i know they are going to tell me that everything i like is expensive.

@pb and j: We used them for our early Sept wedding. I mixed them in with cream standard roses. I absolutely loved them. So worth it. They’re definitely more expensive but I didn’t need as many because the heads were huge. I like them better than peonies because of the way some stay more closed.
