I think if yours were bigger it would be too big. The scale looks good to me here in the pics.

Side question- are peonies in season in October?

@Gizmo19: You could measure something out 10 inches and hold it up to your body to see how it will look to get a better idea…

I hope peonies are available for you! They are one of my favorite flowers but alas, a distant dream in January!

I think it may be helpful to ask the florist if they have any sample sizes you can see and hold against you. Ours did and it was very helpful to actually see how big it would be. Another florist had different sizes made in silks,also to check for sizes. I think some bridal bouquets are way too big and also heavy, so you should know what to expect.

Another thing our florist did was make us check the florals out the day before the wedding. It was smart of her too, since the BM’s were actually bigger than the brides…they corrected it while we waited.

i think 10 inches is a good size (i’m looking at a piece of 8.5×11 paper and folding the 11 inch side down about an inch).

both florists that i contacted in vegas quoted me number of peonies instead of bouquet diameter.  i’m having 25 red peonies in my bouquet and my six girls are getting 5 red peonies, 3 red garden roses, and 3 red cabbage roses.  I was trying to count the number of peonies in my inspiration photo and i’m seeing less than 20 peonies.  i hope my bouquet is not too large.

I had a 10-inch bouquet and it felt plenty big to me – here’s a pic:

and for comparison, pic with the bridesmaids’ bouquets as well:
