I think it will be fine bc you are the bride – its ok to have a different bouquet.  I am doing the same thing with teh same silks as Miss Lab.  My girls are carrying different flowers, still in the cream color, but there arent peonies anywhere else in the dcor.  I say go for it   Besides, the peonies and carnations are both ruffly.  I have t tell you though, that those specific peonies are more of a cream than a white – which I personally think looks better next to my dress anyways.  But Im telling you, it wont look out of place.  good luck!

also – I wouldnt do the green carnations – that would look out of place.  At least with the silks you’re in the same color family but you have a special bouquet because you are the guest of honor

I think you should do peonies if you want them.  It’s fine to have a different bouquet since you’re the bride. Also I think it’s fine to incorporate a little color and leave everything else white.

Your personal flowers can be different than your bridesmaid’s flowers since you are the bride! You should pick something that you love and don’t worry if it’s perfectly coordinated with your maids. I picked purple calla liles for my girls and green and white orchids for myself. It was stunning! If you do want to go with a pink peony bouquet for yourself, then you can always do white and pink carnations for your girls. I love this bouquet that was featured in Real Simple. So simple, fresh and lovely! PS- you can see my bouquet here: http://perfectbound.blogspot.com/search/label/our%20wedding

yeah its fine to have whatever you want I think!

I was initially only going ot use calla lillys but ended up buying a crap load of cream colored roase petals, and wanted then to incorporate roses into my flowers. so now I am having roses and callas in my bouquet and none of the bridal party will have roses. I am having the moms/grandmothers wearing roses.
