@accorn:  I have no idea, but I’m guessing 12 stems in that bouquet because I can see 8 and there should be some on the other side.

My florist is charging $144 for a bouquet with: 5 peonies, 12 cabbage roses, and 10 ranunculus.

Those peonies are HUGE..WOW…I was quoted between 200 -250 for 18- 20 stems for an all peony bouquet.

try going to your local Whole Foods Market — their peonies are beautiful, smell great and don’t have nasty chemicals all over and in them.

 

Plus – if you are ordering large amounts you can ask for either a case discount or wholesale price. I just checked with my local store and that was around $130 for 100 stems which is faaarrrrr better than any price i’ve been able to locate. Peonies are pretty easy to deal with so it would take much to cut them and wrap the bouquets with ribbon or drop them in a vase yourself. If you’re not the thrifty type, most floral designers will give you a better rate if you supply the flowers yourself.

 

Just a thought 🙂

@courtney.elise:  $130 for 100 stems?!?!?!? So jealous!

I love peonies, but my florist said they’d be $12-$15 PER STEM! It could be because I had a winter wedding though….I stuck with regular roses.

10-12 stems in a peony bouquet look fab. Cost per stem you could be looking between $8 to $15!

@sarahcool: I know it’s late but do you have any pictures of your bouquet or inspiration bouquet?  This sounds similar to what I’m looking for!

Mine was $275 I used a fairly expensive florist because I was out of town and wanted to make sure everything came out ok.  I don’t know the amount of stems but I think they were charging me like $15/stem but you have to include the design as well I guess.  It was 100% peonies light pink and white.

Hi all, 

Our wedding was on 09/01/12 so peony was hard to find in LA but I was lucky enough to find one at LA Flower District!  It was pricy though…$100 for 4 little bunches enough to make asmall hand tied bridal bouquet!!! My friend who is a florist told me at this time of the year it’s really hard to order from the florist!!! She was the one who did all my flower arrangement for the wedding! I love my bouquet so much!
