Looks great! How about hydrangeas to make it fuller if you can’t access peonies?

@MrsWBS:  Hydrangeas are often a bad idea — they’re fussy and delicate and if you look at them wrong, they fall apart.  You also have to keep them in an alcohol/water solution until the day of in order to keep them blooming and not have rotted stems. 

OP, if you cut your stems on a good angle and pop your roses in steaming hot but not boiling water, they will open right up and give you more fullness.  That might help you get the visual you want.

@mistress_anne:  interesting. Clearly I’m no lower expert! Those def sound like they’re best left to a florist.

I think there is too much babys breath, to the point that it looks dated.

I would add a lot of peonys to it to break up the look of an all rose bouquet, & it would be really pretty if some of the peony’s were not fully opened yet, so give it that fresh picked look 🙂
