I’m having a peony bouquet and the florist quoted it at $200 for my May wedding.  This could be high due to my location.

I am in total lust, too! But I don’t think I have a chance in hell of getting them, because of cost as well as our season…

I LOVE the all peony bouquets, but for me in early april they aren’t the easiest or cheapest for me to get πŸ™ I have been told anywhere from $4 a stem to $8 a stem. So I will probably be going with garden roses that can look very similar.

We paid $45/bunch of peonies, and my cousin put them together with ranunculus.  They were GORGEOUS.  I loved the flower combination, even if the colors might be a bit bright for some brides (of course I loved them).

I read this post and it made me smile thinking of a event that my family decorated a hall – that we got the peonies for free…from the backyard!  The interesting thing is that we planned to do it that way, and have been amused for years afterward that it was the only year that the peonies bloomed exactly at that time!  (It happened to be on my dad’s birthday, but the celebration was about something else!)  If you can get the flowers for free from a friend they are really lovely!

@Missbliss: this happened to a friend of mine too!  Not for a wedding, just a party, but still.  So beautiful!  I think (NOT sure) peonies are unpredictable, and only bloom once, which makes them $$$. 

@OttawaBride2011:  Thanks!  I loved them.  πŸ™‚  But the combination of a few peonies filled out with ranunculus wasn’t too expensive.  Just a thought.  Have fun!

My bouquet was all peonies in June and I paid $225.  Totally worth it though!

Interestingly, at least one of the pictures you posted isn’t a bouquet of peonies…it’s a bouquet of cabbage roses! They look pretty much identical to peonies, have a different bloom season, and I think they’re cheaper as well. I’ll be having cabbage roses in my bouquet, along with ranunculus, lilacs, and other flowers (total cost around $75). My florist and I both prefer them to peonies, actually!

Those are cabbage roses. πŸ™‚
