Hi everyone, I'm thinking about Peonies for my bouquet for my April, 2000 wedding. Anybody have any experience with these flowers? Also, can anyone recommend a good florist in Nassau County? I'll need bouquets, flowers for my ceremony and boutinneres (sp?).
Daisy mums are very hardy(healthy) year round and do just fine out of water for the day, if, they have been drinking water undisturbed for at least 24 hours. I give you this info just in case you are doing the flowers yourself. If you are getting married in late May-June, Marguerite Daisies are in Season. This is the traditional daisy, with fern like greens and only 12"-18" in height. You see these sold at farm stands (in season) in big bunches of 25 stems. They smell really bad(it dissipates) but they are very petite and cute.
On "A Wedding Story" yesterday(1/3/00) they had a wedding party making their own nosegays of all daisies tied with ribbon. It looked great! Good Luck!
You are so lucky to be able to use them! Peonies are so beautiful and the colors are great! You probably have a choice of the softer colors if it is earlier in the month.
Martha Stewart uses peonies alot in her bouquets, look at some back issues or better yet she has just put out a compilation of the last few years of her wedding magazines. It is in the book stores now.
