Is it any wonder that peonies are most brides' favorite flower? The ultimate summer bloom, peonies feature gorgeous bundles of petals that unfold into a burst of color. The full, fluffy florals look luscious in large centerpieces overflowing with flowers, and can also be placed individually in adorable bud vases for an understated style.

One of the loveliest ways to incorporate peonies into a wedding is in bouquets for the bride and her bridesmaids. Peonies are those rare blooms that are equally beautiful in a single-variety bouquet, as well as in bouquets filled with other flowers and greenery. Consider holding a bouquet of only white peonies, or a combination of white and blush. Or, tuck a few blooms into an arrangement of garden roses (which are often mistaken as peonies). For a more organic look, include a smattering of green leaves, dusty miller, or lamb's ear.
