- Peonies represent luxury, happy life, and marriage, so the symbolism is spot on.
- Many peonies are wonderfully fragrant, so they'll fill your wedding ceremony
with a beautiful aroma.
- Traditionally, peonies took on a color in the white-pink-red range. But over time, other vibrant shades like salmon, peach, coral, and yellow have graced peonies' petals.
There are 5 main types of peony blooms, from the most delicate (singles) to the most voluptuous (bombs):
And hey, with peony names like Bridal Grace
, you can't go wrong with this eye-catching bloom!
