Peonies have slowly grown to be among the most popular wedding flowers. Truly, they are delicate and beautiful, and they have a very festive feeling about them that makes them perfect for such happy, unforgettable events.
What happens if your wedding is set during the winter or fall, though, when peonies are not as widely available – and more expensive?
We have some tips to help you with this – so read on and learn about some of the loveliest winter alternatives to peonies.
- English roses. Perhaps one of the best replacements for the classic peonies, English roses come in a very large variety of colors, making them easy to coordinate with a lot of wedding color schemes. Moreover, they’re available throughout the entire cool season – so you will not have issues finding them at decent prices.
- Chrysanthemums. This is a fall flower by definition, and you will see it included in autumn weddings quite often. A bloom filled with energy and beautiful simplicity, it is truly a great choice – especially if you’re just looking for something to “buff” your peony bouquet in a non-expensive way.
- Double flowering tulips. Elegant in their pure simplicity, tulips are always an amazing choice for brides. Double flowering tulips, however, strike the perfect balance between sophistication and opulence – and they are widely available during the fall as well. Therefore, they make for excellent peony replacements, precisely because they have the same ruffled, rich look (but they are far more affordable during the cold season).
