Purple peony wedding bouquets

Wedding Decorations | September 01 2010 | by Jenny | 6 Comments

One of our favorite types of flowers that can go perfectly well within a wedding or a wedding bouquet is the peony flower.

Romantically shaped with their ruffled lavish blooms, tall, fragrant and feminine, peonies make an excellent choice for a modern or a classic bride. These unique lovely types of flowers can be found in all kinds of pastel natural shades of white, cream, pink and purple.

We are going to present you here a purple peony wedding bouquet, hopping that this type of arrangement can catch your eye and win your heart. More and more contemporary brides feel drawn to this type of flower and choose it to be their companion on the wedding day.

The wedding bouquet is just as important to the bride as the wedding dress is. The types of flowers chosen by the bride must reflect her personality and must speak of her lifestyle, of her principle, of her vision, imagination, sense of creativity, beauty, fashion and style.

Peony wedding flowers make a wonderful alternative to traditional classic and predictable roses, and they can be seen incorporated even in wedding cakes, wedding invitations and wedding dress designs as floral patterns or prints.

The purplish hue can make this splendid type of flower look even more mesmerizing, eye-catching, mysterious, graceful, seductive, feminine, refined, sensual and romantic. Purple wedding bouquets are quite trendy and in vogue these days, when more and more modern brides-to-be are captivated and truly fascinated by this color.

The purple nuance can be associated with spirituality, magic, mystery, introspection, mysticism, innovation, refinement, sweetness, motivation, intrigue, attractiveness, femininity, royalty, unpredictability, fanciness, romance, power, strength, fidelity, uniqueness and flame.

The purple peony wedding bouquet can make a charming apparition on a spring time wedding, on a destination exotic hot summer wedding or on a fall vibrant wedding.

The peonies can look even more fantastic and appealing when combined with other flowers like gardenias, ranunculus, roses, calla lilies, hydrangeas, orchids, tulips, anemones, amaryllis, stephanotises, carnations, sweet peas or dahlias. These additional flowers can be used in white, pink, yellow, brown or green colors, depending on the assortment. But purple looks attractive when mixed with pale pinks, tomato reds, buttercup yellows, gray, magenta, pale blue, navy blue, chocolate brown, gold, silver, bronze, platinum, lime green, black, cream, champagne, beige, maroon or coffee brown.

In general, peony wedding bouquets are meant to fit a less sophisticated and pompous fancy wedding, and a more natural, simplistic and yet chic dainty wedding. That is why is very important that the bride keeps the arrangement of the bouquet in a looser, cozy and comfy practical style and shape.

Nosegay purple peony wedding bouquets, posy style purple peony wedding bouquets or practical pomander purple peony wedding bouquets are only a few examples of casual shapes and styles suitable for peonies.11

    Yellow calla lilies, green gerbera daises and peacock feathers, although we think that this bouquet is artificial.

    Purple peonies look very nice and the flower bouquet that we can see in the second picture is quite nice and indeed, they might look better in a more natural wedding type than in an classy or extravagant wedding in which these flowers might not be appreciated the same…nevertheless when we combine them with flowers such as anemones, dahlias or carnations they can be really expressive and attract the attention of any guest no matter how pretentious he/she might be in this regard…because not only the flowers in themselves are important when creating the wedding bouquet but also the way in which they are arranged and combined
