HUNTED : { Wedding Flowers – Coral / Pink Peonies }

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

White peonies blooming along the porch 
send out light 
while the rest of the yard grows dim. Outrageous flowers as big as human
 heads! They’re staggered 
by their own luxuriance: I had
 to prop them up with stakes and twine. The moist air intensifies their scent,
 and the moon moves around the barn
 to find out what it’s coming from. In the darkening June evening
 I draw a blossom near, and bending close 
search it as a woman searches
 a loved one’s face.

Peonies are beautiful, large-headed flower that inspire passion and poetry. Evoking simultaneously both Chinese and Victorian imagery their size, shape, delicate nature and scent make them an ideal wedding flower.

Whilst Jane Kenyon wrote whimsically of white peonies, there are many shades of bloom that would suit as a wedding flower. This hunt focuses on ideas and inspiration for coral / pink peonies.

Wedding Flower Ideas Pink Coral Peonies

One option for a simple bridal bouquet is to tie together heads of pink and coral peonies. The addition of red and ivory roses, afinished with satin material and a diamante brooch, makes the bouquet more vibrant and luxurious.

You could for lift inspiration from the Harpers Bazaar staff team and just bind together several coral peonies. Complete with art deco bracelets, it demonstrates that peonies don’t have to equal whimsy.

Brides, if you really want to incorporate the peony further into your day, there are accessories you can choose. Like this romantic pink peony necklace from Misi , for example.

This is a beautiful demonstration of how a single coral peony can work for your bridesmaids. I hadn’t considered either how well a delicate pink would work as a dress colour. Just perfect [ image : Tumblr ].

The image above via Honey of a Thousand Flowers may be sitting in a stark lounge rather than in a bride’s hand or a wedding ceremony display, but is a perfect indicator of how a fading coral mixes with deep yellows and reds for a rich Spring / Autumn display.

A brighter pink peony is striking in combination with turquoise or pale blue, as per this image via Accessorize Your Home. If your ideal wedding is simplistic in nature a single peony in a blue vase makes a sweet table decoration.

Whilst we’re talking decor, another simple idea suitable for a vintage, bohemian or tea party (not to be confused with Tea Party movement) styled wedding is peonies in mason jars. (image via JenDiggs.com)
