Pink Peonies

My FI works all the time during July...even weekends until late so he escaped for a quick "break" with me yesterday to head to Trader Joe's. Right when we walked in I saw them...fresh cut pink peonies. A whole bouquet for only $6.99 can you believe it?! My stomach dropped. This is why I wanted to be a spring or summer bride. Waaaaaahhhh.

I pointed them out to my FI.

"See baby those are peonies...pretty huh?"


"Ya...see them?"

"Hmmm sure pretty..."

Not exactly the reaction I was looking for only whatever he is a guy after all.

Next week I have my final meeting with our florist who is going to give me her best guess of if she will be able to find peonies for us in October or not...oh to be a spring or summer bride...swoon...

Let go of the peonies. October is not the month. Do we have the same wedding date? Hm? I can't remember. 10.11?
Think hydrangeas and garden roses and mums - all in season. You'll pay top dollar and get smaller heads in fall, not like the gorgeous stuff available now. I feel your pain though. I *heart* peonies too. :)

I am also an October bride, but I heard peonies were in season last October, so there's hope for this October! Keep your fingers crossed!

I really adore peonies as well. I am a summer bride but I don't want to risk the flowers dying too soon or whatever. Plus they are SO expensive. I bought a silk peony from Michaels for my dress and it looks really real. I recently decided to get a bunch of silk peonies and incorporate them into the bouquets with the real flowers. Seriously, no one will know the difference or care if they do.
