Let us tell you a little something about peonies. There are more than five hundred kinds of peonies and the two major producers of them can be found right here in Asia. While these flowers are so pretty that you cannot imagine not having them at your own wedding, the appreciation for these beautiful blooms will come with a price. A high one too.

Because these flowers don’t bloom all around the year and they are relatively short-lived, having a productive season only in the spring. Even if you find someone who can make sure that these sweet flowers be present at your wedding day, even when they’re off season, the prices you’d have to pay to get them there would double – even triple sometimes.

If you’re loving peonies and are feeling just slightly bummed about what we just told you, please let us also share with you a little secret; one that is so exciting, it is not so well kept. There is a pretty substitute to the increasingly rare and pricey peonies: David Austin Roses. These very fragrant blooms are often mistaken for the peony, although it’s bloom is noticeably smaller than that of the Peony. And they are available all year round, which makes David Austin Roses the perfect choice for wedding flowers.
