Oh, how many times I've been in the flower market during May or June, picking up my light pink and white peonies for a wedding...as I get my order I longingly look at the beautiful dark pink peonies and wonder why they are shunned by brides. No more I say! I picked up a few bunches and other lovelies that caught my eye (get a load of the purple artichokes!) to show a bride doesn't have to be all light and sweet on her wedding day.
These arrangements are all made with dark pink peonies, dark pink spray roses, silver brunia (the balls) and, purple artichokes....wow. I gave the bridal bouquet a long train of grey lace to pick up the silver in the bouquet.
