If there's any other wedding flower just as classic and stunning as the rose, it's the peony. While the ruffled appearance of an entirely peony bouquet seems appealing, these flowers can also cost significantly more than most. By combining them with garden roses, you're looking at a wedding bouquet with loads of texture. In the end it's a win-win for you and your budget.
There's nothing quite like a vase of fresh flowers to lift and refresh the home. But unfortunately, most fresh cut flowers don't last very long. The secret to keeping cut flowers looking good for as long as possible is to minimise the growth of bacteria in the water and to provide nourishment to replace what the flowers would have gotten had they not been cut.
