Hello! Our wedding is in October 2014 and for my bridesmaid's bouquets I am having sunflowers but then for my bouquet I wanted a little bit of color so I want sunflowers, peonies (preferably the salmon colored ones with yellow in the middle), and peach dahlias. I have been in touch with many florists in the NJ area and they all say the sunflowers and dahlias are no problem, but the peonies they won't be able to do.
I went on google to see if it truly was impossible to get the flower I have my heart set on, but I found a few distributors who have peonies in stock year round and can ship them to you (a little pricey, but worth it!).
This got me wondering a few things - why can't the florists order from the wholesalers a couple of stems and use them in my bouquet? Are they being lazy, or is it truly not worth it to do?
Has anyone had a fall wedding and used peonies? Or does anyone know a florist in the Central NJ area who would be able to get these flowers for me?
