    Hi,

    I see quite a few brides have peonies in their bouqets, problem is I don't see that flower on the availability list for Mexico. Do they not exist there?

    Also, I would love some tips on colours. I will be wearing ivory and my bridesmaid will be in a turquoise/blue/green dress.

    Many thanks for any help :)

      Anything is possible with enough time and cash! LOL

      If you really want peonies, check with your wedding coordinator. I know they can be pricey here in the US, so I would expect to pay a premium in MX because they will have to be specialy ordered.

      I love peonies and chose to go with high quality silks to save money and so I didn't have to worry about them wilting in the heat.

      There are lots of Turquoise/Aqua brides, so be sure to use the search button. The most common color combos seems to be green, yellow, orange, pink, or red with the turquoise.

        I also wore an ivory dress with my bridesmaids in aqua. I choose to have white & pink for my flowers (this is what the florist recommended & I was skeptical, but they turned out beautiful.) The bouquets had white cymbidium orchids with hot pink throats, hot pink freesia & hot pink roses (was suppose to be tulips, but ended up not being able to get tulips on Maui in May), there was also a bit of green for filler, but not much. The pink with the ivory & aqua looked amazing & I'm so glad that I followed the florists' advice. Good luck!!

            Thanks for your help. I also have to coordinate with the colour of the draping on the aisles. I am either going to have purple or green :)
