Does anyone think this is a bit much?

Recommended Posts

I'm a huge fan of peonies myself :) I think you should just go for it and if it's too much you can always take some flowers out and add them somewhere else... Post some pics of your bouquet because I would love to see what the flowers look like together :)

Angela - I had light pink peonies and ivory roses in my bouquet - you can see it here: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t46511 and I had a mixture of ivory and light pink roses in my bridesmaid bouquets which is in the picture to the left. As you can see I like more subtle tones and wanted to keep things simple.


Peonies are expensive in Mexico and I love them too - the good news is that you are getting married in May when you can pretty much get any flower you want, even though they still have to be flown in. I know you want the hot pink color too - might I suggest doing different shades of peonies and maybe a few orchids in there in whites or pinks as well. I don't think either type of lilly will match well with the peonies, but that's just my opinion. I like the idea of one girl who suggested making a mock bouquet here. You could even go to a local florist and get their opinion and see the flower options at least near each other - I know I do much better with a picture in my head. Good luck!

Like the other girls have said, if you love each of the flowers you've named, then I say only incorporate a few of each in the different colors, so the bouquet doesn't become too large and overwhelm you. I think you've got quite a lovely selection going, and the end result is bound to look fabulous!


And for your girls, maybe do something that only incorporates one or two of the types of flowers, and consider doing something monochromatic, or just the lighter pink and hot pink, but save the white just for you!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
