Do you still roll with the traditional rose, or have you jumped shipped for the newly popular peony? Which flower is your favorite??

    Roses! I garden a lot and hate peonies! I'm not a fan of the smell, the droopy buds, or the fact peonies attract bugs, especially ants. I'd never be caught dead with them for decor. At least not alive peonies.

    Roses all the way! I absolutely loved my bouquet.

    Yellow roses are my favorite flower, so roses for me! I had silk ones incorporated into the bouquets and decor and freeze dried yellow rose petals decorating the tables.

    Love peonies. Was considering having some in my bouquet but they were a little too big with the flowers I already have.

    I still prefer roses.

    Roses! Our bouquets are going to be garden roses and ranunculus with lots and lots of greenery!

    Neither; wildflowers.

    I do love peonies and roses though, FH gets me a bouquet every peony season and roses every few weeks, I love flowers a lot.

    I like the look of peonies for short amount of time that they actually look good but the smell is too much. Also..i garden and my peonies drive me nuts. They bloom for such a short amount of time. Mine always seem to bloom right before a nice big rain so they're tattered immediately. I guess taking care of the actual plant has ruined them for me.

    Flowers are flowers to me lol they're all nice and I can't really tell the difference besides color.

    I love peonies, but they unfortunately are a spring flower so I went with roses, which I also love so happy either way.

    Neither, lilies are my favorite.

    Peonies!!! I actually don鈥檛 like roses (unless they鈥檙e garden roses, but those are even more reminiscent of peonies). I love the fluffiness of them.

    I think a mix! I'm not a fan of really symmetrical one type of flower only bouquets. I like a more natural look of mixed florals

    My bouquet will have roses and lilies.
