Hi, loves! Emma here. Last summer, I planted peonies in my garden and have waited an entire year to see them finally bloom. And let me tell you, they are gorgeous. Right now, they’re the softest pink and have the sweetest fragrance. I wish they lasted all summer long, but they are only in bloom for a short period of time. I wish I could have these blooms all year long! So, we did some research to find out where you could find fake peony bouquets almost as beautiful as the real thing… and you’re going to love what we’ve discovered from Fashion Touch Weddings! If you’re getting married when peonies are not in season (and you don’t want to pay a ton more for fresh peonies flown in), choose any of these fake peony bouquets to achieve the look you want without the cost. The best part? They will never wilt or die! These bouquets are faux so they’ll last forever and look beautiful on your desk or nightstand in a vase. Take a look and see what I’ve discovered…
Spotted: this magnolia single stem bouquet proves that you don’t have to go big to make a statement. Instead of carrying a huge bouquet of flowers, consider one large bloom – like a magnolia, for instance – as a single stem bouquet.
It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question from one of our lovely readers! Amber asks,
“Hi Emmaline! What do you think of dried flower bouquets? I have seen bridesmaids carry them but I’m not sure what the difference is versus fresh flowers. Are they cheaper? Are dried bouquets meant for a certain wedding theme? Thanks!
Great questions, Amber! We’ve been seeing many brides using dried flower bouquets lately. In today’s post, you’ll learn why dried bouquets are so popular right now, find out the best theme to use them, see which elements are included, get helpful tips, and see some stunning examples. Enjoy!
Silk wedding bouquets are a brilliant alternative to fresh flowers when the bride wants a bouquet that lasts forever. Instead of putting a lot of money into a bouquet that wilts and gets thrown in the trash, a silk bouquet looks beautiful for years to come. I’m very particular when it comes so silk bouquets, but when I spotted these over at Fashion Touch Weddings I knew we had found something beautiful. These are handmade bouquets, made with two hands, love, and high-quality materials not found in other bouquets. Plus, they’re an exceptional price! Wait until you see my favorite bouquets I’ve hand-picked just for you. My favorite? It has to be the blush pink peonies — you’ll know which one when you see it below! Enjoy!

Most weddings take place in the spring, summer, or fall which leaves behind the beloved winter season. That’s why we are so excited to share this romantic winter wedding inspiration shoot by Esme of BodaMaestra and photographed by Maureen Pacheco Photography! Esme explains a few reasons why couples should consider a winter wedding: “For practical reasons, weddings are widely celebrated during the spring, summer, and fall seasons. But what about winter? With venues offering discounted rates and often greater availability, more and more couples are turning to the cold weather months to celebrate their nuptials. Winter also offers a host of unique elements from which to glean inspiration (think snowflakes, sleigh rides, and a roaring fire).” Sounds romantic to us! Check out this shoot featuring a stunning color palette, delightful accents (like dancing shoes and a hot cocoa bar for guests), a beautiful cake, floral design, and more to inspire you. And, of course, a beautiful bride and handsome groom provide attire ideas for the picture-perfect winter wedding. I especially love the bride’s fur shawl — don’t miss it!
