Short but sweet, can someone more green-fingered than me tell me which flowers are in these bouquets?

They look like peonies to me.

So quick! Thank you both!

I'm going to disagree! They look like roses. Check out this slightly larger picture + click on it to make it bigger.

There may be some peonies mixed in there along with a few ranunculuses (the white ones on the right of the pic, especially look like these.)

OOPS. Filled with regret. Yes, hot pink flowers are peonies.

And here is a little more info about peonies, one of my most favorite flowers.

Could also be a few of these tossed in.

And if you want them for your wedding it better be soon as their season is a very brief window (late spring/early summer)

It's going to be a May wedding so that works perfectly, sorry it didn't for you.
