Peonies

Meaning: Bashfulness

The UK peony season is quite short, usually the flower peaks Late April to June but often peonies are still available in the month of July. Have a second choice just in case. We normally recommend garden roses which are a little smaller but very similar in look.

Large scented flowers - you can see why they are the number one choice for weddings.
