Continue to add more blooms to your peony wedding bouquet, turning the bouquet occasionally to keep the bouquet a round shape.

White peonies sometimes have a soft blush or bright streaks of pink color in the lower or center of the petals.  You can see more easily after the flower is completely open.

If the flowers get awkward to handle, you can use stem tape  to keep the rounded shape of the center flowers together and in place if you wish.  

Just keep adding another flower in the "V" created by the inner flowers, then turn.

You may have to pull or adjust the stems of individual flowers to get them exactly as you wish them to be placed.

Once the round (leafless) peonies are in place, you can add some of the green leafy stems or buds to the outer perimeter of the bouquet.

It may take a little playing around with the look and placement.  I suggest you keep a full length mirror close by so you can see the effect against your body.

Some of the newer bouquets are extending the greens above the flower heads for a more rustic, leafy look.  You can add other greens around the outer part of the bouquet to frame in the peony heads.  Salal tips or seeded eucalyptus are popular choices for framing modern hand tied bouquets.

Don't forget to mist well with a flower sealant such as Finishing Touch.  Allow the bouquet to dry after spritzing and then pop into a vase and then into the refrigerator (set at a slightly warmer level than for food).

Peonies make a lovely choice for any late spring or early summer weddings.
