Peonies For the June 2016 Michigan Wedding Season

Michigan Peonies for June 2016

The 2016 Peonies Season is almost here!   Bridgewater Gardens, located just west of Saline, Michigan is officially taking orders for peonies wedding flowers for June 2016 weddings. 

In Michigan our peony flower season usually starts around June 1.  Sometimes if we have a warm spring we will have flowers in late May, sometimes in time for Memorial Day weekend.     Since the peony flower bloom is very dependent on the weather we are taking orders for weddings or other special events that take place during the following dates in June:

1) If you are local in Michigan and can pick up your flowers we are glad to accept your order for weddings starting on June 4, 2016 through June 25.

2) For peonies that need to be shipped a couple of extra days is required for shipping and allowing time for the flowers to open so we are taking orders for wedding dates of June 10 through June 25.

It is very possible that we will have some peonies flowers available earlier and later than these dates but it is impossible to predict. To see our previous years peony bloom dates please see our peony page If you scroll down a few screens you will see the peony bloom dates for about the past ten years.   

Peonies flowers need at least 600 hours of below freezing temperatures each winter in order to make nice peony flowers. We are having some very brutal freezing cold weather right now so we are expecting some fantastic peonies this year. 

If you need flowers for your Michigan wedding this June and are in driving distance of the Ann Arbor area then you are welcome to pick up your peonies and there are no shipping costs.  We are located:
  • 15 minutes southwest of Ann Arbor
  • 1 hour west of Detroit
  • 1 hour north of Toledo
  • 1 hour east of Jackson
  • 1 hour and 20 minutes east of Battle Creek
  • 2 hours east of Kalamazoo
Each year many of our brides do pick up their wedding peonies.  We can have them ready in 5 gallon buckets when you arrive.   For Michigan cities that are not within driving distance we can also ship Fedex overnight to Michigan locations.  Fedex charges within Michigan start at about $35 for delivery or 3 or 4 dozen flowers by 10:30am the next day to most cities within Michigan. For quantities larger than 3 or 4 dozen the cost goes up a few dollars per dozen.

For the 2016 peony season we will begin shipping on:
  • June 7 for June 8 arrival for June 10 events
  • June 8 for June 9 arrival for June 11 events

We will continue shipping through June 22 for events taking place as late as June 25.

Please note: Our peony delivery dates are subject to change based on weather conditions and when the bloom season beginsso just check with us as your wedding date approaches.
