I’m wanting to have bright red flowers for our wedding.
Hoping to have red anemones:
The person doing my flowers has asked for a couple other options in case she can’t find good red anemones for me.
I really don’t want roses! I’ve just never been a fan and I’d like something a bit different.
Anybody know some good non-rose bouquet options? Preferably things that come in bright red.
I like red orchids and dahlias, but again not sure they’ll be available.
I think I’d even be okay with gerbera daisies if they were arranged well (interestingly)
Any advice or different things you’ve used (will use) in floral bouquets without roses?

In the red field, hypericum, glads, lilies, amaryllis, tulips. poppies, dahlias, daisies, peonies, hydrangea… The options are alost limitless. You’re best talking to a florist, or finding a local Master Gardener’s group and asking them. It’s the most common flower color.

Another bee was talking about this company:
The neat part is, you can look at your flowers by month available, and pick that way. Another pretty red flower would be red ranunculus if you can get it.

Hydrangeas don’t come in bright red or I’d be all over that.
Poppies and tulips are a bit too delicate to be used in a boquet I’ve been told.
Peonies look like roses to me 🙂
Hypericum are interesting, but it’s a lot of green, which I’d rather not have too much of. Same with glads.
@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: Thanks I’ll check out that site

Red hydrangeas are rare, and apparently a bright, true red is pretty much impossible, but (to someone like me who doesn’t care for red) they can come close.
Again, even if you find a red flower that does it for you, there’s a chance your florist can’t get them.
