Anyone ordered anemones from afloral.com? I’m thinking about using anemones for bouquets but afloral only has cream ones and since my dress is white I’m worried they’ll be too yellow. So, wondering how yellow they are in person and if they’ll work?

I’ve used Afloral for the flowers for my centerpieces. They seem pretty true to the description, and they look far better in person than any other silk flowers I’ve seen at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Best of luck!

I used Afloral. I found very cheap, think they were $6 each bouquets to use to line the aisle. They look so awesome, I am tempted to use them for the bridesmaides! They shipped so fast, like 2 days it was here. Flowers are very true to color in the pics. Have you considered white cosmos? They are fresh and white and very close to a anemonie, and in August they will be dirt chep, you can even start them by seed, and have armfuls by August, here are my bouquets:

They apparently came in the mail today! I will be going back home tomorrow so I’ll take a picture then

Okay! I received mine. They are not white – that’s for sure. But they are also not a yellow. They almost have a slight green/yellowiish tinge to them, I love them, but no they aren’t white

I ordered anemones from Afloral and they were just okay. I believe they were called eggplant. I was really happy with the other flowers from Afloral, just not the anemones.

I ordered a test bouquet from Afloral: http://www.afloral.com/Rose-Bouquet-with-Diamonds-in-White
Unfortunately I just don’t like it. The flowers look real (except the “diamond” ones of course), but the leaves just looked horrible. I’m going to cut them off and I took out the “diamond” things and I think I’ll use it as a toss bouquet. I tugged and fluffed the flowers around and otherwise it looks ok… expensive in my opinion for a toss bouquet. I used a coupon from retailmenot.com but shipping was kinda high.
I think you get a much better deal going to Hobby Lobby when they’re running a 50% off floral stems deal. I can’t arrange flowers very well but I can throw together a couple hydrangeas and roses and I’m much, MUCH, happier with a larger and IMO prettier bouquet for the same price.
My fiance thought the afloral one looked “ok” and “good enough” but I felt kinda blah about it. I’m just tickled with the Hobby Lobby DIY one, and pretty excited to be able to tell peole I did the flowers!
