I’m getting married just a week before you and I’m having all ranunculus, have you tried talking to another florist?

There’s roses, lilies, dahlias, daisies, mums, your florist is going to have to let you know what’s in season though if you’re in such a rural area. It just all depends on what she can get. I love the orange lilies and dahlias.

I’m a ranunculus lover too! What about using garden roses instead? The way that the layers look make them look pretty similar, especially in the time before they fully open.

i love ranunculus and i learned something interesting about them. according to my florist the type that grow on the east coast have huge blooms and are very full and the type that grow on the west coast are small and don’t bloom as well!

anyway… i was bummed about this but she suggested mums instead. also try peonies, they look very similiar. there are also a couple different types of roses that look similiar as well.

@thewheelsonthebus: Hey there! We were supposed to have orange ranunculus too, but we can’t get them, so we’re using orange alstroemeria.

@Mrs.Mittens: Is your florist suggesting football mums, spider mums, or mini button mums?

AAGH! I’m so bummed, too! I just found this out for my Sept. wedding. I LOVE them, and so does Fiance. I may mix in some fake ones with real? I dont know, that could look really bad, we will have to do a test. Or we will just find another flower to use, unless we can ship some in from somewhere (without it costing a fortune).

I had the same problem (same date/middle of nowhere wedding), we’re going with lisianthus instead.

@thewheelsonthebus: For other orange ideas —-what about orange zinnias? calendula? or pincushion proteas? I love bittersweet but it’s super hard to get sometimes 🙁

orange spray roses would be similar.

I am using dahlias in my bouquets with garden roses. There are all different shapes and sizes.  There are some, tiny dome shapes that could be cute for boutonnieres.

If you love love love them, I woud use artificial ones with real greenery for the boutonnieres.
