UGH! I’m less than two weeks out for my wedding and my florist just called to let me know that she can’t get ranunuculus ANYWHERE. She said due to drought issues, she can’t get them from any grower in any color – it’s not an option.
I’m already having cabbage roses, eden spray roses and dahlias for my vintage theme wedding/bouquet. Are there any other flowers that closely resemble ranunculus or should I just get more cabbage roses? I like the ivory anemone but with the black center, it doesn’t really go.

Did your florist recomend anything? Maybe some type of a poppy would work? Sorry you have such late notice on the flowers!! I am sure they will turn out beautifully!!I loove your other flower selections!!
What are they colors you are using/looking for?

Ranunculus was in the picture of the bouquet I wanted. As soon as I showed the picture to my florist, he said they wasn’t in season in December. He is substituing for another small white flower, not roses, but I’m not really sure what it is called. I would ask your florist for what would be a good substitution. She knows flowers. She should know what to do.

Maybe zinna or hydrangea flowers?
Edit: Esperance roses? Iceland poppies?

how about lisianthus or aster? Or just do more of the other roses or dahlias?

Maybe you could post your inspiration picture so we could see the color and feel of what your going for?

Could you do white anemone with green centers instead of black centers?

Our colors are navy and champagne with some gold. Because we’re having a vintage theme, we are doing some pale pink and peach flowers. I originally wanted peonies but they’re not in season. This was my original inspiration picture:
@StarryNight2011: I LOVE those Esperance roses — I’ll have to ask about those.

@milesbella: Hope it works for you! In my bouquet I had ‘finesse roses’, which are a peachy-pink in color, but also kinda pricey. It might be another option. Fingers crossed for you!

If you want a romantic ruffly look, the cabbage roses and dahlias will have you covered! Dahlias are my favorite. Dahlias come in a lot of shapes. I had two different types in mine.
Maybe she can get a different kind of you want more variety in your bouquet. I also would say lisianthus, is a commonly given alternative to those types of flowers. Here is a pic of a purple lisianthus bouquet. It’s so romantic! And has that ruffly, high petal count look!
