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?

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

@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!
