They look kind of like poppies… is there such a thing as white poppies?  Or other pale colors?

Lisianthis would work. You can even glue a black crystal in the center if you want that look.

Would you consider buying your flowers wholesale? FiftyFlowers has anemones.

That’s really strange that they won’t be available until a few days after your wedding. I thought November was a good month for anemones. I, too, want anemones for my August wedding but my wedding planner/florist said it’s going to be quite a stretch to get them but she is going to try to make it happen. Since I don’t have a bridal party to buy bouquets for I can slurge on getting anemones from a more expensive source.

What about a white daisy with a black center? Not sure how available they would be in your area. Some daisies also come in a pretty pale pink, too!

@Coral99:  You could, or you could put things together yourself. Floral design isn’t really that hard, unless you’re doing crazy centerpieces or something. I’m not sure how many florists would accept flowers brought in, but you could always purchase wholesale flowers and see if a florist will allow you to pay for their time/design skills.

Hmm, I don’t think there is any other flower that really looks like anemones…plus if there was, the florist should have recommended it to you.

 

All I can offer is another flower that I find pretty, soft, and romantic.  It’s called ranunculus.  It comes in tons of colors, including white and pink.  I think you’d have to buy a black bead to put in the center to make it look like an anemone though.

@Coral99:  I too have requested anemones but have been told it’s like a 2% chance she’ll get them. I’ve only requested them be an accent so I’ll probably go without, but like @lolot said, poppies are very similar. here are two pics I found in pink and white.

@becky_homecky:  White poppies often have yellow centers too though, so you may have to specifically request white poppies with dark centers.
