You might be able to order them off fiftyflowers.com for your florist or your florist can??? Just a thought!  I love ranaculus too, so I can feel your pain! πŸ™‚

as the mom, I do think FLOWERS are the biggest issue of most weddings….

 

too many choices, too many reasons, too many seasons, too tall, too short, not the right shade, ….

this has been the worst part of the entire process for us

Good luck!

You had me panicked for a second, because I want ranunculus too, only even later!  Unless your florist is committed to only using local flowers or something then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to order them for a May wedding.  They may not be in season in Florida, but they’re in season somewhere!

Peonies are in season here in TX in May (May is peony season usually everywhere!) That means that the peonies that are normally expensive can be bought at grocery stores for like $6 for 5 or 6 stems! I know this because I buy peonies practically every week during peony season.  These bouquets are from HEB (local TX grocery store)! They were around $15 for everything.

I’m sure you can order them online.

I would give a call to your florist again, Feb-May is the big ranunculus season….they are a spring- early summer flower. then again flordia may be to warm for them, but greenleafmountain is correct, I know here in washington they will be in full bloom. Wholesalers get flowers from everywhere.

Most florists provide out-of-season flowers.. don’t they??  it’s just you’d have to pay more for the trouble and shipping.

Have you looked into natural touch silk flowers? They look real, they’re less expensive, and you don’t have to worry about them being in season! πŸ™‚

ask your florist about garden roses. i totally understand about the ranunculus…apparently they are not in season in italy in june so we are going with peonies instead but garden roses are very similar…and should be cheaper!
