Why You’ll Love Ranunculus
First of all, these flowers are super versatile. Available all year round, they do not care which season you choose to pronounce your nuptials. They’ll be ready. Their beautiful shades of pink or red, peach or orange, white or yellow, can stand alone or stand out in a bouquet of other hues. In fact, ranunculus are comfortable being center stage, but they also play well with others and fit in nicely with plenty of other blooms. Related to peonies and anemones, ranunculus have symbolized charm and wit for centuries- perfect sentiments to exhibit on the day you commit your lives to one another.
How to Infuse Your Wedding Day with Ranunculus
Not only will ranunculus look amazing in your bridal bouquet, but they can also be included in plenty of other ways throughout your wedding ceremony and reception, as well. Try using ranunculus as adornments in your hair in lieu of a veil. A low bun or other stylish up-do with a few ranunculus of varying sizes placed alongside will make a beautiful hairpiece. Have your florist create a ranunculus flower crown for your flower girl. You can also pair a single bloom with a piece of greenery like fern for amazing boutonnieres. Another great way to make sure your ranunculus are seen everywhere on your wedding day is to have your photographer carry a few spare blooms with her to stage her still photos of wedding items like programs, rings, shoes, and your cake.
Where to Place Ranunculus Throughout Your Wedding Day
Besides the obvious answer of “in your hands,” your ranunculus can and should be seen everywhere a wedding guest looks. Think about including these fresh, frilly blooms in a garland over the archway at the altar, or as borders on either side of the aisle you walk. Ranunculus make beautiful centerpieces or can be stretched out in garlands as runners on long tables at your reception. Adorn your guest book and seating chart with fresh blooms. Dress up your table numbers and place cards with a single bloom for each person. Include ranunculus buds on your cake and cake table, along with a few scattered among the other food or drink areas.
