I'd love some of it in my bouquet.
The pinky one.

A peony?

I think it's an old fashioned rose but I may be wrong

Ranunculus? Aka Persian Buttercup. They come in loads of beautiful colours, I'm sure thats what it is. Loads of petals like a rose but much more circular.

Ooooh I think it may be a Ranunculus

peanutbutter2409 Mon 06-Mar-17 17:42:23

Gorgeous peonies!

Like roses, but even better flowers

highinthesky Mon 06-Mar-17 17:44:54

The flowers in that pic are:-

Pink - ranunculus
Pink small cerise - waxflower
White - lisianthus
White small bobble - gypsophilia
Green bobble - green bell

Ranunculus is a spring flower so will be available between Jan to April. They are beautiful but can be quite expensive. You'll get it the rest of the year but will pay £££. Other spring flowers are anemones, tulips, hyacinths, muscari.

When are you getting married?

Just lovely. They're a late spring bloomer in the uk but sure florists can get them all year round.

They're artificial arnt they? But yes, ranunculus very pretty.

MollyHuaCha Mon 06-Mar-17 17:52:48

My favourite flowers flowers

IAmcuriousyellow Mon 06-Mar-17 17:53:22

They're a late spring flower but sure florists can get them all year round. They last a long time as a cut flower too so perfect for your bouquet!

No they aren't artificial they are real. I took the pic at a wedding I was at.
My wedding is right at the end of May. So will I not be able to have them?
Depending on if they are in fact peonies or ranunculus lol!

IAmcuriousyellow Mon 06-Mar-17 21:26:41

I'm sure you'll be able to get them in late may - I'm sure you could get them any time of year but as yorkshire says above the more out of season the more you'll pay. I'm certain they're Ranunculus! Peonies are not quite so "regular" and have more variation of colour in their (lovely) petals.

Definitely ranunculus, lovely!

Thecontentedcat Mon 06-Mar-17 21:38:19

There will lots of lovely flowers in may, choose things that are in flower locally and then you can grow them in your garden and be reminded of your beautiful flowers at your lovely wedding at the time of your anniversary.

These sorts of roses, www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/popular-searches/highly-recommended/ "english" roses, are quite similar. a lot smell heavenly too. I don't know if any pink ones are in flower in May, but they would be a lovely thing to grow at home, like contentedcat suggests
