Addicted to Anemones

Anemones are such a unique, beautiful flower. I’m a huge fan. I love how they can work for a modern wedding or a more vintage inspired wedding. They come in shades of white, pink, blue, or red. Their season is Nov – April which was sad for me since I really wanted them in my bouquet, but I had a summer wedding. And now some beautiful examples – if you aren’t a fan yet, I think you may be soon :)

I love that they can work for a chic modern feel:

a more vintage vibe:

a pretty romantic wedding:

a bright cheery bouquet:

And how stunning are these cakes with anemones!

  2. I think I’ve just revised my mother’s day request. LOVELY post.

  3. I am madly in love with these, too. I’m planning to make my flowers out of fabric…and I think I have my inspiration!

  4. Wow, those cakes are gorgeous! Great post!

  5. I have used anemone in several weddings (one Saturday in fact), because I like you am obsessed! But I do like to warn brides that they are an extremely delicate flower! If touched too much, or left out of water too long, they will start to wilt. There's a few photos of Saturday's bridal bouquet of roses & anemone on our blog:

    Such a cute collection. I too am completely smitten with their black and white prettiness. Seriously, don’t they make you wish you’d had your wedding in the winter???

  19. I have decided if I ever get married again I am using anemones. Thanks for sharing them!

  20. Any alternatives for a summer wedding? I really wanted to use anemones, but my wedding is this August, outdoors in the hot hot heat of Sonoma… If anyone has any suggestions, I’d really appreciate it. Our colors are black, white, grey, with bright acid and dark avocado green, and bubble-gum pink accent. Thanks!
