Beautiful Wedding Ideas that Use Ranunculus
Loose Flower Arrangements
Picotee ranunculus are particularly elegant, recalling the contrasting border of featheredge creamware or an antique book with gilt-trimmed pages. Once cut, ranunculus last up to a week, making them the perfect choice for bridal bouquets or centerpieces. These and airy and loose arrangments are easy to arrange, but beautiful to the eye.

Wedding Centerpiece with Yellow Ranunculus
This sunny bunch of large and small blooms boasts creamy white, muted yellow, pale orange, and mossy green ranunculus; the texture comes from a mix of budded and open blossoms. White garden roses and yellow begonias add volume, while weigela leaves complement the color scheme. The stems, which are nestled in floral foam inside a footed compote, are cut to varying lengths, allowing for a loose symmetry.
Few flowers come in more hues than the ranunculus. Not just clean whites, pale yellows, and bright pinks, but also burnished coppers, neon greens, and even a creamy cafe au lait. Many lighter varieties are tipped with another shade, from lemon and rose to brick-red and magenta, lending them an added voluptuousness. Note that in many arrangements, earthy green ones can stand in for foliage accents.
