Gorgeous Decor Ideas With Anemone Wedding Flowers

By:

As one of our favorite wedding flowers of the season, we thought it would be nice to feature the anemone as the first BB Bloom in Spotlight for 2018. With its striking, black center and delicate petals, it’s no wonder brides choose to incorporate the anemone into wedding floral decor. And as designers, we love this bloom’s versatility. From simple and classic to whimsical garden to romantic elegance, the anemone can be used in just about any style of wedding. It offers a spectrum of pretty colors ranging from crisp white (the most popular) and blush to purple, burgundy, red, and pink.

The flower’s association with love has origins in Greek Mythology, which says the anemone blossomed from the tears that Aphrodite shed over the death of her lover, Aldonis, who was killed by the other Gods over jealousy of their affair. In wedding culture, anemones symbolize ‘anticipation of change,’ making them an excellent choice for anyone about to get married and enter a new chapter in life. For the bride-to-be in search of floral inspiration, here are gorgeous decor ideas showcasing the ways you can use the anemone to celebrate your big day!

Bouquet

These pretty blooms add a beautiful touch to wedding bouquets. Anemones in shades of white and light pink bring a softness and look dreamy paired with light, neutral colored flowers and pale greenery accents. This lovely, natural looking arrangement features white anemones with cream and white vendela and garden roses, lisianthus, and geraniums with seeded eucalyptus, succulents, and scabiosa.
