Anemones for Destin Florida Weddings

Doesn’t the white anemone just scream vintage or shabby chic?  There is just something about the contrast of the dark centered white anemone that when paired with soft pinks, grays, and greens, and pastel colors, that gives you the vintage style you are craving.  If you stick with a black and white color pallette you may consider an old hollywood theme.  Also with the dark centered white anemone you can use it with a design that has navy blue as a color, which is what we are doing for one of our upcoming weddings.  One of my favorite inspiration photos is the white anemones with the sheet of music folded into a fan shape.  Anemones can also work well with metallics.  You can see from the photos below that they do coordinate with platinum and silvers. The anemone is a truly versatile flower.  However, if you choose a darker colored variety of the anemone it definitely moves away from the vintage or shabby chic style.  Your Destin Wedding Planners will be able to guide you in the right direction and use of anemones to create your vintage wedding design.  But if vintage isn’t what you are going for then the use of the other colors of anemones may work beautifully for your wedding. The bright pop of purples and reds with the dark center give you a bold yet fun or a royal look.  Anemones are similar to Tulips in that they will continue to grow after cutting and arranging.  Ask your florist if they have worked with this flower variety before and  have them leave enough room in your arrangements and bouquets to compensate for this continued growth.  They also have a fairly descent vase life of about 9 days.   So consider the use of Anemones for your Destin weddings.



The name anemone  comes from the Greek word for “windflower.”   According to Greek mythology, the anemone sprang from Aphrodite’s tears as she  mourned the death of Adonis.  Thought to  bring luck and protect against evil, legend has it that when the anemone closes its  petals, it’s a signal that rain is approaching.   Still other mythology connects the anemone to magical fairies, who were believed to  sleep under the petals after they closed at sunset.  Perhaps it’s because of this magical and prophetic  tales that today in the language  of flowers, anemones  represent anticipation
