Always a favorite among brides, ranunculuses are starting to appear at the flower market right now. The pretty, soft-headed flowers feature delicate, densely whorled petals and come in an array of colors, from whites and creams and every shade of pink imaginable, to deep purple, magenta, and almost-black. Ranunculuses are a pretty hardy bloom, which is why many florists love incorporating them into boutonnieres (they can stand up to a lot of hugs!). So if you're planning a winter wedding, add a seasonal accent like silver berzilla berries or a velvet ribbon wrap to a simple ranunculus boutonniere, like these six examples shown below.

White Ranunculus Boutonniere with Greenery (above): Crisp white is always perfect for a winter wedding; finish it off with sprigs of fresh pittosporum greenery and a raw silk ribbon.

Pink Ranunculus Boutonniere with Velvet Ribbon: We love how the color of the rich, velvet ribbon complements this groom's burgundy knit tie.

White Ranunculus with Viburnum Berries: For a more formal look, pair a bright-white blossom with nearly jet-black berries (how good would this boutonniere look pinned on a black tux?!).

Burgundy Ranunculus Boutonniere: For a jewel-toned pop of color, pair a deep berry-toned ranunculus bloom with fresh sprigs of winter greens.
