Lovely round shape with multiple layers of thin, paper-like petals.  It will develop gorgeously and lasts for more than a week.  It belongs to ranunculaceae, which is rather big family with approximately 400 species*.  Ranunculus is a Latin, meaning a flog.  This plant prefers moisture/wet lands, just like fogs which inhabit humid areas.
Ranunculus is fantastic for a boquet.  Why not for your wedding?

Tips of decoration
You may find some stems are soft and difficult to arrange into a floral form.  Make a hole with a stick into a floral form before inserting a flower stem.
