Which flowers are these?

The white ones are anemones, but what flowers are the purple ones please?

I think they are dendrobium orchids

Pretty hard to tell in the picture, and even the original bakery doesn't say. They actually labelled it, "sugar runaculas and purple flowers."

They don't really look like orchids to me, but honestly all I can make out are lightly frilled petals.

25 dendrobium orchid stems: white and purple

They remind me of Bougainville without the little yellow flower in the middle???

The purple flower with the yellow inside is a bougainvillea...one of my favorite flowers.  Although they are tropical flowers and I live in the Chicago area, I get a couple every year; fast growing vines.  I was recently in India and they are everywhere!

Sorry, this is the picture I was looking at.  Not the same as yours.

Thanks everyone...so those are fresh flowers? Yeah, I noticed the original bakery called the anemones as ranunculus! What should I suggest to the bride if she wants to choose this design?

We're all seeing different things.  I saw purple iris and purple calla lilies.

wow! lol! Yes, everyone is seeing different flowers  haha! Should I just suggest using fresh purple irises (since I think they're more easily available right?) and I can make the anemones with gumpaste?
