Well, first of all, THANK YOU for also identifying the white flower. I had it wrong too! I buy Ranunculus in orange every year, but didn't even recognize it in white.

Hyacinthoides hispanica - the color seems right, but not really sure about the layout of the flowers. These seem to be a lot fuller on top. But I could be wrong!

Here are the Hyacinthoides hispanica if anyone would like to compare.

I would like to use the two flowers in the picture for my wedding bouquet and would like to have the name when I go see the florist. (On the chance she doesn't know either!)

Thank you for your help!

they do look related to hyacinth, try searching google images for purple hyacinth you might come close.
That's a pretty bouquet.

I think it's Hyacinthoides, also. Here's a link to one with a form similar to yours.

Thank you all! I will take this info with me when I go talk to the florist. I really like how loose it looks. :)

It's a bluebell. Many in cultivation are hybrids between Spanish and English bluebells, rather than pure examples of either. They are told apart using specific anatomical features.

The top one is bluebell?

Look at Pyreneun Squill here- at the UK site showing Bluebell look alikes.

It looks like that flower.
Spring Squill looks more like her purple flower with the ranunculus than any of the Spanish or Hybrid Bluebells I could find on this Bluebell ID site.
Could you please link to a site showing the Bluebell you are referring to? I'd like to learn about it.
