Why Roses Are the Best Choice for Your Wedding Day

Roses have been featured at weddings for centuries. From the ancient Egyptians to the monarchs in the Victorian age, roses have continually been a staple of romance and beauty. With so much history and meaning behind roses, these luxurious flowers are the perfect blooms for your wedding day, no matter the theme.   

Why Choose Roses? 

There are so many great reasons to choose to decorate with roses on your big day. Here are just a few. 

They’re Classic 

Roses have been around for 35 million years, and yet, we still love them. Clearly, they are nothing if not classic! Choosing roses on your wedding day means you’ll never have to look back and regret following a passing trend or a quick fad. Choosing roses means you can rest assured that even years from now, when you look back on your pictures, your roses will still look as elegant and beautiful as they did the day you picked them. 

They’re Symbolic 

Beyond their beauty, roses are also symbolic. Roses stand for passion, true love, romance, and desire. And when red roses are used for a bridal bouquet, they represent bliss in the marriage as well as true respect and appreciation toward one another. And a deep red rose can mean that you are ready for commitment and have an intimate passion for that person. Ultimately, if you want to tell someone you love them, roses are the best way to go. 

They Come in a Variety of Types and Colours 

If red roses aren’t your thing, or aren’t in your wedding colour scheme, don’t worry! The good thing about roses is that they come in so many different colours! From blue and pink to yellow and purple, there’s a rose colour for every bridal theme. Also, roses come in all shapes and sizes, so if you’re not loving the look of a classic rose, there’s so many other options like ruffled garden roses or delicate sweetheart roses.

They’re Versatile 

Whether you’re going for understated and simple or bold and romantic, roses can help you achieve your desired floral dreams. For example, if you’re into a clean and classy look, pair white roses with a more delicate and simpler flower, like a gardenia. But for a more romantic look, a full bouquet of light pink or peach roses tied loosely with a ribbon will leave your guests speechless.
