All for Roses for Your Special Occasion

A common symbol of love and beauty, roses are at the same time classic and modern, omnipresent yet never overboard, eternally current yet imbued with history.

Here are more specific reasons to go rose at your wedding or any other special occasion:

What Almost No One Knows About Businesses

The Society of American Florists estimates there are a minimum of 120 varieties of roses that are available commercially today. Styles can go from small blooms with strong leaves to bigger flowers with soft, delicate petals. But the real beauty of it all? Roses are generally available and can be reasonably priced (despite rare varieties possibly skyrocketing from $4 to $10 a stem).
On Flowers: My Thoughts Explained

Variety

There are three main categories of roses that are the most likely nominees for wedding blooms: hybrid tea roses, spray roses, and garden roses. Here’s a fast glance at what makes each distinctive:

Hybrid Tea

With its traditional shape, the hybrid tea rose is, in fact, loved for its consistency, durability (it can last the entire day without wilting!), and availability.

Spray

These tinier roses come with five to ten small heads every stem and so fill out bouquets more than one stem. They are stocked in single hues or bicolor, as the hybrid. Given the variance in size, they are perfect for giving texture and visual charm to an arrangement.

Garden

These roses are a lot bigger and lusher compared to any other variety. They are generally very open, natural and freeform. Due to their fragility, they are rarer, more precious, and also costlier.

Classic Charms

Combine white roses with a classic bloom such as a white hydrangea or a gardenia. Or arrange around 200 roses of the same color and variety into a classic silver bowl for a neat and sleek look that makes a big impact.

Romantic and Enchanting

For the bouquets, picture beaded or fur-trimmed wraps, or how about jewel-tone (citrine or ruby) tear-shaped beads that hang from rose-filled candelabra. Think feminine but up to date — and add in sweet elements – for instance, big open garden roses with satin ribbon looped into them.

Fun and Stylish

Monochromatic arrangements are growing in popularity, whether it’s all white, or a mix of hot red and pale pink. Have the single-color cluster of flowers – for instance, white roses, stephanotis and hydrangeas – and set them up in a glass cube or a vase with an unpredictable geometric shape. Contrast roses with spiky dahlias in vivid colors, such as orange and yellow, and arrange them in unconventional vases in stylish colors, like deep blue ceramic water pitchers.

Whether your wedding will be held outdoors or in a posh ballroom, roses will definitely make you shine. Of course, a reputable florist can make everything possible for you.
