Reasons to Choose Roses for that Special Occasion

A general symbol of love and beauty, roses are concurrently classic and contemporary, omnipresent but never overdone, always current yet immersed in history.

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

5 Takeaways That I Learned About Shops

According to the Society of American Florists, at least 120 rose varieties are commercially available these days. Styles may range from tiny flowers with sturdy leaves to larger blooms with soft, fluffy petals. But that’s not the real beauty. Roses are broadly available and may be logically priced (even as rare varieties may skyrocket from $4 to $10 every stem).
A 10-Point Plan for Florists (Without Being Overwhelmed)

Variety

There are three major types of roses that are the most probable candidates for wedding flowers: hybrid tea, spray, and garden roses. Here’s a quick look at what makes each one unique:

Hybrid Tea

With its typical shape, the hybrid tea rose is, in fact, prized for its evenness, durability (it can go the whole 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 purchased in single colors or bicolor, just like the hybrid. With the variation in size, they are great for giving texture as well as visual interest to a flower arrangement.

Garden

These roses are a lot bigger and lusher compared to any other variety. They are usually freeform and very open. Owing to their fragility, they are very rare and thus costly.

Classic Appeal

Create a power arrangement by pairng white roses with a gardenia, white hydrangea or any other classic flower. Or toss about 200 roses of the same kind and color into a traditional silver bowl for a fresh and neat look that creates a huge impact.

Romantic and Enchanting

Imagine fur-trimmed or beaded wraps for the bouquets, or ruby or citrine-colored tear-shape beads that dangle from rose-filled candelabra. Think feminine but contemporary– and integrate sweet elements, such as satin ribbon looped into an arrangement of large and lush open garden roses.

Exciting and Stylish

Monochromatic arrangements have grown in popularity, whether all white, or a combo of hot purple and pale lavender. Pick the single-color cluster of flowers (for instance, hydrangeas, stephanotis and white roses) and put everything together in a glass cube or a vase with an eccentric 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, with a reputable florist, anything is possible.
