5 Reasons to Choose Roses

5 Reasons to Choose Roses

Roses symbolize love and beauty, so it is no surprise that these flowers are a major staple in the wedding world. These timeless and traditional flowers have been around for over 35 million years (crazy, right?!). Although roses have been around for years they are still an indisputably classic wedding flower, which really makes them perfect for any floral arrangement.

There is something so special and timeless about roses. They have been used in wedding ceremonies for centuries, and for good reason. Roses are romantic, elegant, and add a touch of grace to any wedding ceremony.

Here are 5 reasons you should choose roses as your wedding flower:

1)  They come in all shapes and sizes, so you can customize your wedding flower aesthetic. If you are not feeling the look of a classic rose, we also offer a variety of options like ruffled garden roses, petite spray roses, or delicate sweetheart roses.

2) Roses come in a wide range of colors, and each color has its own unique symbolism. (click here to see the meanings of each color). For example, red roses are often associated with love and passion, while white roses are often associated with purity and innocence. Pink roses are often associated with appreciation and admiration, while yellow roses are often associated with friendship and joy. No matter what your message may be, there’s a rose color that can help you convey it perfectly.

3)  They’re adaptable. Not only do they complement almost any other kind of flower, but if you happen to have any roses left over after putting together your floral arrangements, you can easily de-petal them and still put them to use!


4)  Roses are budget-friendly. Many of our roses are available in wholesale quantities as small as 25 stems, and start at $49.99!

5)  They are versatile. No matter the theme of your special occasion, rose can always be incorporated, and work alongside almost any other flower in arrangements or simply on their own, as evidenced by the examples below--all of which were taken from our own DIY brides' Flower Stories!
