Check out our article about the pros and cons of having roses in your wedding arrangements. If you've already decided you want roses or love the look of toffee roses, keep reading for all our tips and tricks. We also compiled a list of all the best toffee rose alternatives with great availability and pricing.
Vintage Brown and Orange Styled Shoot
This styled shoot by Real Weddings Magazine had a neutral color palette. The toffee roses brought a rich pop of color to the otherwise muted tones. They were the eye-catching star of the show.
To achieve this look, use toffee roses as a focal flower with neutral colors and muted greenery. Our Caramel Machiatto Tinted Roses or Magic Mocca Mauve Roses can also bring this vintage design and color palette to life.
Boho Desert Styled Shoot
This vibrant color palette was an oasis in the desert. Various roses, King Protea, and peach Dahlias added charm and whimsy the desolate scene. Multiple types of greenery and abundant filler flowers finished this bohemian look.
Let your untamed side shine to recreate this look. The more, the merrier. What colors you choose for your wedding day will determine the best options for roses. We love Quicksand Cream Roses, Blushing Beige Rose, and Creamy Peach Talea Rose.
Fall Desert Elopement Styled Shoot
This styled shoot, also in the desert, had vibrant terracotta and shades of orange and burgundy. It featured Sahara Cream Roses, but could've easily used Toffee roses for a richer or moodier fall look.
Play with your color palette to make this bohemian look your own. Add more burgundy for depth, pink for a romantic feel like Barista Mauve Roses, or coral for a bouquet fit for spring.
Neutral Boho Dried and Tropical Styled Shoot
This beautiful boho styled shoot by LesLo Events expertly combined both fresh and dried blooms. They used both Toffee roses and Quicksand roses as well as Powder Pink Carnations.
Try switching out one of the roses with Sepia Brownie Carnations to let the other rose take the spotlight. Adding Magic Mocca Mauve Spray Garden Roses can add beautiful texture and volume.
Trendy Minimalist Desert Wedding
I'm really starting to sense a desert theme. How do you feel about having a desert wedding? Let us know in the comments below! This DIY bride chose Quicksand roses, Toffee Roses, Wispy Pink Bulk Spray Roses, Preserved Dusty Pink Roses, and Cardamom Spice Brownie Carnations. More pink in richer tones helped her achieve a more feminine and romantic feel.
Don't love pink? No problem! Switch out the mauvier (is that a word?) blooms for any other vibrant color you like. Copper, burgundy, or red would be gorgeous. You can also take out one rose color and add more stems of another to cut down on the number of flower types you need to order.
Toffee and Pale Nude Dried Spring Wedding
This sepia toned wedding was a dream come true for this DIY couple. When their original wedding date was postponed, they kept their fall-ish wedding palette for their new spring date. And the results were jaw-dropping. She kept the modern theme fresh by incorporating dried florals. In addition to white roses, Quicksand roses, and toffee roses, she incorporated Carnation Flowers in Bulk Antique Peach and Antique Creamy Peach Carnations.
If carnations aren't your jam, that's fine! Make this style more authentically you by replacing them with another bloom. You can also use these alternatives to change up the theme or look of the bouquet. Try Green Splash Lilac Astrantia for whimsy, nontraditional and untamed Lavender Hues Bulk Wax Flower, textured Football Mum Lavender Pink Flower, or Khaki Airbrushed Hydrangea Flower for volume.
Backyard Barn Wedding
This cute couple used, Sahara Roses, white spray roses, and antique creamy peach carnations for their backyard wedding. If you chose a rustic theme, listen up! This one's for you. A rural venue and rustic details, like the burlap bouquet embellishment, grounded the free flowing florals. Abundant greenery and succulents brought almost a garden feel, but the muted green tones kept it rustic.
If your style is less rustic and more vintage, include Amnesia Lavender Novelty Roses. To get interesting texture, add Pink Lavender Frost Dahlia Style Flower. For a untamed or garden look, try Dusty Mauve Airbrushed Limonium. All of these flowers bring rich, earthy tones like Toffee Roses, but achieve a different vibe.
If you didn't absolutely love toffee roses and their design possibilities before, I'm willing to bet you do now! This trendy, beautiful, and versatile flower is here to stay for the foreseeable future. We hope you were inspired to create gorgeous arrangements of your own using toffee roses and possible toffee rose alternatives. If you are, remember to tag us @fiftyflowers so we can see your work!
