Wedding Flower Favorite: Roses

Posted By on Mar 5, 2017


Perhaps one of the reasons why we love roses so much is because they can be grown in just about any color and can range from whites to pinks to reds and purples.  Pair these darling buds with almost anything from baby’s breath, tulips, ranunculus, gerpoms, and seeded eucalyptus. However, possibilities can be absolutely endless!  With this much versatility, what’s not to love?

Roses are the quintessential flower when it comes to wedding design! They go with just about any flower but also look stunning standing solo. Their slightly curled edges give them a garden inspired feel, and with rose farms all over the world are readily available all year round. Forget about roses “by the dozen” – standard wholesale roses are sold in packs of 25 stems. We are not complaining though – more blooms to create stunning designs with!

Flowers have been a part of Valentine’s Day longer than anyone can remember, specifically roses.   Roses are iconic, they are the essence of romance and passion, but that doesn’t make them the only flower you can use for a romantic gesture. While we love roses, they can start to feel a tad overdone on V-Day, especially when everyone in your office has a fresh bouquet of red roses plopped on their desk, and your Instagram feed is an endless scroll of red, white and pink petals. So why not consider an alternative, but just as romantic, flower this Valentine’s Day? Set yourself apart from the rest and surprise your loved ones with a bouquet that will stand out in a sea of red roses this Valentine’s Day!

Wedding trends and themes come and go – but garden roses are always on the “IN” list for bridal design décor. Garden roses exude timeless elegance and make a bold statement as a focal flower.

Whether your style is classic elegance or heartwarming whimsy, garden roses are one of the most popular focal flowers for bridal bouquets and arrangements. A top favorite for brides and wedding planners, garden roses are a rounder, fuller alternative to traditional roses. Sometimes called “cabbage roses”, they add a lush, romantic feel that perfectly pairs with so many other flowers, from ranunculus and peonies to hydrangea and succulents.  For a rich, bold, more festive look, try combining them with the contrasting textures of Billy balls, trachellium, or safflower. Brides love their full bulbous shape and the unique texture they add to bouquets. Garden roses’ large blooms can range from 2.5 to 4 inches wide. They are available year-round and can be a wonderful substitution when peonies are out of season.
