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:
The Society of American Florists says there are no less than 120 varieties of roses that are commercially available today. Styles can go from small blooms with strong leaves to bigger flowers with soft, delicate petals. But you know what the real beauty is? Roses are generally available and can be reasonably priced (despite rare varieties possibly skyrocketing from $4 to $10 a stem).
5 Takeaways That I Learned About Shops
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 swift glance at what makes each exceptional:
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.
These tinier roses are made up of 5 to 10 small heads for every stem and hence fill out bouquets more than a lone stem. They are stocked in single hues or bicolor, as the hybrid. Due to the variance in size, they are best for providing texture and visual interest to any floral arrangement.
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.
Create a power arrangement by pairng white roses with a gardenia, white hydrangea or any other classic flower. Or throw some 200 roses of the same type and color into a classic silver bowl for a fresh and clean look that makes tremendous 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 current — and include sweet elements – for example, large open garden roses with satin ribbon looped all around them.
Fun and Stylish
Monochromatic arrangements are becoming more popular, whether it’s all white, or a combination of hot orange and pale peach. 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 you’re preparing for an outdoor wedding or a traditional bash at a dazzling ballroom, roses will certainly make it more memorable. Of course, a reputable florist can make everything possible for you.
