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:
Why Businesses Aren’t As Bad As You Think
According to the Society of American Florists, at least 120 rose varieties are commercially available these days. Styles can range from big flowers with soft, sensitive petals to smaller blooms with robust leaves. But that’s not the real beauty. Roses are extensively available and could be reasonably priced (although rare varieties may increase from $ 4-10 per stem).
5 Takeaways That I Learned About Shops
There are three key types of roses that are the most likely contenders for wedding flowers: hybrid tea roses, spray roses, and garden roses. Here’s a quick look at what makes each one unique:
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 smaller roses have five to ten small heads each stem and thus fill out bouquets in excess of a single 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 much larger and far lusher than any other variety. They are generally very open, natural and freeform. Due to their fragility, they are rarer, more precious, and also costlier.
Combine white roses with a classic bloom such as a white hydrangea or a gardenia. 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
For the bouquets, picture beaded or fur-trimmed wraps, or how about jewel-tone (citrine or ruby) tear-shaped beads that hang from rose-filled candelabra. Think feminine but up to date — and add in sweet elements – for instance, big open garden roses with satin ribbon looped into them.
Fun and Stylish
Monochromatic arrangements have grown in popularity, whether all white, or a combo of hot purple and pale lavender. Grab the single-color cluster of flowers (for example, white roses, hydrangeas and stephanotis) and put the bunch together in a glass cube or vase that has a bold geometric shape. Contrast roses with spiny dahlias in brilliant colors, such as yellow and orange, and set them in surprise vases in hip 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, a reputable florist can make everything possible for you.
