Why No One Talks About Florists Anymore

Reasons to Choose Roses for that Special Occasion

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:

Practicality

The Society of American Florists says there are no less than 120 varieties of roses that are commercially available today. Styles may range from tiny flowers with sturdy leaves to larger blooms with soft, fluffy petals. But that’s not the real beauty. Roses are generally available and can be reasonably priced (despite rare varieties possibly skyrocketing from $4 to $10 a stem).

Variety

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 swift glance at what makes each exceptional:

Hybrid Tea

With its characteristic shape, the hybrid tea rose is, in fact, appreciated for its homogeny, durability (it can survive the entire day without wilting!), and availability.

Spray

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 available in single shades or bicolor, such as the hybrid. Given the variance in size, they are perfect for giving texture and visual charm to an arrangement.

Garden

These roses are much larger and far lusher than any other variety. They are typically very open, natural and free-flowing. Owing to their fragility, they are very rare and thus costly.

Classic Loveliness

White roses paired with a classic flower like white hydrangea or a gardenia make a blast. 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

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 contemporary– and integrate sweet elements, such as satin ribbon looped into an arrangement of large and lush open garden roses.

Fun and Stylish

Monochromatic arrangements are becoming more popular, whether it’s all white, or a combination of hot orange and pale peach. Pick the single-color cluster of flowers (for instance, hydrangeas, stephanotis and white roses) and put everything together in a glass cube or a vase with an eccentric 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 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.
