Why Send Roses for Your Special Occasion?

A universal symbol of love and beauty, roses are simultaneously classic and current, omnipresent yet still never overstated, constantly current yet infused with history.

Below are more specific reasons to choose roses for your special occasion:

Practicality

According to the Society of American Florists, at least 120 rose varieties are commercially available these days. Styles can go from small blooms with strong leaves to bigger flowers with soft, delicate petals. 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).

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 quick look at what makes each one unique:

Hybrid Tea

With its typical shape, the hybrid tea rose is, in fact, prized for its evenness, durability (it can go the whole day without wilting!), and availability.

Spray

These tinier roses come with five to ten small heads every stem and so fill out bouquets more than one stem. They are stocked in single hues or bicolor, as the hybrid. With the variation in size, they are great for giving texture as well as visual interest to a flower arrangement.

Garden

These roses are a lot bigger and lusher compared to any other variety. They are usually freeform and very open. Due to their fragility, they are rarer, more precious, and also costlier.

Classic Appeal

Combine white roses with a classic bloom such as a white hydrangea or a gardenia. 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 Charismatic

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 growing in popularity, whether it’s all white, or a mix of hot red and pale pink. 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. Juxtapose roses with pointy dahlias in dazzling colors, like orange and yellow, and set them in alternative vases in trendy colors (think 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, with a reputable florist, anything is possible.
