Rose centerpieces, the flowers often considered to be a symbol of love
The rose has long symbolized love and beauty, and has never lost its style when chosen as part of a wedding floral arrangement or bouquet. This elegant flower can carry a variety of different symbolic meanings to your wedding day, depending on the rose variety chosen, the number of roses in your arrangements, and the color of the flowers. Here are a few ideas for how to bring these flowers of love into your big day.
Classic rose centerpieces … with a twist!
This isn't your grandmother or mother's wedding, but you still are going for an elegant look. If you like classic rose centerpieces but want to add a modern twist, try a playful centerpiece combining two rose colors such as white and pink together in small and simple bouquets, Martha Stewart Weddings suggests. To add a playful element to your centerpiece, consider using a fun vase such as a watering can or small clay pot for the flowers rather than a traditional vase. Another idea for a classic centerpiece variation is to combine bolder colors such as orange and red flowers together by wrapping the stems with a wide white ribbon and pinning it with pearl-tipped pins.
Romantic rose centerpieces
If you're hoping to achieve a more romantic-style centerpiece, Martha Stewart Weddings says to incorporate an old-fashioned rose color palate, such as blush and taupe roses, into the design. The source says that jasmine tendrils and hot-pink roses can add a hint of boldness to your romantic-style centerpiece. Additionally, a unique rose variety, like the David Austin, brings delicate beauty to your arrangement and offers a full bloom, garden look.
Martha Stewart says that in order to create a modern twist on the classic rose bouquets, you can try bundling roses together that are every shade of red imaginable, ranging from the classic deep crimson rose, to a bright and bold fuchsia. Then, display these bold centerpieces on top an all-white table setting. The juxtaposition will create a daring and modern display that incorporates the classic rose. Red roses can express deep emotions – be it love, longing or desire, but these flowers can also be used to convey respect, admiration or devotion. No matter which symbolism you choose, the rose is truly a great option for any wedding.
