Wedding décor with roses: ideas and themes

Rose as an allegory of love and marriage 

Thanks to marketing efforts, red roses have become a symbol of passion and love, and every year 224 million roses are grown for Valentine’ s Day in the US! As legends say, a red rose was the favorite flower of Venus – the Roman goddess of love.

But rose also symbolizes hope and balance, as it’s not only beautiful but also dangerous – if you have ever pricked a finger on a rose thorn, you know how painful it is. Anne Bronte poetically wrote: “But he who dares not grasp the thorn/ Should never crave the rose.” Similarly, love and marriage are also not only about pleasure and happiness.

Roses are used more often than other flowers to decorate weddings.

When it comes to floral wedding décor, roses have several advantages:

  • Wedding décor with roses is a classic and timeless choice.
  • Most roses bloom throughout the year, so the seasonality doesn’t impact the supply.
  • Roses are considered a hardy flower, so your centerpieces and other décor elements will look nice and fresh throughout the ceremony and reception.
  • There are so many types of roses, so you won’t be limited when choosing a color scheme or a party concept.

Baby blush wedding decor has been popular recently. To follow this trend, you can pick white, ivory, peach, and pink roses for your décor. These roses can be combined to create a soft pastel wedding color scheme.

Monochromatic wedding décor is also very elegant. To add a splash of color to a monochromatic color scheme, bright roses or other flowers can be used.

Red rose wedding décor looks more dramatic and sets up a sensual atmosphere.

How do you choose which way to go? Pastel, monochromatic or red?

We believe that wedding décor always looks great if it suits the personalities of the bride and groom. If you are passionate and affectionate, go with red. White bridal dress and suit of a light color look fantastic surrounded with a red rose wedding décor.


Are you gentle and sensitive? Pick pastel palette. Pastel colors are natural, and it’s easy to combine them.

Do you like modern design and weddings specifically? Go with monochromatic weddingdécor.
