Red Rose Wedding Bouquet

Apr 11, 2008
On you wedding day you will want everything to be perfect, which means planning everything carefully. As the bride you will be the centre of attention so careful thinking regarding your outfit is needed.

The flowers that you will be carrying in your bouquet for your wedding need to be beautiful because the bouquet will not only be the central feature of your wedding outfit, but it will also carry a very personal and special message with it. Many people often think that the flowers chosen by the bride are selected just for the color or because they are the bride's favorites. They fail to realize that there is a lot more to it than that. Flowers are not only symbolic but they also have a message attached to them and your choice of flower for your wedding can convey a lot. There are basically three types of wedding bouquets:

*Teardrop bouquet: has a shape like bunch of grapes
*Posy bouquet: simple and circular in shape
*Sheath bouquet: long shape of a flower, which is draped across the arm

A wedding bouquet that is made out of roses is one of the most popular choices for brides across the world. Red roses symbolize passion and love, two important factors for any marriage. A rose wedding bouquet looks not only stunning, but it is versatile as well. It has been an old custom for a man to send roses as a gift to his woman and it is a well-known fact that roses carry an unwritten message of love with them. Roses come in different colors and every color has a different meaning. Some rose meanings are:

*Black roses mean 'you are my obsession'.
*Champagne colored roses mean 'you are tender and loving'.
*A pink rose symbolizes brilliant complexion, glow of the bride's smile and perfect happiness.
*A red rose stands for passionate love.
*A rose with a single stem shows simplicity.
*A white rose means spiritual love, purity and innocence.
*A white and red rose means 'we are inseparable'.

Brides carrying flowers in a wedding is not a new tradition. It has its roots in ancient times. Initially strong smelling spices and herbs were used for keeping away evil spirits during such celebrations. But in the Roman era people started using flowers as it symbolizes fertility. A red rose wedding bouquet will look good placed against dark green leaves. All wedding bouquets can also be made with silk or fresh flowers depending on personal choice. It is not at all difficult to make a rose bouquet. All you need is some red roses, natural or artificial, some rose leaves, wire, clear crystals, crimps, head pins, a red ribbon and a crimping tool. Bouquets made out of red roses can never go out of fashion. They are always in vogue and one of the most preferred choices of brides around the world. The passion conveyed by roses is unequalled by any other flower.
