The Beautiful “Wall of Roses”

Filed under: Wedding Articles,Wedding Tips — Larry James @ 7:00 am

The wedding arch is a traditional element of most wedding ceremonies, framing the location where the bride and groom stand to say “I do.” Because it is a central focus for the ceremony, couples will want something stylish and coordinated with their wedding.

wallofroses1Here is a fresh idea for an alternative to a classic arch for a wedding ceremony. How romantic would it be to walk down the aisle towards this enchanting wall filled with delicate roses? More than any other flower, roses say, “I love you.”

It provides such a wonderful fragrance too, not to mention be a stunning backdrop for your wedding photos.

At the end of the reception celebration, invite the guests to take home pieces from the wall and make mini bouquets.

Have someone drill small holes in a large piece of wood or drywall through which to place the roses. Small water tubes on the back of the wall of roses will help prevent the roses from wilting.

All roses symbolize Love, but their colors have special meaning. Roses can impart either a formal or a casual atmosphere, depending on the varieties and colors you choose. Incorporate roses and rose petals into every loving step of your wedding. Use the list below to choose the shade that best matches the feeling you want to convey.

Red – Love, passion, respect and courage
Yellow – Joy, friendship and freedom
Pink – Happiness, gratitude, appreciation and admiration
Cream – Thoughtfulness, charm and graciousness
Orange – Admiration, fascination, enthusiasm and desire
White – innocence, purity, secrecy, reverence and to honor those who are deceased
