Hybrid tea roses, Floribunda roses, and Grandiflora roses are highly desirable for cutting. The tea roses have long stems, and classic full flower forms. These are the ones you purchase (or receive) from the florists, when you want a bouquet of long stemmed roses.
The more petals a rose has, the slower it will open, and the longer it will last.
Shrub, English roses, and old garden roses do not make the best roses for cutting, because they have fewer petals, and open quickly. Thus, they do not last long in the vase. When you grow your own, you have plenty to spare, and might still want to sacrifice some for the vase.
You should cut garden roses from a plant that has been well watered. If the flower is well hydrated, it will have plenty of energy to develop and open naturally, and stay open longer.

Cutting gardens are usually planted in one area. You should plant generously for plenty of fresh cut roses, and flowers. This garden doesn't have to look pretty, it's purpose is to supply you with roses and flowers to cut.
If you desire large arrangements of roses, you will need to plant many of the same rose, if you want flowers of the same kind in the bouquet.
My friend (who loves her roses) calls her cutting garden "long stem roses growing", I call it "rose gardening with a specific purpose",
If you enjoy picking, and arranging flowers, consider planting other annual, and perennial flowers to add to the bouquet. That way, you'll have plenty of other cut flowers to use as fillers for your bouquets. If you need other flowers, or greenery to use as fillers, you could always purchase some from the local florist.
Special care, like using a floral preservative, after cutting roses, will make them last longer. Want to make your own preservative?
