Rose Bridal Bouquet
The rose bridal bouquet is the traditional brides bouquet. The flowers you choose for your wedding will make the day even more special, if you choose flowers with
Some of the most beautiful wedding bouquets I've ever seen, were made with roses and dried herbs.
Even if you want a traditional bouguet of white only flowers, you can still add some other greenery that will add their own special meaning. White roses stand for Purity. Adding Laurel, is reputed to bring good fortune. ( making for a long and happy marriage) Consider adding some Marjoram ( for serenity, joy and happiness).
A rose bridal bouquet with all white roses and flowers, can be very beautiful indeed!
Especially if the bouquet is graced with some lively white streamers with a couple of "love knots" ( So the love doesn't run out)
A red rose wedding bouquet is a popular brides bouquet. Not only are red roses very beautiful, and stunning against the traditional white wedding gown, but Red Roses symbolize love and passion.
Using this color can be very elegant! Imagine the tables at the reception (white table cloths, beautiful red rose centerpieces, maybe with a lighted candle glowing in the center, red napkins)...sounds lovely to me! Even the towering cake, with red roses, that make it almost "to pretty to eat"!

Start a Tradition with your Rose Bridal Bouquet
Why not start a tradition that can be passed down through the generations?
Dry the flowers
from your wedding bouquet, and turn them into
This potpourri gets passed down the generations, with each one adding her own wedding flowers to the mix. Through the years, additional "special" flowers can be added to the mix, and divided up, amoung simblings, so each child would have some of the original mix from the mothers...grandmothers..great grandmothers..(wedding flowers).
After a few generations, you could make a garterbelt sachet from the heirloom potpourri. The bride would wear it on her wedding day for "something old"
The Sachet garterbelt itself could turn into a family heirloom to get passed down through the generations!
It might even be made from a piece of heirloom lace (maybe from the veil or dress of another family member) ah.. the possibilities!
Wedding Flower Ideas

Pink roses are very special for a rose bridal bouquet. They seem very soft, and romantic.. I can imagine the bridesmaids wearing beautiful soft pink gowns, and the maid of honor with a darker shade. Can't you see the little flower girl, dropping pink rose petals as she makes her way down the isle?
Another color that makes a nice rose bridal bouquet, is peach (or) coral clored roses. They too seem very soft, and romantic to me.
Soft, pastel colored roses are perfect for Spring or Summer weddings.
Your rose bridal bouquet doesn't have to be a big massive bunch of flowers, it can be as elaborate or as simple as you want it to be. Sometimes less is better! Especially if you are a small petite bride, you don't want a massive bouquet to steal the show, and detract from your lovely face!
Notice the elegant peach bouquet in the photo.
Sometimes Bridesmaids will carry a single rose, wrapped in a long trailing bow. (this can look very elegant) It's also very inexpensive !
The Brides Bouquet for a fall wedding, would be nice if you chose fall colors, and added some berries, and Artemisia.
Lots of possibilities here! For table centerpieces, you could take small pumpkins, spray paint them an orange/gold color, place them on a pretty colored doilly, with a wreath of peach colored roses,(use different shades) and other fall flowers, surrounding the pumpkin.
This bright and sunny rose bridal bouquet, is like a breath of fresh air with those stunning yellow Lillies.
White Roses, and Babys Breath complete the bouquet.
Perfect for a Spring Wedding.
I'll bet this bouquet smells heavenly!
A classic, and very popular wedding bridal bouquet.
Made up of all roses. Red- for "True Love"
Notice the very pretty bow that was used. A green striped color. Different, but very nice!
If Blue is your color, How pretty is this?
Your florist will supply these "blue" roses (actually they dye white ones to get this fantastic color)
