Love the idea of roses for your wedding but want a color more unique than red or white? Wedding roses are a timeless tradition that can be made modern by incorporating fun and unexpected colors. Unique wedding roses can be a beautiful, fragrant way for modern couples to compromise with traditional relatives. Here are a few of our favorite ideas:
Brightly Colored Roses
Roses in pinks, yellows and oranges, like this Bright Blush bouquet, are a wonderfully cheerful addition to any springtime wedding, or wedding that is going for a fun, funky and unique vibe. Whether you just choose one color for a monochromatic theme, or choose to mix them together, you are sure to create a visually stunning display that will reflect the happiness of your day.
Multi-colored and Tie-Dyed Flowers
Looking for something really funky? We are crazy for these tie-dyed flowers and are seeing them cropping up everywhere online. Be one of the first to use them at your wedding! If you are a couple who walks to the beat of your own drum, or are going for a fun flowerchild-themed wedding, these are a great way to reflect your free spirit. If you and your beloved are also die-hard sports fans, there are roses that are specifically colored the team colors of some of the most famous sports teams. There are even roses that come in the specific colors of private colleges and state universities, so if you and your betrothed are college sweethearts, this is a great way to personalize your wedding.
Antique and Vintage Roses
“Vintage” is the “it” theme for weddings. Many couples are nodding towards decades of the past when planning their wedding decor and so there is a resurgence in roses that look vintage in both color and shape. We are in love with this New Love bouquet that features lavender roses and is accented with small rhinestones and flanked with pearl pins. Topped off with a silver metallic bouquet holder, this bouquet looks like something straight out of the Victorian-era.
One thing to remember is that sometimes the uniqueness comes in the arrangement of the flowers, such as the arrangement of these lavender roses into a hanging pomander. Pomanders have been popping up on wedding aisles all over, and are becoming a favorite alternative to the traditional bouquet. Regardless of which way you choose to express your personal style, wedding roses can still be a stylish part of your modern wedding.
