Romantic wedding flowers often follow the hearts and flowers of a Valentine’s Day celebration.

February of course is the time of year when we all turn our minds to roses. Generally red roses, but this month I want to look at others too. The softer shades of roses as romantic wedding flowers are white, cream, ivory and muted vintage shades, all-time bridal favourites. The rose family is huge and so well suited to the romance of a wedding.

Rose bridal bouquets are one of the most popular choices and a current trend is to carry a soft informal garden style rose bouquet.

When it comes to the Men’s buttonholes once again roses make the perfect buttonhole choice. Team co-ordinating buttonhole roses with foliages and additional detail from the brides bouquet or add a simple rose bud on its own to the lapel of all of the principle men in the bridal party.

Rose table decorations are such a popular choice and the great thing is that roses can be adapted to suit so many table decorations including tall vases, low urns or rings to surround candelabra. Use them on their own or combine with other flowers in your chosen colour theme.

Dress the napkins on the top and guest tables with a single rose. Choose to decorate them all or on alternate place settings, just for the ladies.

Entrance displays to church doorways or reception venue thresholds might include topiary trees studded with Alice in Wonderland style fresh rose detail.

Key room decorations, or altar steps or either side of a registrar’s table may include stunning 6ft floor standing rose covered candelabra

Finishing touches maybe added to cake designs by adding roses as a floral layer between cake tiers.
