Roses are the traditional choice for weddings. They represent a classic time-honoured choice and give your wedding that feeling of love and purity. 

There are many ways to assemble a bouquet of roses to make them stand out and feel unique. Most brides choose white roses, but red, crimson, and pink work just as well for weddings – it all depends on the colour scheme for the event. 

Most rose species are deliciously fragrant, which will give your wedding a beautiful scent. Use these classic flowers in your ceremony and reception arrangements, as well as in wedding bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and even cakes.

Gardenias are a species of evergreen; they retain their dark green leaves all winter. These beautiful, open flowers are native to Japan and Southern Asia and represent grace and elegance. If you’re throwing your wedding in the summer, don’t pass up the chance to include some gardenias in your event. Although they may cost a pretty penny, mix them in with some inexpensive flowers like baby’s breath and peonies as an affordable option. 

Gardenias have no stem, so they’re perfect for table arrangements, perhaps floating in a crystal bowl of water with candles, or even pinned to the hair of the bride and her party.
