Continuing on with our current “flower theme” for Wedding Wednesday, I wanted to talk about roses.
Roses are the most romantic flower known to man and with examples like these, it’s easy to see why. The first two photos are of the Yellow Finess Rose. This demonstrates a light summer rose full of fresh citrus-like colors. Try these in a lovely arrangement with limes and lemons, or a bright Granny Smith apple or green hypericum berries as an accent.
The bottom photo is chocolate roses that look good enough to eat! These work well with softer shades of yellow. Download a color palette app to choose proper compliments to your floral design, but most of all, have fun!
Don’t be afraid to ask your florist to fly in different varieties from another reputable vendor like Virgin Farms. It’s important to do your homework when flying in product from anywhere. The last thing you want is a box full of moldy product. Just to keep in mind: A reputable florist knows when they’ve received product that is not up to standards and they have the means to rectify the problem, whereas your best friends’ sister in law might not.
