Using Rose Petals to Create Romance and Elegance
As ancient symbols of love and beauty, roses are often used to express love and feelings for another. Using just rose petals can be a great way to add romance to your special occasions.
Here are four examples of opportunities to use rose petals for your engagement, wedding, and reception.
For the Proposal
When you’re getting ready to ask the big question, consider hiding the engagement ring in a box of rose petals. When you give your fiance the box, watch as she digs through beautiful, fragrant rose petals to find the engagement ring.
Roses as Wedding Favors
Inside an organza bag or sachet, rose petals make romantic, great smelling potpourri gifts that your guests can take home as wedding favors. Include rose petals in a sachet and include a tag with the name of the bride and groom and the wedding date.
Rose Petal Bouquets
An assortment of colorful roses can make one of the most romantic and memorable floral bouquets. The traditional rose can grace an more informal beach wedding to an elegant church wedding. You can’t go wrong with roses!
Rose Petal Wedding Walkway
When the flower girl walks down the aisle, have her sprinkle rose petals down the aisle for the wedding party to walk down. This is said to pave the way for a new beginning of happiness in the marriage, and what better way to do it than with beautiful rose petals.
Roses are a great choice as a wedding reception flower, to sprinkle in the limo, or add a bouquet to the honeymoon suite. Use scattered rose petals to decorate the tables at the reception. When the bride and groom leave the wedding location, toss some rose petals inside the limo for added romance. Add even more romance by decorating the inside of the wedding night suite with rose petals.
Use the above suggestions or use your imagination to add romance and elegance to your engagement, wedding, reception, and any other special occasion. Using rose petals will help to create a classic and romantic occasion that will be a long-lasting, treasured memory.
