- Start by adding roses to your paper products, such as save the date announcements and wedding invitations, to set the rose themed wedding tone. A simple rose graphic is a nice touch on any wedding invitation, allowing you to incorporate your theme without veering from the classic wedding invitation template. You could also add a rose stamp to the envelope to truly complete the look of the invitations.
- Your rose bouquet. Obviously if you are going to be doing a rose theme for your wedding day, you will want to have a classic wedding bouquet with roses at the forefront. According to The Wedding Channel, many brides today are creating their own bouquets. This gives them complete creative control, but it is important to do your research before making the final decision. Order FTD roses and get to work creating a sample bouquet for your wedding today. It will help you get an idea of what you are looking for on your wedding day, as well as give you some DIY practice.
- Use roses in your centerpieces. This doesn't necessarily mean that you have to have standard floral centerpieces. You could create DIY centerpieces using roses that are both unique and beautiful. One way to incorporate roses in a nontraditional way is to float them in a glass bowl of water. This is an affordable way to create an elegant and magical decoration for your wedding day.
- Offer guests rose wine and pink champagne at your reception. Your guests will marvel at the detail and creative thought you put into your wedding day. When you have a floral theme, people anticipate seeing that bloom throughout the day and will think it a classy touch to add it all the way through and beyond cocktail hour.
- Sprinkle in a few surprise details. Add a few roses to the back of each chair sash at the reception. Adding roses to your cake topper is another way to incorporate the rose theme in your wedding dessert.
IntimateWeddings.com recommends keeping the guest list small if you are going to go for a themed affair, as it allows you to have greater creative control and more participation if you decide to take a more eccentric approach. Remember that a floral theme doesn't necessarily have to be all about roses, you can choose daisies, lilies, tulips or peonies for your wedding day. Regardless of the type of bloom, a floral wedding theme makes for a lovely wedding day and a great start to any marriage.
