What says “I love you” better than a bouquet of roses? This iconic floral symbol of love has long been considered the epitome of romance; and June is the month we celebrate this gorgeous bloom. The most prolific variety is the red rose, which represents true and lasting romantic love. The red rose has also been adopted throughout history and across many cultures as a religious, political and social symbol. But although the most popular color, other hues have deep meanings as well. The color yellow has evoked an affinity for sunlight, and thus they are often used as agents of cheerfulness and hope. Yellow roses represent a platonic, joyful affection, with no hint of romance.
White roses are the traditional bridal flower, and early on in their history were considered the rose of true love. Although red took over that honor, white roses retained the aura of a fresh, new love, and so still work well in weddings. Lavender roses signify enchantment and royalty, and as such have a fairy-tale splendor and majesty. Light pink roses bring to mind grace and sweet, innocent romance; while dark pink roses are meaningful as symbols of appreciation, making a dark pink rose bouquet a wonderful thank you gesture.
