What Type Of Roses Should You Send?

What Type Of Roses Should You Send?

Posted by Marvel's Florist on 3rd Jul 2017

Sending roses has always been one of the most common ways that many people express their feelings to others. While roses in general are supposed to send the message that you care about someone, over time they have started to mean much more. Most often, what a rose says is determined by the color it is. Because of this, there are often certain occasions during which each color of rose is most appropriate. Check out the different variants of roses and when each of them should be sent below.

The Obvious Flower of Romance

We’re sure that you know when red roses are appropriate and that is of course, when you are wanting to be romantic. As the ultimate symbol of love, these roses are the perfect choice for anniversaries, Valentine’s Day or simply for showing how much you love someone on any random day of the week. When you send a beautiful arrangement of red roses, there is no way your message won’t be received and your message will be “I love you.”

For Weddings

For the most part, white roses are the most appropriate for weddings. While you may see a number of different colored roses at weddings as color schemes are considered, there is a reason wedding roses are typically white. This is because they are known as the “bridal rose,” as they are associated with unity and purity, as well as the bond of marriage.

For Birthdays

There are many different color roses that can be sent for birthdays. However, if you are looking for a celebratory color that will brighten the day of the person you are celebrating, we would suggest opting to have yellow roses delivered to them.

To Say ‘Thank You’

People simply don’t say ‘thank you’ enough at all these days and it is our opinion that there is no nicer way to send this message than with dark pink roses. Seeing as how they represent gratitude, these roses are the perfect choice. Whether you want to say thank you to someone who helped you with a problem at work, assisted you in moving, or was just there for you during a difficult time, there is no better way to show your appreciation than by sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

To Say ‘Get Well’

Being sick or injured is also quite the blow to a person’s morale. If you want to get them out of their funk, it’s time that you send a get well floral arrangement to them at their home or the hospital. Not only will a big bouquet of bright colorful roses remind them that there are many people who care about them, but they will also encourage them to get better with each day that passes.

To Send Your Sympathy

When someone close to you loses a friend or family member, it is often difficult to know how to be there for them. We think the best way to send your condolences is by sending a beautiful bouquet of white or pale pink roses. White white roses are good for weddings; they are also good for funerals since they represent both honor and reverence. Pink roses on the other hand, convey sympathy.
