A Guide to the Meaning of Rose Colors

There are few flowers as beautiful, distinguished and versatile as the rose. A classic symbol of love and beauty, roses are also used frequently to express remorse, appreciation, and a world blooming with possibilities. On their own, single stem roses are synonymous with romance and, at times, innocence. Arranged together, a bouquet of assorted roses exhibits unparalleled splendor and creativity. Bouquets of uniform roses offer an aura of sophistication, classical elegance and passion to every occasion and situation.

Since Roman times, each different colored rose has been used to express distinct feeling and sentiments. This guide to rose colors will help you to convey the perfect message on your wedding day - or on any day.

Red - There is no better way to say "I love you" than with a classic red rose, the traditional symbol of beauty and romance. Red roses are synonymous with particularly deep feelings of affection and have also come to represent courage, sincerity, passion and respect.

Pink - Available in a range of shades from hot pink to a subtle, pale pink hue, the pink rose is one of the rose's most versatile varieties. As compared to their red counterparts, pink roses often convey feelings of love in a gentler fashion or express appreciation or sympathy. Pink roses are also a symbol of grace and elegance.

White - Create an atmosphere of purity and spirituality with a white rose. With their aura of innocence and honor, white roses have become popular wedding roses and are often used to symbolize new beginnings or as a tribute to a departed loved one.

Yellow - Their perpetually cheerful appearance helps yellow roses to represent friendship and happiness. In some cultures, however, yellow roses are also symbolic of dying love, jealousy or infidelity. Nevertheless, yellow roses are generally popular because of their positive meanings, and are often used to send messages of goodwill such as "Thank You" or "Welcome Back."

Orange - Cultivated in a variety of shades from vibrant citrus to pastel peach, orange roses reflect enthusiasm and growing passion. Lighter shades of orange roses often represent feelings of a budding romance, while more vivid shades symbolize a deep, passionate desire.

Lavender - Due to their rarity and eye-catching appearance, lavender roses are the rose of choice for those looking to get noticed. A time-honored symbol of enchantment, lavender roses are a perfect way to express feelings of love at first sight, parental love, and a beautiful world of possibilities.

Brown Roses – Brown roses decorate any affair in a surprising, unique way. These roses come in a wide-range of tones and shades, from russet, to café ole and from smoky to iced tea. Brown roses are a beautiful way to show a man that you love him – they are intimate and romantic, while also showing a masculine appeal. In addition, brown roses convey a feeling of warmth and stability and are a great way to thank someone for a job well done.

Hot Pink Roses – Hot pink roses are symbolic of gratitude and appreciation and are a great way to tell someone that they possess a sense of vibrant femininity. They are prefect for telling your significant other that you find her exciting, while simultaneously indicating a sense of appreciation and admiration.
