Roses mean a lot of things to different people. Red roses come to mind when thinking of flowers for a loved one. However, there are several colors in the rose family and each has a special meaning. I prefer pink roses for my bride because we have been together 23 years. Red roses are traditional, but pink roses are a symbol for grace, elegance, affection, and admiration.

Roses are for every occasion: birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and holidays. Roses also turn an ordinary, non-special day, into a special day. The sweet fragrance and bright color adds warmth to the home. Guys, take it from me, if you want a loved one to melt in your arms, think roses.

Guys, I know what you are thinking. You thinks flowers, and roses more so, are expensive. But roses do not break the budget. Yes, around certain holidays (think Valentine’s Day) roses can get real expensive. The remainder of the year roses are affordable and should make a regular appearance in your home.

Flowers no longer require a trip to the floral shop. For many, florists are not conveniently located. That is why I buy my roses through Amazon. They are shipped right to my door. Shipping is free and I get Amazon’s guarantee that my roses will be in excellent shape or I get my money back.

I also like to mix up the color of roses I send my bride. I prefer pink because they compliment her. But I mix it up, too. Below is a guide to each rose color available and the meaning behind each color. Use this guide to send your bride or special someone roses today.

Red Roses: Red has the most meaning of any color rose and is the traditional rose of love and romance. Red roses have a rich history of saying, “I love you.”

Pink Roses: Pink is my favorite color rose and my bride loves them. Pink symbolizes grace, elegance, affection (I like that), and admiration.

Lavender Roses: Lavender is my second favorite rose color and stands for enchantment and love at first sight. Not only are lavender roses beautiful, I want my bride to know I fall in love all over again every time I see her.

White Roses: White symbolizes innocents and purity. Traditionally used in wedding, I also like white roses in the springtime.

Yellow Roses: Yellow represents warmth, sun, and renewal. I also like yellow in the springtime and yellow and white mix well as the weather begins to warm.

Orange Roses: Energy, desire, and excitement explain the bright orange rose. Orange roses dress up the short days of winter, but also work well in the autumn in my opinion.

There you have it: the color selection of roses and their meanings. I start each month with a dozen long-stemmed roses. Our home smells wonderful and feels alive. And my bride is always close and cuddly. The cost is better using my plan over buying on holidays. It is a habit I started a long time ago and never regretted.
