All you got to do is think creative! You can also mix them up with other flowers for variations! So here are some interesting ways where you can use roses on different wedding events. Read on, take notes and try them out!
Red & white Jaimala
It all started with the #Virushka wedding that broke the internet in December 2017. The trend of using roses for weddings including the rose jaimalas spiked up after the famous celebrity wedding that year. The soft colours of the roses and the subtlety in the whole wedding outlook worked like a magic inspiring many couples. You could also go for rose petal garlands instead of whole roses or mixing up the two using different shades.

If you're planning a destination wedding at a lavish resort, here's a neat idea of using roses for weddings! Decorate your mandap entirely with roses. Use rose streamers, rose chandeliers and arches covered with rose. Pick a colour theme and arrange your decoration accordingly. If your wedding mandap is of the conventional red theme, go for red roses balanced with the greens of the leaves. Make your wedding decor look like a dream!
Entrance decor in Pastels
When it comes to decorating the venue, even the smallest corners of it is considered and the entrance is one of the main concerns of decoration. How aesthetic and beautiful will the entrance have to be to give that first impression of absolute wow to the guests is something that can be solved with roses for weddings. Keep some arched structures using twigs and branches to keep the rustic feel and use pastel-coloured roses to make it absolutely photogenic.
White & purple roses for table decor
One of the elegant areas where you can use roses for weddings is the table decor. Setting up dinner tables with innovative and graceful styles is a decor trend every couple these days love going for. Colour coordinate the roses with the table covers and runners. Add some beautiful candle-stands. Accessorise the rose vases with pearls and glitters. Let your guests enjoy your wedding meal in style!
Table Decor with Red Roses
Apart from the floral and non-floral centrepieces that decorate the banquet area during the dinner, there are smaller floral arrangements that are used to deck up the food tables and make the food spread look all the more aesthetically appealing and gorgeous. Red roses on small fairy's wheels with candles placed alternatively and a flower bowl of red roses would be a perfect pick. When it comes to roses for weddings, the decor is always a priority.
White Roses for Hair Bun
When we're talking about roses for weddings, we just have to mention the stellar bun hairstyles of the bride! Using red roses for a bridal hairdo is almost an essential hair styling element! Especially if you're going for traditional hairstyles, dolling up your bun with white rose bands with tiny pearls and beads in between them just completes your whole dulhan look! You could mix up your red roses with little white flowers too to enhance your Gajra hairstyle even more.
