While watching Andi give the finale rose of this season’s The Bachelorette, I couldn’t help but think about weddings and the excitement of finally finding that one person to spend the rest of your life with. Now everyone knows the Bachelorette is all about receiving that final rose but why a rose you might ask. The red rose speaks of passionate promises and the journey each will take to get there. Makes sense now why each bachelor was asked if he was willing to accept the rose and continue their journey together. Also symbolizing true love that is stronger than thorns. Take a look at Gena and Matt’s wedding blog to see how they incorporated red roses into their beautiful wedding reception!
Now the white rose which is associated with weddings, speaks of a love that is sustained more by loyalty. The white bouquet has been a tradition since Queen Victoria’s wedding in l840. Symbolizing love and loyalty to her groom and the promise to stand through it all, the rose bouquet is known as the queen of bridal bouquet. Ashley and Brandon used white roses in their decor! Check it out here!
Since the newly engaged couple started their journey with a red rose here’s a little inspiration for the one and only rose ceremony Andi and Josh will remember for the rest of their lives.
