The Meaning of the Purple Rose: Love at First Sight & Royalty

 

Purple roses have a captivating spirit and are a great alternative for any romantic occasions. Their eye catching shades of purple are truly stunning. These roses have symbolism that is tied to enchantment, and have many time-honored meanings associated with them.

Purple roses have been a symbol of falling in love at first sight for many years. After meeting someone, these roses are sent by flower shops to show that the initial attraction has carved a deep impression on you, and that you feel the person is charming and simply irresistible. Expressing this beautiful feeling of falling in love, the hope is that the person will be much more familiar to you in the near future. So, as a recipient of purple roses, which are among the rarest, one should feel especially flattered having such beauty and charm, as to have captured the heart of the sender at the very first sight!

In addition, the color purple has always been a symbol of royalty, representing all things grand, glorious and noble. Therefore it makes sense that purple roses also symbolize these very things, as the mark of wealth and luxury. The first famous purple was a deep shade known as Tyrian purple. It was once reserved for rich and royal leaders like Alexander the Great and Cleopatra. Maintaining the air of noble regality and pure splendor, brides love to use purple roses in weddings. Even seen in the movie Bride Wars, actress Kate Hudson carried a simple bouquet of purple roses: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/help-finding-dress-replica.  The most fashionable arrangements and bouquets of roses by florists are grouped in a bold range of rich hues, including shades like violet, lavender, and lilac roses.

The Meaning of the Orange Rose: Desire & Enthusiasm

 

The Meaning of the Orange Rose: Desire & Enthusiasm

Orange roses are the perfect way to express admiration and attraction. Similar to how the red rose means passion and the yellow rose means friendship; orange roses are a bridge between these two emotions. With their warm, vibrant tones, orange roses indicate a sense of enthusiasm that the sender feels for the recipient. They are vibrant, cheerful and express fascination when you give them to someone.  Orange roses make an excellent choice for a new relationship that you wish to pursue further, because they symbolize a happy, loving sort of enthusiasm, while indicating desire at the same time.

Peach roses are often sent from flower shops as a gesture of appreciation or gratitude as opposed to a token of love. The color of their bloom is a bit more gentle, so they are a perfect way to show how much you appreciate or miss a dear friend. Peach roses also convey sociability and friendship, sending the message “Let’s get together”. The palest peach shades, like champagne, convey a sense of modesty.

The wonderful thing about orange roses is that they come in all the colors of a romantic sunset, including those in tangerine colors, salmon, peach, apricot and tropical fruit colored varieties. The unique blends of these colors are incredibly alluring, and wedding planners have a lot of fun with this fashionable color palette.  Even Oprah is very fond of varieties of orange roses, as she has incorporated them into her rose garden and the décor of her California home, known as the Teahouse.  http://www.oprah.com/home/Oprahs-Teahouse/4

For those getting married in the later part of the summer, as an alternative the softer orange color palette helps give a late summer feel without a complete fall look.
