If you’ve ever attended a pagan wedding ceremony before, then you’ve probably noticed that those getting married often choose to incorporate roses. Many couples love including a rose gifting ceremony into their vows, which solidifies the love they have for their families, and each other.
Here are just a few of the reasons why so many brides and grooms select roses to celebrate their pagan wedding day.
They represent love.
Most people associate roses with Valentine’s Day and think that’s the reason so many couples choose roses for their pagan weddings. But the truth is that roses have symbolized love for years now. Greek mythology is littered with references to roses and the love they possess. From their classic shapes to their beautiful smells, roses are, to many, what love looks like, thus why they’re present at so many weddings.
They are reasonably priced.
While a dozen roses might set you back a pretty penny on Valentine’s Day, the cost of roses is actually reasonable throughout the rest of the year. There are, of course, some variations of roses that can cost a lot of money. But in general, you can get roses for as little as $1.50 per stem if you shop around for your wedding.
They come in all different shapes and sizes.
While most people think of bright red roses in their heads when they think about roses, there are so many different rose colors out there. Roses also come in many different shapes and sizes. So whether you’re creating a centerpiece for tables at a wedding or wedding bouquets, you can pick the right rose for any occasion.
