Posted by Caitlin on Feb 11, 2013

The rose has long been a classic symbol of love and beauty. No wonder it’s the quintessential wedding flower and the highest in demand around Valentine’s Day. Since there are over 120 different varieties in color and scent, according to the Society of American Florists, roses lend themselves to all sorts of stylish unconventional uses. Forget having a bouquet full of roses, instead swoon over one of these alternative ways to incorporate roses:

1. Aisle Runner: Can’t resist the ombre effect? Create an aisle runner with rose petals. It can visually enhance any ceremony space.
