There’s a reason why white and green wedding color palettes are a favorite – they’re clean, classic and timeless. No looking back 10 years down the line wondering, "Why did I think that a Dr. Suess wedding theme was a good idea???" (Although to be honest that concept would be pretty cool, not gonna lie).
One of the staple flowers for any wedding is the rose. Why, you ask? Roses are the flower most commonly associated with love and romance and specifically white roses represent new beginnings and hope, what nicer sentiment could you want for your wedding day?! They also are sturdy, long lasting and have high petal counts so can be used in pretty much any part of your wedding flowers.
Here are some of our fave white and cream roses and the reasons why we love ‘em. Let us count the ways...

White Escimo Roses
The white escimo rose is one thing: sweet! Although they don’t have the largest sized head, they open really beautifully and reveal a lovely center. I love to use them layered into bouquets, floating above larger headed flowers, or tucked into larger arrangements. Since they aren’t as heavy as other roses they work beautifully as boutonnieres or in delicate bud vases!

Cream Spray Roses
Spray roses are amazing- there’s legit 4-5 buds on one stem so it’s like getting 4 for the price of one stem! Their lovely, creamy color can sometimes run a little blush at times but they’re a perfect addition to any color palette!
Spray rose buds are the perfect thing to use for boutonnieres and corsages. I typically use 2 spray rose buds for a bout and 3-4 buds for a corsage with some sprigs of greenery and **chef’s kiss** it's always perfect!
Cream Spray roses are also a perfect flower to use in compote arrangements since they can be split in half and spread throughout the rest of the flowers.

Creamy White Vendela Rose
In a world of white flowers, Vendela roses are a perfect way to create dimension! When creating a monochromatic look it’s important to keep tonality and texture in mind. Adding in soft cream colors helps to break up a sea of white!
Alabaster Garden Rose
I couldn’t leave a garden rose off the list!!!! The Alabaster garden rose is so beautiful for the high petal count and beautiful ruffling petals. They are definitely a luxury flower so save them for your bridal bouquet- they’ll 100% steal the show!
