  • Pros/Cons
  • Flower Care
  • Quantity Help

The Good: So many colors, so predictable, and so hardy! We rarely do a wedding without roses, they are truly classic and a wonderful foundational element in any arrangement.  

The Bad: Roses come closed and need to 'bloom', therefore they need a lot of elbow room, so no crowding! If tight set them outside in warm weather for a few hours or use a hairdryer (heat OFF) to push the petals open.

  • Remove lower leaves, give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water for 1 hour BEFORE unwrapping cardboard. This will prevent the roses from slumping over by allowing them to rehydrate while upright.
  • After an hour, remove wrapping and spread out. Allow for plenty of elbow room!
  • Roses can come in tight, so place them in a sunny location to encourage opening.
  • Remove guard petals, which may have spots or bruising

Roses are considered an 'Volume Flower'. Based on our design ratios, here's our recommended quantity suggestion:

  • Bridal Bouquet: 8-15 stems
  • Maids:  5-7 stems
  • Bouts:  1 stem
  • Corsages: 1-2 stem
  • Centerpieces: 5-7 stems
  • Large Arrangements: 10-20 stems

Flower Moxie reserves the right to make changes or substitutions. All substitutions are only done as a last resort, and only when the reasons for doing so are reasonable and genuine. For example, if a flower becomes unavailable (off-crop), incorrect color, or not in good condition to grace a wedding function we will substitute a flower that has a similar color and price-point. 

Acceptable Subs:  Different rose variety in same color palette.  


Older roses reflex easily so wait a few days! You can also encourage opening by placing your bucket of roses outside for a few hours in nice weather, or blowing into the heads of the roses with a blow-dryer. Just make sure your turn the heat OFF!
