“If I get married, I want to be very married.” — Audrey Hepburn

We love bridal showers. This pre-wedding ritual is one of our favorite celebrations. The joy, the excitement, the bridal shower roses! There are no hard and fast rules to follow when planning a bridal shower, but they are often hosted by the maid of honor, and there are interesting traditions you may want to include, such as the groom arriving at the end of the event with flowers.

Regardless of the type of bridal shower, it's important to remember the decorations. We suggest you begin your planning by selecting fresh and long-lasting bridal shower flowers. Below we've shared some of our favorite bridal shower roses, as well as some of the best flowers for bridal shower tables.

A Brief History of the Bridal Shower

The tradition of bridal showers began in the U.S. in the 1890s as a way for future brides to receive gifts and money from friends in case they didn't have a dowry for their wedding. While there are historical references to bridal showers in Europe as early as the 16th century, the modern bridal shower gained worldwide popularity in the 1930s. Today, bridal showers range from spontaneous and informal gatherings to lavish all-day parties.

Best Bridal Shower Roses

Nothing is more dramatic or memorable than a spectacular centerpiece of bridal shower roses. With over 24 shades, there are many ways to make a statement. We suggest choosing a color based on the symbolism associated with the moment, such as light pink, which is associated with joy, or yellow, which represents happiness. Or choose a bold gold rose to symbolize passion and excitement. Also consider colors that the bride might enjoy — this way you can choose flowers for bridal shower tables that truly reflect the guest of honor.

Other Bridal Shower Flowers

Carnations

Known as the flower of the gods, carnations have ruffled petals and a plush bloom. To help fill the coming marriage with intentions of luck and love, consider decorating the bridal shower with white carnations. You can also choose from a wide range of colors, many with different symbolism. Pink carnations, for instance, symbolize gratitude. Just make sure not to gift or use yellow carnations for bridal flower centerpiece flowers as these flowers are related to feelings of disappointment and rejection.

Orchids

Symbolizing both beauty and strength, orchids are a beautiful addition to any bridal shower. They help to celebrate a happy marriage and add a touch of sophistication to any venue. We recommend you add these flowers to any bridal centerpiece to add a touch of sophistication to the event.
