What flowers can you recommend to create the ultimate romantic atmosphere?

When it comes to romance you can’t go wrong with roses. Available all year round in many different colours, you should easily be able to find something to suit your palette. They look great on their own or mixed with seasonal stars such as peonies or dahlias. You can also get petal-heavy garden roses, such as David Austin varieties, that more closely resemble peonies than roses. 

The cost of seasonal favourites can vary dramatically, so to keep things affordable, mix with the classic rose, which is fairly stable in price. What’s more, if there are quality issues with seasonal blooms, the mix can be adjusted accordingly. 

It’s no wonder that roses are the most popular wedding flower. Found throughout mythology and fairytales as a metaphor for passion and romance, they’ve been a symbol of love for many a year.
