The significance of the rose as a symbol of romance, and its use as a messaging system in courtship and dating has endured since the 19th century. Throughout the 20th century, sending roses has been a timeless way to express love for another. We have seen it endure in popular culture, with a single red rose (either long-stemmed or a boutonniere) being the prize that allows a contestant on The Bachelor(ette) to continue in the quest to win the heart of a lucky lady or man. The rose also symbolizes romance in Beauty and the Beast, with a single rose shedding petals until the Beast can learn to love another and be loved in return.
Whether it be a single red rose given on a date or an entire bouquet of roses sent for Valentine’s Day, there’s still no simpler way to convey romance than through bouquets of roses. A tradition that dates back to ancient times, proving that when it comes down to it, romance and love are some of our oldest, most prized experiences.
