White roses represent humility, purity and innocence, making them perfect for weddings and engagements. The white rose - often referred to as the bridal rose - is associated with pure love. The white rose is seen as a token of early marriage, given to loved ones on their wedding day. White roses also symbolize truth and reverence and send a message of loyalty. Fresh and pure white roses can also rekindle affections between longtime lovers. In addition to being used as wedding flowers, white roses can also be used as Sympathy flowers to honor the passing of a loved one. They are crisp and elegant in all occasions, and pair well with other colored roses to customize the message being sent.
In mythology, Aphrodite, the Goddess of love, emerged at birth from the foaming sea. The sea foam fell from her and where it touched the earth, white roses started to grow. When she was older she ran to help her wounded lover Adonis and caught her flesh on the thorns of a white rose bush. Her blood turned the roses red. In mythology, this displays the dual nature of love: white roses displaying her purity and innocence and the change to red roses representing her passion and experience.
