The flower language of roses: the hidden meaning behind each shade

Roses are still one of the most prominent wedding flowers chosen couples to feature in their big-day styling. But how do you know which colour rose to get? Luckily for you, each colour has a specific meaning, and depending on the occasion, one will be better suited than the other.

During the Victorian era, flower language, also known as floriography, gained prominence. Flowers, especially roses, were used to convey a secret message without having to speak. This tradition has carried through today, and roses are much appreciated as a stand-alone gift, as well as a sentimental complement to a main present.

The gemstone jeweller Angelic Diamonds has ranked the most popular colour roses in the UK based on Google search volumes and reveals the hidden messages behind each to help you find the perfect one.

Don't leave me hanging

Yeti & The Fox is a simple yet effective pharmaceutical-free solution to the dreaded hangover. With many couples choosing to opt for hangover survival kit-style wedding favours (we love this idea) Yeti & The Fox is a must-have addition. Here comes the science bit! S-acetyl gluthione is the body's main natural antioxidant and immune system booster helping the body stay healthy. When combined with N-acetyl cysteine and vitamin B6, it becomes highly effective and fighting toxins ingested via food and drink. Glutathione is in fact needed by our bodies to break down toxic substance acetaldehyde the offending substance produced as alcohol is broken down by the liver. It's also to blame for liver damage and many of the most hideous symptoms experienced during a hangover. So, with the acetaldehyde-busting ingredient glutathione being at the core of Yeti & Fox it's clear to see why it works!
