While the ceremony is arguably the most important part of your wedding day, the reception is the part we all look forward to. It’s a chance to relax with your favourite people in a beautiful setting, enjoy delicious food and reflect on this momentous moment in life. It’s such a special part of the day and can be anything you want it to be, from an intimate meal to a formal banquet in a grand chateau, and everything in between.
Whatever style of wedding reception you choose, we can all agree that it must be beautiful and thoughtfully curated to create a true sense of occasion and make your guests feel welcome. David Austin Wedding Roses are the perfect addition to your wedding reception decor and there’s endless ways to style them. Read on for our pick of rose wedding reception ideas to inspire you.
Rose Tree Centrepieces
Dreaming of a dramatic wedding reception? Bespoke rose trees created in your wedding colour palette by your florist are the way to go. If budget allows, one rose tree on every table creates the ultimate wow factor, alternatively one on the top table or a couple framing the entrance to your reception space also look spectacular.
English Country Garden Wedding Reception
Inspired by late spring days sipping tea in an English country garden, a lush floral table runner of seasonal blooms in soft pastel shades is a romantic and feminine choice. Blush pink, pale lilac and powder blue are the perfect colours for a dreamy wedding reception that will totally immerse your guests in the season. Keira, Charity or Purity are perfect wedding roses to achieve this look.

Outdoor Wedding Reception With Floral Pergola
If you’re celebrating your wedding in an open outdoor space, creating a structure to drape fabric and display flowers is great for creating drama and a real sense of occasion. Take inspiration from the surrounding landscape for your colour palette and embrace greenery to make your reception space feel at one with the surroundings.
Colourful Wedding Reception With Pink Roses
As much as we love white and muted colours, bright wedding receptions always bring joy and a fun celebratory vibe. The key to using bold colours in a stylish way is creating a considered palette where different colours don’t fight for attention. The interior design ratio of 60:40:10 is a good place to start – where 60% of the design is a dominant colour, 30% is a secondary colour and the remaining 10% is an accent hue. We love this Mexican-themed summer styling with Miranda as our leading dominant rose colour supported by the softer, painterly pink of Constance.
Floral Terrarium Centrepieces
Looking for something a little different? Inspired by botanical studies, beautiful roses and seasonal flowers displayed in glass terrariums make striking centrepieces with a graphic modern feel as seen here with Charity.
