The rose wedding is usually celebrated big – and rightly so! We show you beautiful gift ideas, sayings and give you inspiration for your outfit!
Importance of the Rose Wedding
The married couple celebrate a rose wedding on the 10th wedding anniversary (here you can find an overview of the wedding anniversaries). Why roses? Roses as a symbol of love would fit to every wedding day. But roses are not only a romantic picture, with their thorns they are also symbolic for the challenges of the married couple in the past ten years – which they mastered together.
Rose wedding: the customs
A common custom for the rose wedding is to decorate the entrance door of the jubilant couple with a wreath of roses. It is also a tradition that the husband gives his wife 10 red roses (the other way around, of course, it is also possible 😉). It is also a custom to plant a rose tree in the garden.
Rose wedding anniversary: the cake

You’ve found the perfect dress and gift, now all you need is a matching saying or a beautiful poem for the greeting card. Let these ideas inspire you:
“Marriage is like a rose: it needs a lot of care and attention. Otherwise it withers.” (unknown)
“10 years you’ve walked together through thick and thin – that deserves special recognition. Congratulations on the rose wedding!” (unknown)
“Ten years have passed since you went down the aisle. Time flew by, now it’s time again: We congratulate you from the bottom of our hearts and light the colorful candles, wish you with many roses a new wild love roar! And if once the thorns disturb you, don’t let them beguile you. For truly, you are a great couple – so stay cheerful year after year.” (unknown)
“Ten years, a proud number!
Accept the bouquet of roses.
Like your happiness of love so beautiful,
the flower queen also blooms.
No rose tree is without Dorn´
even if you don’t like it.
And a marriage without worry,
gibt´s not in this world.
May the rose continue to be with you,
a noble sign of love.
Just like the flower queen,
shall blossom you,
happiness for all time.” (unknown)
“After ten years of marriage:
The anniversary of the Rose is celebrated.
There you look back on life as a couple
and he realizes: I almost pissed my pants!
But without thorn’ there is no Ros’
even if you don’t like it.
And a marriage without a sorrowful lot,
There’s nothing like that in this world.
A decade ago they united,
I haven’t given up yet.
Laughed together and not a little cried,
you want to continue to live your marriage.
Therefore the rose is like a symbol.
And not only, one wants to look at it,
I suppose one remembers the words already spoken:
I will love, honour and respect you.” (Susanne Pilastro)
And when the beautiful celebration is over, the couple can look forward to the coming marriage years – and to the silver wedding anniversary and the golden wedding 😀.
