although different colours of roses mean different things, it's nothing to take too serious. the reason to why colours 'mean' different things is due to tradition, in the victorian era the flower language was important! using the flower language as a guideline could definietly act as a help, but if you really want to give someone yellow flowers, even though it's a love interest, do it! maybe yellow roses are someones favourite flower.

there might come out a part two to this rose guide, containing a guide of other flowers, and the secret language of flowers. however, if you need something to read now (and outfit ideas) you could definietly check out my recent article -
