I am getting married on the beach in Bahamas next weekend- and my groom will be wearing a lavender rose boutinerre. So, no experience yet, but I’ll let you know my experience after the fact! 🙂

Some roses do open faster than others, but open roses are just as pretty as closed roses (they’re even prettier IMO!).

Here’s an example of a closed rose bout, and an open rose bout:

As long as you don’t have a problem with them opening sooner than white ones do, I say go for it!  I would.

ETA-  There are a lot of contributing factors to how fast a flowers open or droop as well (weather, being touched, etc).  While I’ve never experienced a huge difference between white and lavender roses opening at different times, I do know that lavender roses usually smell slighty sweeter!
