The Ritzy Rose is a handcrafted American brand. We specialize in wedding signs and brooch bouquets. Everything is created by The Ritzy Rose team in our studio just outside of Columbus, Ohio. The Ritzy Rose has been a part of thousands of weddings around the world since 2010, providing our brides unique accessories for their big day. As our family has grown so has our selection of signage, now including all of life's moments such as baby announcements, first birthdays, graduations, holidays and anytime we want to say more with our pictures.
In the months following Jen and Jason's 2010 wedding we began to conceptualize our dream of breaking away from the corporate world. We wanted to create products that were personal to our customers. Through eCommerce the team is still delivering that personal touch of making each order as they come through.
Brooch Bouquets quickly became The Ritzy Rose's signature item. Jen was introduced to The Junk Gypsies through a few tweets, and shortly after Miranda Lambert chose Jen to create her brooch bouquet with pieces from friends and family. Once the bouquet was seen all over the press, the brooch bouquet trend and Ritzy Rose made their mark. Click here to see The Ritzy Rose in the news.
Contrary to the practically overnight success of our bouquets is the steady growth of our signature wedding sign collection. The Ritzy Rose put our mark on this trend by providing a well crafted flag style sign in modern fonts and colors. Ring bearers and flower girls have carried "Here Comes the Bride" down the aisle in everything from rustic barn weddings to chic California vineyard weddings. The signs have now been a part of thousands of weddings across the world.
All item are created in The Ritzy Rose studio by our small design team. Signs are printed, sewn, trimmed, packaged and shipped each day as orders come through. Bouquets are created through working with every bride and hand wired and made one at a time. Producing the final goods just for you helps keep to our initial vision.
Jen is the force behind the graphic designs. Her extensive experience allows her to continually come out with fresh designs as well as work with individuals on more personal custom orders. Our design vision follows trends in wedding and fashion. As important as getting your order out the door quickly and accurately is making sure we never stop creating.
The Ritzy Rose creates all of our items in our Pickerington, Ohio facility. In 2017 we strived to be better. We went out demanding more and came back with great American products. Our paper is made in the USA from North American sustainably forested trees. Our ribbon (with the exception of gold & silver) is made in the USA. Our custom boxes and wooden dowels are all made in the USA as well. For bouquets we source vintage whenever possible to still achieve the right look.
In June of 2010 while on their honeymoon the conversation of a business began. By July the conversation evolved to naming the business. Jen and Jason wanted to create a brand, not just a product. The name had to be able to be far reaching and not pin them in a corner. One word was easy: "Rose". It was Jen's maiden name. Then the journey began to find a partner for the word Rose. Their love for the 1920s led them to look up vernacular from The Great Gatsby, and the word "Ritzy" jumped out out at them. There it was: The Ritzy Rose.
In 2013 The Ritzy Rose became a Registered Trademark by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
