GERBERA'S and SUNFLOWER BOUQUETS

This page features wedding flowers made with popular gerberas and sunflowers.

 

Using these daisy-style flowers gives a more casual feeling to your wedding flowers, great for a garden wedding or for those brides looking for a less formal affair.

 

Sunflowers are a more unusual choice for bridal flowers (yellow is not very commonly used in bridal flowers) but you can see they look stunning.


I love designing with Gerberas - if you have questions about Your gerbera wedding flowers, then please do ask - Wedding Designer - Jo - I would be delighted to help.

helpful tips and hints

Gerberas have a semi-soft hollow stem. I always use a supporting wire on my gerberas before using them in wedding flowers to ensure they last the whole day and into the night.

 

You dont want flowers going limp and floppy on you as you head into the evening.

 

For those Brides on a budget - Gerbera's are a fabulous choice - they are large flowers so it doesn't take too many to make a bouquet - they are available all year round, and come in a huge range of colour options and 2 sizes - Standard and mini.

 

 

 

What Colour do Gerbera's come in?

 

Answer - What colour would you like???

colour choices for gerbera daisies

 

Seriously - Gerberas come in a HUGE range of colour choices, but not purple or Blue.

There are light and dark shades in every colour hue so you are sure to find the perfect one to match your palette.

Many colours have a choice of either green centres or dark chocolate brown centres, so this gives us even more fun when colour matching!

White gerbera bouquet with touch of pink for bride

For Charlotte's pretty spring wedding we used
white gerberas, snowball, white lilac and a touch of pale pink roses. I love the soft green touches!

 

 

 

hot pink gerbera bouquets against spring green bridesmaids dressesHi Jo - The flowers were amazing and everyone commented on them. I ended up giving my bouquet to my sister (my chief bridesmaid) and she ended up catching hers (which I threw) because she liked it so much! She actually wrestled another girl for her bouquet. Must have been the rugby fever! 

Thanks for doing such beautiful flowers for me for my wedding, they were amazing.
They also lasted SO well right through the night!
I will be sure to let you know if I need flowers for anything, you’ll be the only person I’ll be calling on.
Kind regards Charlotte
