Wedding Flowers Shine with the Addition of Gerberas
Gerbera daisies have recently risen in popularity as wedding flowers, and for good reason. The blooms are gorgeous and come in a large variety of colors to match just about any wedding theme.
What are Gerberas?
If you are not familiar with the flowers, gerberas are not your typical small, white daisy. The flowers are much larger; usually around 3-5 inches across the bloom. The center of the flower is quite large and has a strikingly contrasting color to the petals.
The stems are thick tubes with no foliage on it whatsoever, making them perfect for use in wedding bouquets and reception table flower arrangements alike. They are related to sunflowers and they have the same cheerful and sunny appearance.
Available for Weddings Year-Round
Gerberas have multiple flowering cycles, which make them a perfect wedding choice pretty much year round. Prices are quite reasonable since they are in season throughout the year.
Gerbera Daisies Wedding Bouquet
Gerbera daisies work well for bouquets both on their own as well as mixed with greenery and/or other flowers. Bouquets made solely from gerberas form a rounded shape which is simply attractive. Paired with roses, they make a striking and complex looking bouquet. Because the flowers are bold and relatively large, they can be put together with many interestingly textured plants including flat leaved greenery, berries and colorful flower accents.
It’s hard to say exactly what the appeal of gerberas is, but they do make a statement. The flowers are bold but feminine at the same time. The colors are bright but not gaudy. They compliment both casual and formal weddings. They are suitable for summer weddings, but also for winter ones in the right colors.
