18 Gerber Daisy Bouquets

11. White daisy and rose brides bouquet.

A gerber daisy wedding bouquet can be a visual delight to the eyes in its vibrant colors. The colors range from hot pinks, reds, yellows to the softer shades of pinks, and whites and other paler shades.

I love hot colors, and this is what a gerber wedding bouquet can give. The colors advance towards your eye, they are always spectacularly striking and vibrant.

When clustered or grouped together they are dynamic and dramatic. The hot color range gives you a creative flair that has no limits.

One of the hottest colors is yellow (the color of the sun), it radiates warmth wherever it goes.

Many of the yellows are referred to as gold shades (these would be perfect to use if you want to use gold wedding flowers); these add a depth and richness to any bouquet.

A simple bouquet of three gerberas tied together with an organza bow will make a very nice simple bouquet and it is something that you can do yourself.

The gerber daisy can be used as a simple clutch posy or combined with other flowers. Add drama to a bouquet and arrangements, mix oranges, steel blues, and yellows for your wedding day flowers.

When making your bouquet, handle the gerberas with care, avoid excessive handling of the flowers as they can bruise. The gerbera daisy is a fairly hardy flower. Store them in a jar of fresh water right up to the last minute to keep them looking at their best.

42 Stunning Orchid Bouquets

An orchid wedding bouquet is beautiful with the exotic shape of the flower. The arrangements can be made in the pale shades or the vibrant colors it offers.

It brings a hint of magic to any occasion. As a cut flower it is long lasting, either for wedding table centerpiece arrangement or in a bridal bouquet.

Orchids make up one of the largest families in the plant kingdom with over 20 000 species. In the nineteenth century, they were very much sought after for their exquisite beauty.

Orchids have always been considered a luxury. Orchids are a beautiful and fragrant flower with a wide variety of colors to choose from allowing you to create many different bridal bouquet designs as you can see from the images below.

The commercially grown varieties of orchids can take up to six years before they start to flower and then only produce about four stems of flowers a year.

Some people shy away from using orchids because they think that orchid is a fragile flower, but this is not the case, there are many varieties which will work extremely well in a bridal bouquet.

These varieties include the Phallaenopisi, the Denbrodium, the Cymbidium and the Cattleya. The orchid fits in well for a tropical or beach theme wedding.

Orchids can be expensive so if you are on a tight budget and still would like to have orchids for you bridal bouquet, consider mixing them with other flowers such as roses, daisies and filler flowers or greenery to your arrangement which will create a large and fuller looking bridal bouquet or keep the arrangement small and simple for an all orchid bouquet.

Sunflower bouquets can be stylish on their own or mixed with other flowers. There are many advantages of bouquets with sunflowers.

Sunflowers have large strong stems making them ideal in a presentation bouquet and because of the size of the flower head you don’t need to use many to make a beautiful bridal bouquet.

The sunflower is also a hardy plant which can stay fresh looking for long periods of time.

You also do have a choice when it comes to size a color. The sunflower is available in mini to giant size with colors ranging from lemon yellow to gold, pink to red and cream to brown.

The small varieties work well when mixed in with other flowers in complimentary colors such as carnations, roses and chrysanthemums.

You can make a simple stylish hand tied bridal bouquet by using just 3 or 5 large sunflowers.

13 Tulip Bouquet Ideas

Tulip wedding bouquet arrangements are among one of the most popular choices for a spring wedding.

Freshly picked tulips create a sense of beauty and color such as the bride’s beauty on her special day.

You can chose from a wide variety of colors from strong reds to soft whites with almost every color in between.

Try and picture your wedding with an all white tulip wedding flower theme for either an indoor or outdoor wedding.

You could go wild by decorating the aisles, door frames and walls in different varieties of white tulips.

For more drama choose tulips in a dark shade, they would be a sophisticated accent for any wedding.

Tulips can be arranged into almost any wedding bouquet style from round, cascading, or clutch. Tulips are a long lasting flower because they retain moisture for a long time.

If you are making your own tulip bridal bouquet here are something"s to remember:

  1. Tulips are a thirsty flower, so it is important that you condition your flowers before your wedding day, cut the stems and allow them to stand in plenty of fresh water to ensure that they soak up the water.
  2. Tulips are the only flower that will continue to grow when cut and placed in water. The tulip can grown up to 5cm (2 inches) which can alter the look of a mixed floral display if you have prepared it a day or so in advance. This will not be so noticeable in an informal arrangement of a bouquet made of only tulips.
  3. Tulips are also sensitive to temperature, this can be a problem if you place your flowers to early in a warm venue. Try to keep the them cool for as long as possible to prevent the the tulip from fully opening.

40 Hand Tied Bouquet Ideas

Wedding bouquet in warm orange tones.
110. Fall toned flowers.

Hand tied bouquets can look casual or formal and can be used to create a number or common bridal bouquet styles such as a presentation bouquet, posy bouquet, round bouquet and the Victorian wedding flowers called tussy mussy which these where often used to convey a message to the receiver.

The hand tied bouquet is a style that most brides and florist prefer; it is also a very easy bridal bouquet design if you want to make your own bridal bouquet as it is very easy to assemble.

If you choose to make your own bridal bouquet you should make a practice bouquet before your wedding day.

Generally this type of wedding flower design holds about 15 flower stems, but this will vary depending on the types of wedding flowers you are using, even the bridal bouquet style and the size of your bouquet and your bridesmaids.

You can use anywhere from one dozen (posy size) to two or three dozen and more for a large bouquet.

The stems are usually cut to 30cm (12 inches) however this can vary depending on your own personal taste and the bridal bouquet design. When deciding on a suitable length do a test; by cutting one stem a little at time and test the length with both your hands. When you have got the correct size, use this as a guide for cutting the other flower stems.

To keep your flowers fresh place the bouquet stems in water, keep it soaking for as long as possible. When you are ready to use it use a towel to dry of the ends so that the water will not stain your dress.

The type of wrapping that you use on your hand tied bridal bouquets will have a big effect on how it looks. You can wrap a satin ribbon all the way down the stems for a formal look, or leave a portion of the stems bare.
