Gerbera Daisy Crazy! Centerpiece, Bouquet, Invite Daisies To Your Wedding!

Wedding magazines are full of breathtakingly beautiful flower arrangement photos. Bouquets good enough to eat. And they are, actually. Though stunning, for the price of one of those arrangements, you could feed a family of five for a week.

The magazines sometimes just aren’t in touch with reality when it comes to the fact that there are brides on budgets out there.  And while the trend of all baby’s breath arrangements is very “couture” in the eye of some beholders, it causes allergic sneezing in the noses of others. Besides, there’s no color there whatsoever. What’s a bride to do for centerpieces?

Enter the Gerbera Daisy.  Also known as the Gerber Daisy, these sweet and bright flowers exude sunshine. They come in a wide range of colors, and are reasonably priced.  Don’t be fooled by a florist who tells you they are too casual, Gerberas can be as elegant as you want them to be. Uses abound! The heads are sculptural, and look great in floating centerpieces with candles. The stems are sturdy so they can stand tall. They line up like little soldiers, or can be shaped into soft groupings. All sorts of options for wonderful wedding centerpieces with Gerber daisies.

So get to it! Go crazy with Daisies!

Internet-searching brides are still wild about centerpieces!

Centerpieces, wedding centerpieces, orchid centerpieces. However they want to phrase it, it’s driving brides and shoppers to our website in search of wedding centerpiece ideas.  “Centerpiece” related search terms have been lighting up our statistics like crazy! So in order to make sure that they find the wedding centerpiece nirvana our readers seek, I’m posting photos from the eponymous section of the website with descriptions, and a little of the wedding centerpiece style inspiration behind them. No cookie-cutter floral design company catalog type jobs here… Enjoy!

Roses and fresh herbs in terra cotta pots add rustic beauty to an outdoor celebration

Imagine this at an afternoon wedding at a ranch or tuscan style villa.  Casual elegance can be just as “fancy” as black tie – it’s all in the attitude.

Tall calla lillies make an elegant statement for a modern bride.

These days, with interior design promoting mid-century modern and minimalist looks, a lot of brides worry about centerpiece flowers being too frilly, too “foo-foo.”  Modern looks can be achieved – and can be gorgeous.

Not every bride wants to color inside the lines. Or have everything be matchy-matchy. Maybe  pops of yellow make you or your groom smile, who knows what your inspiration might be? Let it out…we can work with you to make your vision come to life.

By now you’ve gotten the central centerpiece message.  Your wedding centerpiece can be whatever you want it to be.  Don’t let someone point at something in a book and lock you into a design if you don’t love it! The only thing that should be cookie cutter about your wedding? Cookies. And that’s only if you want to serve them. In order to be fabulous, you’ve got to be yourself.

Be well, and love well!
