Whether you choose Shasta, gerbera or any other type of daisy, this simple, delicate flower signifies a simple and sweet love. A wedding bouquet made of daisies can be styled with a rustic, picked-fresh-from-the-meadow appearance or manicured with ribbons, rhinestones and bows. Daisies are versatile and hearty and look fresh for hours out of water, making them popular for wedding bouquets.
Yellow and White Daisies
Choose a wedding bouquet of Shasta daisies to complement pastel-yellow bridesmaid dresses, or an all-white wedding. The classic lemon-yellow centres and white daisy petals also contrast nicely against light mint-green or pastel-blue bridal colours. To add more yellow to the bouquet, try Dahlberg daisies which produce both yellow petals and centres. For a close alternative, choose gloriosa daisies, also known as black-eyed Susans, for their robust yellow petals and dark brown centres.
Since there are many varieties of daisies, it's not difficult to find the simple flower in a shade to coordinate with the wedding. Have a bouquet of orange, crimson and yellow African daisies created for a fall wedding. Spring and summer brides may prefer a bouquet of pink, purple or white English daisies. Accent them with sprigs of white baby's breath and greenery for a classic look.
These popular large-head daisies come in a variety of robust yellow, pink, orange and red varieties. A bouquet of deep red gerbera daisies is a perfect complement to a winter wedding featuring holiday colours such as red, green, gold and silver. Orange, red and yellow gerbera daisies make beautiful fall wedding bouquets.
The simplicity of a daisy complements many popular bouquet flowers including roses, mums and full-blossomed hydrangeas. Try mixing white roses with pink gerbera daisies, or red roses with white Shasta daisies for a romantic appeal. Mixing different varieties of daisies also creates beautiful wedding bouquets. The large blossom of a yellow gerbera daisy is striking against the petite head of a white and yellow Shasta daisy.
Styling the Bouquet
Since daisies often remind brides of groves of wildflowers, bouquets assembled in a loose style and tied with raffia ribbon have a rustic appeal. Leaving the stems long, untrimmed and at various lengths gives the illusion of a fresh-picked bouquet. For a more manicured look, have the florist wrap the stems with satin ribbon to coordinate with the bridesmaid dresses. The ribbon can flow from the stems, or end in a bow. Add clip-on butterflies or sticky-backed craft rhinestones to the centre of a few of the daisies for an elegant touch.
