Flowers are a major theme of most weddings. Gerbera daisies are youthful flowers to use for an informal wedding. They come in several different colours and can likely match almost any wedding's colour theme. Many beautiful and useful wedding ideas incorporate gerbera daisies, such as bouquets, centrepieces and favour boxes.
Gerbera daisies can be used to make beautiful bouquets for the bride and the ladies in her bridal party. Use different colour daisies in different bouquets to make them distinct. For example, use one colour daisy to make the maid of honour bouquet. Use another colour daisy to make the bridesmaid bouquets, and then mix the two colours to create the bride's bouquet.
Gerbera daisies can also be used to make corsages and boutonnières for the groom, groomsman and anyone else who is closely involved with the wedding, such as the parents of the bride and groom. The bride's bouquet should match the groom's boutonnière while the maid of honour and bridesmaid bouquets should match the respective groomsmen's boutonnières.
Gerbera daisies have long stems and are just sturdy enough to make beautiful and lasting centrepieces. Use gerbera daisies and coloured candy pieces to make colourful centrepieces. Simply fill the bottom of a tall vase with coloured candy pieces. Stick the stems of a few gerbera daisies in the vase. The candy will hold up the flowers throughout the entire wedding reception. The candy can be the same colour as the daisy petals or a complementary colour. Tie a decorative ribbon around the outside of the vase to finish off this colourful centrepiece.
Favours are little gifts from the bride and groom to their guest to show their appreciation. Many favours come in favour boxes. Gerbera daisies can be used to create simple yet beautiful favour boxes that guests will be happy to take home. Tie a colourful ribbon around the filled favour box with a simple bow on top. Then slip the shortened stem of a gerbera daisy through the ribbon. You can also glue a flower on top if you want it to be more secure. The latter method works better with silk flowers than with real ones.
