Bridal bouquet

Wedding bouquet of gerberas - the perfect complement to the image of the bride

The image of the bride is impos­si­ble to imag­ine with­out a bou­quet. This detail is very impor­tant and sig­nif­i­cant. The choice of flow­ers is now huge, the mod­ern bride has unlim­it­ed oppor­tu­ni­ties to cre­ate a unique flower arrange­ment. Among this vari­ety, ger­beras stand out favor­ably. Sim­i­lar in shape to a huge chamomile, with neat petals, an expres­sive cen­ter and a great abun­dance of col­or options, these flow­ers are con­quer­ing more and more wom­en’s hearts.

Features and Benefits

It would seem, how can such a sim­ple flower com­pete with more expen­sive, clas­sic and rare spec­i­mens? The secret of such pop­u­lar­i­ty is part­ly hid­den in the advan­tages and fea­tures that char­ac­ter­ize the wed­ding bou­quet of ger­beras.

  • Regard­less of when the wed­ding takes place, these flow­ers can be pur­chased at any time of the year.
  • High dura­bil­i­ty and abil­i­ty for a long time (up to sev­er­al weeks) to main­tain its orig­i­nal appear­ance. You can buy a bou­quet for a wed­ding in advance, while the flow­ers will look like fresh­ly cut.
  • Afford­able cost allows you to order a chic com­po­si­tion and at the same time save some part of the bud­get.
  • The easy process of cre­at­ing bou­quets allows you to save on the ser­vices of a florist. Any girl can eas­i­ly cre­ate a com­po­si­tion for a wed­ding look on her own.
  • A wide range of col­ors and shades allows you to choose the per­fect col­or com­bi­na­tion.
  • Excel­lent com­pat­i­bil­i­ty with oth­er col­ors allows you to go beyond mono-bou­quets.
  • Dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments must be select­ed care­ful­ly, since not all of them will “get along” next to such expres­sive col­ors.
  • A ger­bera porter is not need­ed, which makes the com­po­si­tion eas­i­er.
  • A wide choice of a form of a bou­quet.
  • Ger­bera has no age restric­tions, it is equal­ly well suit­ed to brides of any age.
  • Lack of smell is an impor­tant con­di­tion for aller­gy suf­fer­ers. More­over, any smell, even pleas­ant and beloved, can get bored for a long time and even cause poor health. This will not hap­pen with ger­beras.

Creation rules

Bou­quets of ger­beras must be made accord­ing to cer­tain rules, used by all florists.

  • The com­po­si­tion may con­tain no more than three vari­eties of flow­ers.
  • The bright­est and largest ele­ments are locat­ed in the cen­tral part.
  • Shades for the bou­quet are select­ed in accor­dance with the image of the bride and the over­all style of the cel­e­bra­tion.
  • Togeth­er with ger­beras, you can use dec­o­ra­tive green­ery, but you should refuse large, expres­sive and bright arti­fi­cial dec­o­ra­tions, since the bou­quet can turn out to be awk­ward and taste­less.
  • As for the shape, sev­er­al options are accept­able: round, spher­i­cal and cas­cade. In oth­er forms, these round large flow­ers will look awk­ward.
  • Poman­der — a spher­i­cal bou­quet with­out a stem, which is fixed on a rib­bon, is a mod­ern solu­tion. African daisies are great for such arrange­ments.

Selection rules

Every detail is impor­tant when cre­at­ing the image of the bride. Not a sin­gle nuance can be over­looked. In order for the bou­quet to blend per­fect­ly with her image, you must adhere to the fol­low­ing rules:

  • tall girls should pay atten­tion to cas­cad­ing bou­quets;
  • brides with short stature are bet­ter off choos­ing round-shaped com­po­si­tions;
  • pas­tel flow­ers and del­i­cate com­bi­na­tions are well suit­ed for fair-haired brides;
  • brunettes can choose white and bright flow­ers;
  • brown-haired women and red-haired girls need to take into account their col­or type and select the appro­pri­ate flow­ers (cold col­or type — a cool range of shades).

The bou­quet must be in har­mo­ny with the dress. There are also sev­er­al secrets and rules here.

  • The closed form of the dress with a strict style allows you to cre­ate a bou­quet of mul­ti-col­ored flow­ers. They can be com­ple­ment­ed by oth­er flow­ers and plants.
  • The boho style seems to be made for a bou­quet of African daisies. They are best able to empha­size eth­nic motifs.
  • A coun­try-style wed­ding allows you to choose a com­bi­na­tion of chrysan­the­mums and ger­beras.
  • A lace dress requires a choice of white flow­ers. In this case, the fragili­ty of the image and the inno­cence of the bride will be empha­sized.
  • African daisy looks good in an image cre­at­ed on the basis of straight lines, which are present in both the dress and the hair­style.

Combinations with other colors

With ger­beras, you can cre­ate dif­fer­ent com­po­si­tions: sim­ple and clas­sic, mod­est and ele­gant, large and small, unusu­al and extrav­a­gant. We have select­ed the most suc­cess­ful exam­ples that can inspire and help solve the prob­lem of choice.

Mono-bou­quets, which con­sist only of ger­beras, look con­cise. The stems are tied with a rib­bon, which can be in har­mo­ny with the dress or act as a bright, con­trast­ing ele­ment. You can stop at one shade or make an ombre style bou­quet. For the lat­ter option, sev­er­al close shades of dif­fer­ent sat­u­ra­tion are select­ed.

Ger­beras go well with ros­es. There are a lot of options here. Bright natures can choose bou­quets of white ger­beras, com­ple­ment­ed by red ros­es. For more del­i­cate and sen­su­al brides, com­bi­na­tions of dif­fer­ent col­ors are more suit­able, but in one shade. Unusu­al options are obtained from pur­ple African daisies and white ros­es.

You can add chrysan­the­mums to bou­quets. These two flow­ers are sim­i­lar in shape but dif­fer in size. Such bou­quets are lush, look rich and are a real dec­o­ra­tion for the bride. White chrysan­the­mums and pink ger­beras go well with a white dress. For more vivid images, you can pick up daisies in orange, red, yel­low shades for white chrysan­the­mums. Green flow­ers in white bou­quets look inter­est­ing.

Hemi­spher­i­cal options look inter­est­ing and even some­what unusu­al. To cre­ate them, white flow­ers are select­ed, which are com­ple­ment­ed by one bright and large ger­bera.

Lily is anoth­er flower that looks gor­geous next to large daisies. Lilies have a del­i­cate aro­ma, this nuance should be tak­en into account when choos­ing a bou­quet. Dark ger­beras and light lilies can be ordered under a white dress. An inter­est­ing com­bi­na­tion is obtained from large fuch­sia daisies and pink lilies with a white edge. Orange and red large round flow­ers can be com­bined with lilies in orange or brindle col­ors.

Alstroe­me­rias are African flow­ers that are becom­ing very pop­u­lar, in par­tic­u­lar for cre­at­ing bridal bou­quets. They look very gen­tle and ele­gant. Pas­tel alstroe­me­rias are com­bined with dif­fer­ent ger­beras, you can choose both light and bright flow­ers. There can be a lot of options, and each of them will be unique and inter­est­ing in its own way.

With the choice of decor you need to be care­ful. It is impor­tant not to over­load the com­po­si­tion. Here are some tips for this:

  • fresh herbs are always an option;
  • rhine­stones, beads are often locat­ed on the stem or petals, in the lat­ter case they cre­ate an imi­ta­tion of dew;
  • berries are rel­e­vant in a bou­quet that is cre­at­ed for an autumn wed­ding;
  • sprigs of conif­er­ous trees can be added to win­ter bou­quets;
  • for a com­po­si­tion for a spring wed­ding, you can use wil­low branch­es as a decor;
  • for the legs you need to choose nat­ur­al fab­rics, so the flow­ers will breathe freely and stay fresh longer;
  • arti­fi­cial but­ter­flies, doves, hearts can also par­tic­i­pate in the process of cre­at­ing a bou­quet, but here it is impor­tant to observe a sense of pro­por­tion (one fig­ure will be enough);
  • the leg can be dec­o­rat­ed with beads, shiny ele­ments, lace, unusu­al fab­rics.

Do it yourself

Mak­ing a bou­quet your­self is not a prob­lem, even if you have no floris­tic expe­ri­ence. It is nec­es­sary to act as fol­lows.

  • We pre­pare in advance the nec­es­sary ele­ments for future work: flow­ers, spe­cial top dress­ing, decor, wire, which is used by florists, a frame, a rib­bon.
  • We cut the stems of all flow­ers at an acute angle and place them in water with dilut­ed top dress­ing.
  • African daisies have a heavy head, which requires the use of a frame­work. In this case, the flow­ers will not wilt and will look fresh until the end of the wed­ding.
  • We col­lect the sat­u­rat­ed flow­ers into a sin­gle com­po­si­tion. In the cen­tral part we have the largest and bright­est flower. We place oth­er flow­ers around it, focus­ing on our taste and com­bi­na­tion of shades.
  • We add green­ery and decor to the flow­ers.
  • We fix the stems of plants with a wire.
  • We wrap the leg of the bou­quet with a rib­bon and add decor if nec­es­sary.
