Christin & John - Gorgeous Gerbers

My daughter's favorite flowers are gerber daisies. We both love them. So when Christin said that she wants a "gerber daisy wedding" I was thrilled to accommodate her. We used them for bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces in a variety of ways. And I loved that we in incorporated a variety of pink shades along with lavender, white, and yellow. What a cheerful, happy flower they are! Christin couldn't have anything less than a cheerful, happy wedding!

Christin's bouquet was made up of bright pink roses, white gerber daisies with purple pins in their centers, and accents of purple statice. John wore a pink rose boutonniere.

Bridesmaids carried bright pink gerber daisies mixed with Moonshade carnations.

The flower girl carried a basket of pink and purple flowers with blue accent ribbon.

Christin's mom stenciled a windowbox in bright colors. I filled it with wheatgrass and then scattered gerber daisies, bees, a grasshopper, and ladybugs throughout the grass. I then created a clothesline and "pinned" pictures of Christin and John along the line.

Christin collected various bottles for one of her centerpieces. I put different colors of gerber daisies in them and then grouped them together in the center of the table. The second type of centerpiece was made up of a mix of colored gerbers in glass bowls. I used a variety of colored acrylics in the bottom of each.
