You can easily make a wedding bouquet with Gerbera Daisies in your choice of color. Be sure to buy from a reputable flower farm so that the flowers are delivered to you in dry pack form, ready to process and design.
Read the fine print before ordering. Buying wholesale doesn't necessarily mean you get a cheaper price, it just means you buy directly from the farm and have to buy in the same bulk quantities that a floral wholesaler would have to purchase. This could end up costing you more money if you purchase more flowers than you need.
For this wedding bouquet design, you'll need the following:
Always process your flowers correctly, using a rehydrator such as Quick Dip. This is especially important when using a water loving flower like Gerbera Diasies.
Using the same products that a professional florist uses assures that you have nourished your flowers correctly from the start and will help keep them fresh throughout the entire wedding day.
Although she does not wire the flowers in the video, I generally like to wire my gerberas in order to support the heavy heads.
Do NOT use regular scissor to cut your flower stem. They could crush the flower cells and not allow for uptake of water. Floral scissors or a sharp knife will not do this and are better for flowers.
Finish all your designs by spraying thoroughly with a flower sealant (such as Finishing Touch) and keep the cut stems in water as much as possible up to and on the wedding day. Be careful when refrigerating, because some household fridges are colder in the back and can freeze flowers.
