 show me your gerbera's!

Hello All! I really want gerbera's as my flower and for my girls I'm thinking that darker pink, orange, and yellow (either each girl has one colour of each has a mix) and for mine a mix with one sunflower... so I'm looking for pictures for inspiration since I will be making the bouquets myself - with help!

Well...my flowers were gerbers!
They actually were the WRONG SIZE...they should have been BIG...but anyway..I was happy...after the initial shock.

Here is a non-pro pic of our bouquets. They had gerbs and roses. The girls were supposed to have fuchsia gerbs with the light pink roses, but the supplier sent my florist PURPLE gerbs, so we went with all light pink.

Sorry to hijack the post, but can anyone tell me ....

.... if you are doing an all-gerbera bouquet, whats the approximate number of gerberas you have for the bride's flowers? For the bridesmaids? I was thinking maybe 5/bridesmaid, and 24 for the bride? (I'm considering just buying gerbs and making the bouquets myself, thats why I'm asking!)

I used large gerbera daisies for our bouquets - 9 for my bridesmaids, and 12 for myself. Proportionally I think it looked good; if I had used more, I think the bouquet would have looked too big for me.

Here are some pics of mine (if I posted them properly, first time posting pics) I had 18 gerbs in my bouquet and each girl had 5, then my flowergirls each had a single gerb. The florist really wanted me to have greenery in my bouquets but I was against it. She had to wire all of the stems to keep them strong for the day.

ok, so it sounds like my estimate of 24 gerbs for my bouquet was way off. I'm happy to hear that, as it will make things a bit cheaper. Thanks, ladies!

And all the girls with their bouquets:


This one shows the proportions of our bouquets:


I have to say, they lasted really well. They were still looking pretty good many days after the wedding!

These are not my gerbera pictures (yet!) but they are the inspiration pics that got me on the whole royal blue & yellow idea! I absolutely love it! I actually found them when I was thinking about photographers... They are from the little blue lemon website.. This photographer is in Hamilton, so anyone from Hamilton looking for a photographer should definitely take a look at their site!

Mine were a mix, but had a good number of gerberas. Had I been thinking, I would have gotten an entire bouquet of them as they are my fave flowers.

Has anyone seen the brown gerberas used? Or better yet, does anyone know if they're as readily available as the bright versions? I'm thinking of doing cream and brown, but I've never actually seen the brown ones!
