My sister had that color daisies in our bouquets, which were real. She had that blue, lime green, bright oange, and hot pink. What about small bouquets of white carnations? I almost used them because I love how fluffy they look, and obviously they’re wuite inexpensive.

I’ve seen on a few wholesale flower websites where you can get almost any color of flower…some are actually sprayed. While your dresses are really pretty,are you sure you want flowers that will hardly  be noticed? Those Gerbers are pretty close, even tho they look blue on my screen. What other colors are you incorporating in your decor?

If you wanted to stick with gerberas, you could always go yellow, which would highlight the dresses wonderfully and are super easy to find online through places like fiftyflowers.  You could also do a bunching of the mini – daisy poms as well.

I wouldn’t recommend anything sprayed or dyed. The color can easily not come out exactly like you want, bleed when wet if sprayed, and make the flowers wilt more quickly with the spray.

I worked at a florist throughout highschool and college and we would only dye/spray flowers if the customer was absolutely insistant.

Talk to your florist about color and budget first, not amount of flowers you think you can afford per bouquet. You will be surprised about the options that you have…

@soontobemrandmrsfinck had a good idea with the daisy poms as well… they look like mini daisies… that would give you more of a garden look.
