Fast and easy! Make your own easy and affordable gerbera daisy wedding bouquet with perky fresh daisies, green floral tape, hot glue, and matching fabric or ribbon. To maximize your flowers' freshness, trim the stems and soak gerbera daisies in water or a preservative solution - 2 cups Sprite, 1/2 teaspoon bleach and two cups warm water - overnight. Arrange the stems and greenery as you like. Starting at the base, wrap floral tape tightly down around stems and then back up again. Break the tape with your fingers. Wrap the ribbon or fabric around the base and stems of the flowers and secure with hot glue or bejeweled corsage pins. Gerbera daisies - the fifth most popular wedding flower in the entire world.
