Sometimes when it comes to picking flowers, showy flowers such as garden roses, hydrangea, anemones, peonies and orchids get all the attention – yet I sometimes like it when couples choose modest flowers like the humble “spider” mum or cutesy “gerbera” daisies. Even though these flowers are often not as popular or desirable, when arranged with flair they can be ever as gracious and pretty.

{Here is a wedding Nancy designed incorporating Gerbera daisies in a chic way}:

When thinking about your wedding flowers, don’t forget our humble friends. Here is a list of some of my favorite “humble” flowers that are making a comeback:

Peruvian Lilies
Spider Mums
Gerbera daisies
Green Gladiolus
Sweet William

When in doubt, you can always put these modest blooms in tight clusters.
