When planning to get flower decoration done for your wedding ceremony, the main focus should be to decorate the altar or in a Jewish ceremony a chupah or the mandap in a Hindu wedding. Where ever you are planning to get married, whether at home, club, hotel or banquet hall _ a beautiful flower decoration can enhance the beauty of the place. It doesn't matter if your wedding is a very formal, casual or traditional event; flowers are and will always remain a very important part of the ceremony.
When I learned Ikebana as an adult, I was really fortunate to have had an old_fashioned sensei (instructor) who not only taught me the theory and techniques, but also immersed me in the respectable manners and ways of the good old days. It is through my sensei that I learned that Ikebana goes beyond the typical art form, and that it is more of a way of life; in fact, Ikebana is also known as kado, which literally means "the way of the flower."
