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."
A wedding flower decoration requires meticulous planning in great detail. It is also essential to stick to the predetermined budget levels as things get out of hand very quickly. Simple yet stylish decoration can give the romantic aura to your wedding. Local flowers are cheap, fresh and are easily available for flower decoration. During summer it is best to opt for sunflowers, zinnias, dahlias, lilies and hydrangeas. It's best to choose those flowers especially for the bridal bouquet that highlights the bride's persona. The bride's bouquet should be made only after considering certain factors like the bride's skin tone, facial appearance, body proportion and attire.
