Putting it all together _ Once you have selected your flowers and vase, its time to start putting things together. If possible, first cut each flower stem diagonally about one inch from the bottom while holding the end of the stem under warm water. Use your kitchen sink or a large basin. This helps ensure each stem will absorb moisture and nutrients easily. As you cut each flower, transfer it to a temporary "work" vase, which should be halfway full of water.
There are many flowers that are popularly used for the wedding like the orchids, lilies, rubrim, daisies, carnations, freesia, violets, straw, lilac and iris. If you are confused about choosing the flowers for the wedding, you can ask the opinion of the experts _ the florists, since they would be able to guide you better. Usually the bridal bouquet consists of either white or cream flowers such as the stephanotis, orchids, roses, lilies, gardenias, carnations or sweet peaks but if you want to get bouquet complementing your gown, you can ask your florist to do so.
