Choose a container that will complement the shape and color scheme you have in mind. If you are just starting out, go with a traditional size vase __ not too tall, and not to squat. As a general rule, your container should be about one_third to one_half the size of your finished arrangement. So, for a vased bouquet you'll need mostly flowers with longer stems. A smaller bowl or basket is fine, too. You'll simply have to cut stems shorter and may need floral foam to help position each bloom. It helps to start with the simpler designs and work your way up, and a vased bouquet is often recommended for a first project.
While selecting the flowers for your wedding you should take care to blend it with the theme of your wedding. Even the flower selection would depend on your theme as well as the season that you are getting married in. If you want flowers that are not available in the season, you would have to tell your flower decorator in advance to make arrangements to procure the flowers for your wedding. Even though it would turn out to be more expensive but if you can afford it and that is what would make your dream wedding come true, you should go ahead and book your self a good and experienced florist who can easily turn your dreams into reality.
