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.
Etymologically, the origins of the name Ikebana comes from two Japanese words: ikeru, which means to give or conserve life, and hana, which translates as flower. There is an old Japanese saying relating to Japanese flower arrangement that goes kokoro wo ikeru, which literally means to give life to your heart. In all cultures, nature has always been an essential source for healing of the soul. In Japan, the use of flowers to enrich the spirit has been part of the culture since ancient times. By extension, Ikebana is also considered a form of artistic expression meant to enrich and heal the spirit.
