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.
Bridal hair flowers are an excellent choice for brides wanting an understated yet beautiful look for their bridal hair. The great positive too is that you can find extremely cost effective items that look fantastic but for a fraction of the cost of a tiara or coronet styled headdress.
