Ikebana flower designs tend to be minimalistic; the key to achieving their distinguished beauty is not in any particular single component, but rather the balance between all of them. The key is finding a harmonic balance between all the elements of expression (the container and the flowers, stalks and leaves), their characteristics (such as color, texture, form and the season they represent) and the space where the flower arrangement is expected to be used.
Planning your bouquet size. You should always plan about the size of your bouquet too. Some brides end up buying very large bouquets that are difficult to manage as well as cost much more. Try selecting the flowers that will look good with your dress and that too in an appropriate number. Make sure how big your bouquet size should be before doing any such purchases. It is not a bad idea to carry even a single flower down the aisle, as the bride looks equally good as with a big bouquet. You can use a daisy, lily, or even a single rose with pearl or lace accents around your bouquet, and this will add a unique touch to your ceremony. Selecting the "in_season" flowers also reduces the bouquet cost as compared to ordering the out_of_season flowers.
