In order to get started in understanding the basics of wave soldering, read this http://www.ami.ac.uk/courses/topics/0225_wave/index.html

Many board assemblers have replaced wave solder machines with selective soldering machines. * Often, modern board designs do not have the luxury of being properly designed for wave soldering of the few PTH components that remain essential to the proper function of a board. * Some wave soldering machines are big and expensive to operate. * Selective soldering machines can be flexible to operate.

Depends on design? can you use a pin in paste process to accommodate SMT and through hole? are you in full control of your design?
