You don't need a fancy florist to get the arrangements you imagine for your big day. In fact, you can do some arranging yourself to save a lot of money. Keep in mind the fact that the arrangements you see in magazines and in wedding photos are done my professionals with years of experience, so if yours do not turn out exactly how you imagined the first time, do not be disappointed.
Lauren Conrad created a tutorial on how to create different floral arrangements using unique vases. She says, "A well-arranged bouquet is a lot like a well-styled outfit: Smart layers, contrast, and personal touches."
