Getting married or know someone who is? If you have planned, are planning or know someone well who is planning a wedding, you know that they can get quite expensive. Fun and exciting, with all sorts of amazing details to plan, but expensive. Not everything has to be that way, though. When I was planning a wedding last summer, we realized that flowers, one of the most important items at the wedding, were also one of the priciest things on the budget when we got costs from vendors. Determined to slash the budget and not spend thousands of dollars, we looked into making some of the flower arrangements. Turns out that flower arranging, while it was probably a lot more difficult to do without Youtube, Pinterest and step by step photo tutorials, is not actually all that tricky. This is where you can save much of that wedding budget for the honeymoon and house, check these ideas out. Think you will be skimping on the flowers? Think again. When you make your own arrangements, we found that you can often afford to buy nicer flowers, and more of them. These 34 ideas are the best we found from the top DIY and wedding bloggers. Pick your favorites and good luck planning that wedding of your dreams!
