Let’s face it, flowers are expensive. When working with a strict budget, the price of flowers AND a floral designer can be astronomical. Nowadays a lot of budget friendly brides are making an effort to create their own floral arrangements for their big day. Don’t know where to start? Why not take a class on floral design? Community college classes around Los Angeles county offer a variety of floral design courses that can cost as little as $10! Now you can save the money you would have spent on that fancy floral designer and put it to your shoes!  😉
