Wedding ceremony flower arrangements need to be big and dramatic. Unfortunately - that makes them expensive. But you can make your own altar sprays if you have the right products that a professional florist uses.
You will need a large mache or other container (such as an urn), large blocks of florist foam, florist wire, greening tape and a way to transport it when you're done!!
If you're interested, check out our step-by-step tutorial on making a large floral arrangement in our wedding "How To" section. You'll be shown exactly how a large altar arrangement is constructed.
