Using the grid system you can control the position of the labels. The form example below has the col-md-10 which sets the width to 10/12 and center-margin which centers it.
For making labels vertical you have two options, either use the apropiate grid .col- class or wrap the form in the form-vertical class.
Add .form-inline to your form (which doesn't have to be a
) for left-aligned and inline-block controls.
