Have a Beautiful Baby's Breath Wedding
Baby’s breath is often thought of as a filler, but when done well, it can look beautiful on its own. Because it is a delicate branching flower, it requires a large bunch to create an impact. The good news is, baby’s breath is less expensive than many flowers, so even though you will have to buy a large deal of baby’s breath, you will still save money overall.
Here are four lovely ways to use baby’s breath in your wedding.
Boutonniere – Your groom will like this simple boutonniere. A small bunch of baby’s breath gathered together with some twine makes looks great on his lapel for a rustic wedding.
Bridesmaid Bouquets –The big clusters of baby’s breath are gathered together to create a simple, yet stunning bouquet for the attendants. If you want to add a bit of color, why not wrap the flower stems with a ribbon in the wedding theme color.
To save even more on your floral budget, have the bridesmaid’s bouquets double as decoration for the head table. These vases can hold the bouquets on the wedding day and then be a thank you gift for your bridesmaids.
Bride’s Hair – If you don’t want to wear a veil or fancy tiara, tucking a few sprigs of baby’s breath into your hair can add a special touch. This bride created a headband look with baby’s breath to frame her face; baby’s breath would also look terrific tucked in a braid.
Escort Cards – A mass of baby’s breath is nestled into a vintage suitcase to hold the escort cards. What a unique way to present the seating arrangements.
While baby’s breath can be a great filler for your wedding bouquets and decorations, it can look lovely on its own as well. Don’t overlook baby’s breath is you are looking for an affordable floral option that still provides a great impact.
