Baby’s breath is back in a big way! The light and airy flower is no longer a mere “filler flower”, and has become a big wedding trend. And why not – it is white, romantic, and yes, affordable. Baby’s breath is also incredibly versatile, working beautifully for bouquets, centerpieces, and other wedding decor. Find out all of the pretty ways you can use romantic baby’s breath for your wedding flowers.
One of the wonderful things about baby’s breath is that it can be used to create a classic romantic style, a casual look, or a pretty rustic wedding design. In the image above, baby’s breath is formed into a trio of wreaths with garlands swagged between them. It is a gorgeous way to frame a window in wedding venue. The same design would also be a perfect backdrop for the vows, behind the head table at the reception, or pretty much anywhere in the wedding. You could easily make it more rustic by hanging it against a rough wooden background like a barn wall or even a cool old door set up as the background for an outdoor ceremony. Or back it with sheer pink chiffon for an ultra romantic wedding. The options are broad.
Baby’s breath pomanders are another great wedding idea. Simple and pretty, easy and elegant, how can you go wrong? Hanging wedding flowers always look wonderful. They would be a beautiful addition to the entry way to a reception venue, hanging from a tent ceiling, or suspended from trees for an outdoor celebration.
If your wedding style is low key and casual, baby’s breath is a fantastic option for DIY projects. What could be easier than popping some of the little white blossoms into clean tin cans and hanging them up? This is a cute idea for a backyard wedding where the bridesmaids all wear different cotton floral dresses with unique bridesmaid jewelry. You could even make this with supplies from your local grocery store.
Baby’s breath is also wonderful for wedding bouquets. In the top picture, a full bunch of the little flowers is tied up with an elegant green satin ribbon to increase their presence. Another option is for the bridesmaids to carry baby’s breath bouquets, while the bride carries a complementary flower like roses. They are so neutral that they work nicely with any color bridesmaid dress, including neutral tones as seen above. Dainty pearl tin cup necklaces would be pretty bridesmaid jewelry gifts to play up the delicate nature of the flowers.
The amazing thing about baby’s breath is how this tiny little blossom can be used to create grand floral displays. Large centerpieces or ceremony arrangements set in footed urns or very tall vases look incredibly elegant and very ethereal, almost like a cloud. The key is to use mass quantities, since baby’s breath can look skimpy if it is not full enough. Luckily, it is such an affordable flower that you can really use a large amount without breaking your budget. Just one more reason to adore baby’s breath for weddings!
