I came across SEVERAL articles on babys breath bouquets and I’m a little indifferent on the whole thing. I’ve always disliked it in flower arrangments, but something about it bundled together in a bouquet doesn’t look half bad, what do you ladies think?

I was never a huge fan of it in bouquets either, but a bouquet on their own is a different story!!! I quite enjoy them!

@vmec:I can see it, can you not? 🙁 Let me remove and add it again!

can now! “meh” is what that makes me say.
If you love it go for it but to me it just looks cheap and lazy unless no frills, no gimics, country low key wedding is the theme in which case I’d deem it a perfect fit.

I love them,tho they can be a bit messy. I think they are a great idea for bouquets!

The pic is working fine for me.
I also am not a fan of them in bouquets, but I like it clustered like that. Probably not enough for a bridal bouquet, but definitely on the tables. I think the ways Mrs Buttons used it is perfect!

I’m having my florist make up small bouquets of them to tie to the pews in our church.

I’ve always thought they were a little cheesy when mixed in with roses, not that I complain when this happens! lol
But I really love them all bunched together like that. I wonder if there something long, straight and kind of pokey with a hint of vibrant colour that could be very sparsely mixed in.

I actually really, really like it! I think it is super cute!
I also kind of hate how some flowers are automatically deemed “cheaper” than others – they all grow out of the dirt and they all deserve some love!

I really dislike baby’s breath, but I agree, they look pretty on their own. I did little baby’s breath arrangements for accents to our centrepieces and I think they looked fantastic! They definitely do have a more low key country vibe though, so I don’t think I’d use a full bouquet of it for a formal hotel or banquet hall wedding per say.

Like the PPs, I love it on it’s own like your picture. Not a big fan of it as a filler.

I love this look. I have never liked it used as a filler, but I love it on its own. I might actually be using it by itself in some of my centerpieces 🙂

@Amaryllis:I definitely wouldn’t do it for my bouquet but I was thinking for my four girls, honestly none of them are crazy in love with flowers and look at it as “Well they’ll die and I’ll probably end up throwing them away”, which im totally fine with because I see it the same way. I do love what Mrs Buttons did with them, I’m thinking I’ll steal her idea and use them in small vases on my cocktail tables! My reception tables have tall elaborate centerpieces so I definitely want to keep my flower costs down where I can!
