I love the full fluffiness of baby’s breath! I think it makes really simple elegant arrangements by itself. Don’t worry over whether or not people would think it was cheap. As a fellow bride, I think I would only think what a smart decision to get something chic and gorgeous for less!

I think it looks good!  Who cares if it’s cheap, too?

I think the disparity between all babys breath on one table and roses on the other would be a little odd.  Is there a way you could try to incorporate similar feelings into the arrangements?  Like maybe add some long-stemmed white roses into the babys breath and add babys breath into the low centerpieces?

as a guest, if i sat down at a table and saw a beautiful arrangement of flowers the last thing i will think to do is to judge if the flowers chosen were cheap or not – i believe beautiful arrangements speak for themselves no matter how much they cost

ive seen flower arrangments that cost a fortune but i thought they were tacky (co-worker got $300 bunch of flowers from snivelling boyfriend and it had tiny minature pineapples hiding in it for some reason)

First thought: Pretty and cheap! Where’s the downside to this? 🙂

@Virginia: I doubt that any guest would think it looks cheap. As a fellow wedding researcher, I think it’s a super savvy idea!

I really like babys breath for centerpieces, i do not think they look cheap at all.

I think the Baby’s Breath looks great!  But if you don’t feel comfortable using it, have you considered using Lily of the Valley?  You can get a similar look and they certainly are not cheap!

i think baby’s breath looks beautiful and delicate. one little thing, though…sometimes it can smell quite bad (not sure why- i think it’s part of the flower’s innate scent), so i would just double check.

LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I don’t care if it’s a cheap flower, or filler, or whatever. I think it’s SO pretty!
