Pretty! You may want to try and find a wholesaler for flowers. There’s a few categories of baby’s breath and one called New Love will give you a fuller look. I work as a planner part time and deal with florals/wholesalers a lot!

@FutureMrsT1221:  I like the shape and size of the boquet and bout! But I agree with you I see more green than white on these ones. I know there is a specific type that is fuller just not sure what it is called.

@FutureMrsT1221:  I’m also planning to DIY my flowers with baby’s breath. 

I think it turned out pretty, I cannot see the details well though. I may feel that theh could be wrapped a bit nicer, but that may just be the picture. I would go for broad/wide satin band and I would finish further down towards the end. But that’s purely a matter of personal taste and it is very nice as is.

@FutureMrsT1221:  now that I can see it more clearly I actually also like it better 🙂 

it may also be the fact that it felt “too green” overall but I’m sure if you change the type you’ll be fine. 

How many stems did you need for the bouquet?

@FutureMrsT1221:  I don’t really like the boutineer, but I like the bouquet. I think maybe not wrap the boutineer up so high? It’s kind of like suuuuper skinny then BAM spread out.

@FutureMrsT1221:  Makes sense. That will help me for figuring out how much to buy for my DIY session. Many thanks 🙂

I LOVE DIY flowers – they save sooo much money and are just lovely!

I love the new love baby’s breath – trying to figure out where to get it the cheapest as well for my friend’s wedding in September.

Keep us updated if you find any locally. I was able to beat fiftyflowers.com’s price for white hydrangea by ordering via Costco’s flower lady so it does pay off to shop around locally too.
