I am thinking about using a ton of baby breath as my wedding flowers.. Along its white hydrangea and peach, light pink, and maybe some cream roses. I know to line the aisle we are using tin buckets filled with baby breath and in my girl bouquets they are having a ton of baby breath wi a few accent roses. I just have no clue how much baby breath to use. Also I want to add some century shabby chic things for my centerpieces. I want them to either be all different or the same with different colors. For example one table will have a tall vase with hydrangeas at tone top and branches coming out tall, with mason jars with candles and wood slabs. Then maybe some old books on another table with mason jars and some flowers in lithe top of a log. Just some ides on centerpiecea would be awesome! I will add some pictures on what I have so dear.. Thanks

We have very similar aesthetics. I would send you a bunch of pictures, but since I see you’re on pinterest it’s easier to just link you to my pinterest. I have some pictures of centerpieces that are very similar to what you’re describing.
Also, keep in mind that hydrangeas start to turn pink later in the season and will be almost completely pink by the time your wedding comes around in October, so getting white ones might be a costly endeavor.

We had a rustic, vintage barn wedding this past October, and it was better than I had ever imagined. We did have some problems with our flowers, which were out of our florist’s control (delivery company sent wrong flowers), but she did her absolute best to make everything beautiful. In the end, we were still in love with everything. We used vintage milk glass vases and white ceramic pitchers for floral centerpieces accompanied by mason jars adorned with lace for floating candles. The flowers we were supposed to have were Ivory Cream Patience Garden Roses, Peach Juliet Garden Roses, Cream Spray Roses, Burgundy Dahlias and Burgundy Scabiosa with Seeded Eucalyptus, Baby’s Breath and Queen Anne’s Lace as fillers. The roses we received were not garden roses, so we didn’t have the “lush” look I was going for, but regardless it turned out beautifully. I also think the planter boxes are lovely for arrangements. Some photos from my wedding are below. Hope this is helpful! Best wishes!

I was thinking the same thing about babys breath but i remember reading on a wedding bee board that it actually smells bad in large quantities. Check this out before making a decision!

@avonleaR: It is very fragrant, but I didn’t find it to smell bad… Just the opposite actually. I really liked the floral scent it gave off at my wedding. I suppose scent is an individual preference though.
