Hi! I didn’t do DIY flowers, but I did have baby’s breath centerpieces. We only had 45 guests and I didn’t want to spend a ton on flowers…but I still loved the way it turned out! Plus, I’m glad I didn’t spend the extra $$$ because one table even moved the flowers/table numbers to the floor so they could chat better.  I was just thinking back to a friends wedding and I don’t even remember what her flowers looked like!

I’ve been considering the same thing! All of the research that I have done suggests purchasing them at least three days in advance because they usually appear “wilted” upon delivery and need trimmed of any dried out pieces. I don’t believe it will matter that you are ordering them in October (as will I) and Sams usually keeps their florals around the same prices even if they are out of season.

I know it’s not the same thing but I wanted to share a little baby’s breath project o just did this weekend. I filled birdcages that will be on my escort table with dried baby’s breath. The cages on my tables will be succulents but I wanted to add something else to the mix as well. I was worried it would look cheap or tacky, but even the fiancé thought it was cool looking so I think I’m going to go with it. Excuse the laundry room but the dried baby’s breath has a bit of a smell and I’m airing it out. 

I say go for it, I think it’s pretty. But I had even considered a baby’s breath bouquet so I’m bias!

I just made some baby’s breath centerpieces with pink carnations for my best friend’s baby shower and I love the way they turned out. I would recommend buying them 1-2 days in advance. I say go for it. They will turn out beautiful. 

Here are some pics of the vases and the tables once it was all set up.

 333anonbee :  my sister did them for everything except her own bouquet (which had a lot of baby’s breath). she spent under $400 for everything. i don’t have pics of the receoption tables handy, but i do have one of the bridesmaids so you can see the baby’s breath bouquets

My SIL is doing this for her Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets. Right now, Kroger has baby’s breath for $4.99 a bunch. And one is plenty big enough for a bouquet!

I’m doing a ton of baby’s breath too! Baby’s breath bouquets for my BMs and my pew ends will be baby’s breath as well! I hadn’t even thought about doing the centerpieces that way too! Definitely following because I have had so many questions about this! Also, good to know that I only need to order a couple days before!

Has anybody ever grown this before because I’m thinking it would be pretty to use along the edge of the walkway from my ceremony area to the reception area.

futuremardinly :  i don’t know anything about growing baby’s breath, but Queen Anne’s lace is very similar and tends to grow wild (it’s often considered a “weed”). So it should be fairly easy to grow QAL at the very least.
