I’m also considering going the baby breath route so hopefully someone  can shed some insight!

For an all baby’s breath bouquet I think you need a lot, probably 30 stems for a bouquet. It’s very thin and if you want the puffy cloud look you’ll need a lot of them. But I’m pretty sure that it can be dried, so you don’t need to order fresh.

ETA Just found this blog where she puts 6 stems together and makes a bouquet, t’s pretty big because it’s fairly loose. If you want a more even puffy cloud look I’d probably say to do 10-15 stems. And it can be bought fresh or dried.

word of caution:

i mentioned to my florist that i wanted to use baby’s breath.. and while they are beautiful in clouds like that.. she mentioned that it smells like cat pee if there is an abundance of it.

@michiru4ever:  you’re right. Baby’s breath is very thin and in a bouquet you need a lot to make it look “nice”.  You can always add white roses or gerbera’s to give the bouquet some body.
