I actually really like baby’s breath, the fact that it is cheap is just a bonus!

I don’t think anyone would mind but maybe that’s just me.

I think they would be fine.  And if you want other flowers for your bouquet, that’s fine too.  I would tie the baby’s breath bouquets with ribbon that matches your flowers, so everything is coordinated, but I think that would be really cute.

I love baby’s breath for floral arangments. It’s so soft and delicate and done correctly can be really chic. I am planning on doing several small vases filled with bunches of baby’s breath on each table and then incorporating some vases filled with other flowers as well. But I also think that the baby’s breath alone can be beautiful

I know that there is a Bee buzzing around here who used baby’s breath in several places and it looked amazing…I just can’t remember who. I’m sure someone else will know.

And I don’t think that have a bouquet that is different from your BM’s is bad…you’re supposed to stand out, plus you are the bride, you get to splurge a little. I think something like this looks great:

Wow… who knew! The Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets in the photo posted by rannfar looks so striking! I would love to do that. It looks so light & airy… like little clouds. 🙂

I don’t think baby’s breath looks tacky when bunched together. It does look a little old school if it’s used as a filler to a bouquet of roses…

I don’t think it’s tacky! It looks so beautiful when arranged together.

Baby’s breath when used on it’s own is beautiful and their are pics somewhere on this site of great bouquets and centerpieces. I will say mixed with roses, yes old school but stand alone in their own fluffy bouquet are really light and pretty.

The pics above, although beautiful, I think those flowers are Lily of the Valley and can be super pricey in a bouquet but they smell amazing and look gorgeous.

Ya, sorry, eloping, but those are Lily of the Valley, which are beautiful but costly…I love a bouquet of just baby’s breath, I think rannfar showed how gorgeous a bouquet or centerpiece of bb can be, go for it! 🙂

I am thinking of doing the exact same thing and possibly using babys breath in centerpieces. I love the look of only baby’s breath.


Lilly of the Valley can be home grown if you have a May wedding, plant some in your (or someone else’s) garden, they are so hardy, even when my dad tried to kill them, he couldn’t.

No! Not tacky at all! I think baby’s breath is so gorgeous, but a good friend of mine who is a florist said to be careful of having it too much in concentration because by the end of the night it begins to smell like, sorry, cat’s piss.
