I’m getting married in mid-August. Our wedding is lavender-themed, so I’ll be making bouquets and centrepieces with dried lavender as the main flower. But it’s pretty hard to make a full-looking bouquet with just dried lavender, so I’ve been looking around for a dried or fake filler flower like baby’s breath or caspia. Caspia is kinda expensive (like $2.50 a stem), and I’ve played with dried baby’s breath at home, but they tend to shrivel up and shed easily. I’ve seen pictures of dried baby’s breath that still looks fluffy and full. Does anyone know how to dry baby’s breath like that?
Alternatively, do you know where I can find realistic-looking artificial filler flowers? So far the most reastic one I can find is baby’s breath from Hobby Lobby, but it’s hard to judge how it looks in real life from an internet picture.
If you’ve made bouquets with dried or fake filler flowers, please show me photos! Thanks 🙂

Mix of real and faux flowers. Tons of cheap real greenery.

Thanks! That’s beautiful. Can’t tell from the photo but is that fresh baby’s breath?

yeah that’s real. But it’s super cheap it didn’t make sense new to get faux

Whatever cuts back expenses, I say got for it! They’ll still look beautiful <3

I am using Sola flowers and thought about putting lavender in there, but decided against it due to allergies.
This one has dried wheat too

Thanks everyone! I wanted to stay away from fresh flowers because I don’t want to be frantically assembling bouquets and centrepieces right before the wedding haha. Hence the decision to go with fake or dried flowers.
I bought sola flowers to mix in there too! Greenery would be great, but I’m not sure what would be good. I’ve seen lots of lavender bouquets with caspia dyed green, but again, caspia isn’t cheap.
