My sister in law did babys breath for her bouquets and center pieces last weekend! They actually did them themselves and put the bouquets together on Thursday for a Saturday wedding and just kept them in water until the ceremony. They looked beautiful! I think it can be done – but then again I’m not a florist…

They look delicate but they are fairly hardy.

I don’t have personal experience but I’ve seen pics from real life weddings where they look great so it must be possible somehow!

I had, sorry HAVE pink baby’s breath as the main flower of my decorations in the church, and they were removed and taken to the reception – so they had a lot of moving about and distruption and they were absolutely fine.  I gave some family members some of the decorations to travel back to the UK with and took some back with me (all journeys involved long journeys)  They’re still going strong since February.  I have also seen a few friends using only baby’s breath as bouquets, and they look beautiful.  Same friends have managed to succesfulyl dry their bouquets and still have them.  The florist may not be too keen because they are an inexpensive flower and she can’t imagine a big markup on them.

@AlwaysSunny:  Stand your ground and tell her this is what you want – you are paying for them after all! They can totally be done and she knows it.

Baby’s breath is pretty sturdy, even though it looks delicate. Insist that you don’t care/take the responsibility if it crumbles… then prove her wrong when it doesn’t!  :oP
