    YES! I think it looks great.

    No. It looks cheap.

    Mix it in with other flowers

    @CallMeMrsG:  I think the bouquets look silly and unfinished. Otherwise, I like the use of baby’s breath. Have you seen those gorgeous centerpieces floating around? AWESOME!

    @kendra389:  I’m with you! I love baby’s breah on it’s own, one of my BMs did all baby’s breath bouquets for her BMs and it looked amazing espeically when they put them in vases on the head table. But with other flowers, to me, it looks kind of dated. Just my opinion.

    Unless you have a very particular style of wedding (I associate it with rustic, barn, outdoors, sunshine, blonde woods, simplicity), Baby’s Breathe looks like a cost-cutter.  It doesn’t match a giant ballgown, or a cavernous cathedral, or a hotel ballroom.  All the baby’s breathe on Pinterest are at weddings that are light and bright.      

    I think a single flower gives a lush appearance (lots of baby’s breathe with roses would just look like filler), but it doesn’t need to be costly.  I love white carnations, hydrangeas, and daisies, and they’re quite inexpensive.

    I love, love, love baby’s breath. I say to go with what you love – if it happens to be cheaper, even better! Also, most wedding guests aren’t going to be thinking about how much your flowers cost, so don’t worry about that!

    @atreyu547:  seriously though! Everyone around here goes on and on about how guest comfort is a priority. Well, flowers have nothing to do with guest comfort! So people should just suck it up and deal with the decor conditions. If they have a problem with “cheap” flowers, what would they rather we cut back on?

    I so badly wanted to do this! My grandma is a florist and would hear nothing of it though- my flowers were absolutely AMAZING but part of me wishes I had stuck with my guns about doing all baby’s breath.

    If you use them alone, it looks absolutely stunning and very whimsical/enchanting. We did this as decor for our church and then took the vases of baby’s breath to our reception. They looked absolutely gorgeous next to our sweetheart table!  It was actually one of my favorite floral pieces of the day!

     

    I wanted to get you better pictures, but unfortunately our pro photos are too large 🙁

    I like it, and don’t think it looks cheap.

    The most opulent wedding I have, or will ever, attended was all babys breath flowers.

    The simplest decorations can be one of the prettiest. Go for it!

    I like them as decoration like on the pew ends in the OP’s pic, but they are a bit iffy as the sole flower in a bouquet IMO.  The smaller bouquets look really dainty, but I have seen an example on pinterest where it is a massive bouquet and just looks silly. 

    Everyone has different tastes though.  I don’t associate it with being frugal, if it matches the style you are after then go for it.
