Wedding Wednesday - Baby's Breath/Gypsophila

Wedding flowers and decorations can cost a pretty penny, and when you've sorted all the bouquets, button holes, ceremony venue flowers and table centrepiece flowers you're left with a huge bill and the flowers will only last a day or two after the big day. I've been looking into what kinds of flowers are the cheapest to use and one commonly known cheap flower is Baby's Breath, or Gypsophila. These flowers are voluminous sprays of tiny delicate white flowers, and they are very pretty and very, very cheap! For a long time this flower was only used to bulk out flower bouquets but there are loads of inventive ways to use this flower on its own to get amazing and dramatic results; and for a fraction of the price other flowers would cost! Here are some ideas I found on pinterest that I love.




Large bunches place in glass vases and jam jars makes for pretty centrepieces




Wrap around a wreath for a snowdrop studded christmas themed decoration!




Fashion into a pretty floral crown to wear on your big day. These also look cute on little flower girls.




A baby's breath wedding arch creates a soft and romantic setting.




Bunch together in big globes and hang from the ceiling like fluffy clouds!




Save money on your bridesmaid bouquets and have them all hold a large bunch simply tied with ribbon or twine




Get the men in on the action too with baby's breath boutonnieres!



Do you like baby's breath/gypsophila?

  2. This post is lovely - baby's breath looks so vintage and sweet! I was at a wedding on Saturday and there were huge bunches of it on every table - it looked beautiful and I would never have known it was a money-saving idea!
