elegantly understated | Baby’s Breath wedding decor

When Charlotte married Harry in the sixth season of Sex And The City, she carried a super elegant hand-tied bouquet of nothing but baby’s breath.

What was once known as a somewhat tacky filler flower has now become a whimsical element of wedding floral design on-a-budget! We found some beautiful online inspiration for how to use Baby’s Breath either as a delicate accent throughout your wedding, or even as a showpiece arrangement!

We’ve seen the gorgeous accent of Baby’s Breath at both Jenn and Sean’s vintage-rustic Ever After, as well as at Christyne and Brad’s Big Day, planned with a similar theme.

{ Tips from a Wedding Planner }

If you’re using Baby’s Breath as a decor feature in your wedding design, be sure to confirm with the florist the quality (size) of baby’s breath you’ll be getting. They’re not all created equal! Some blooms are large and full, while others are much smaller and more green than they are white. This will save you from being disappointed on the Day Of when your pieces are delivered.

If you’re using Baby’s Breath as a bouquet flower, keep in mind that even though the blooms are light and airy and take up lots of space, the stems themselves are very skinny. If you’d like the base of your bouquet to be more substantial when you’re holding it, make sure to ask your florist to add in some additional stem pieces to ‘bulk up’ where you’ll be holding.

Happy Planning!
