A Wedding Favorite: The Baby’s Breath Flower

Baby's Breath is a traditional flower usually used as a filler in wedding decorations. But baby's breath is now becoming more popular at weddings, as modern brides are no longer using them as fillers to their bouquets and centerpieces only, but as the entire bouquets and flower arrangements.

The scientific name of Baby's Breath is Gypsophila. It is a genus of flowering plants in the carnation family which comprises approximately 150 species. The Baby's Breath most commonly used in flower arrangements and bouquets is the common gypsophila. This classic flower displays many tiny, cloud-like blooms covering its branches. Because of their ability to flourish in difficult environments Baby's Breath represents everlasting love.

Baby's Breath is an ideal filler flower, but can also be used alone to create popular globe-shaped centerpieces. Baby's Breath is not only a delicate and airy flower, but it is also inexpensive and easy to find at florists in your country.

We have seen Baby's Breath used in Bohemian weddings a lot; picture whimsical flower crowns for bridesmaids and flower girls. Baby's Breath can also be tinted in whatever color you like making to add a pop of color to the wedding or bouquet.
