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, also know as angel's breath flower, 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.

Tips for Incorporating Baby's Breath into Bridal Bouquets

Here are some points to take into consideration when you are using baby's breath in bridal bouquets:

Balance the proportions: When using baby's breath in a bridal bouquet, it is important to balance the proportions of the small flowers with the larger blooms. Too much baby's breath can make the bouquet look too delicate, while too little can make it look incomplete.

Choose the right shade of baby's breath: Baby's breath comes in a variety of shades, from pure white to ivory to light green. The shade of baby's breath you choose should complement the other colors in your bouquet and your wedding dress.

Consider the texture of baby's breath: Baby's breath has a slightly fuzzy texture, which can add visual interest to a bouquet. However, if you prefer a smoother look, you can carefully trim the fuzzy edges of the flowers.

Use baby's breath as a filler flower: Baby's breath is a versatile filler flower that can be used with a variety of other flowers, such as roses, peonies, hydrangeas, and orchids. It can also be used with greenery, such as eucalyptus and ferns.

Keep your bouquet fresh: Baby's breath is a relatively durable flower, but it will still need to be kept fresh to look its best on your wedding day. Be sure to store your bouquet in a cool, dark place and to mist it with water regularly.
