Baby’s Breath (Gypsophila) is often thought of as just a filler flower, shoved in with a dozen Valentines Day roses or tucked in your mom’s Mother’s Day Corsage. And honestly, when it came to my own wedding three years ago, I wanted nothing to do with Baby’s Breath. Funny what three years can do though…
Although I’m still not crazy about it being used as a filler, I think it looks absolutely stunning when it’s compactly grouped by itself. This flower has been a growing trend during the past couple of months, especially since it is available year round.
Baby’s Breath is also wonderful as it can fit any trend or budget. From what I’ve researched, Baby’s Breath runs around $80 for 100 stems (not including assembly by a florist). There are also multiple varieties of this popular flower, depending on what you are looking for. My personal favorites include:
Gypsophila Overtime – flaunting large and dense blooms
Gypsophila Mirabella – pure white blooms that are more pest resistant, therefore requiring the use of fewer pesticides
Although previously viewed as a “cheaper flower,” Baby’s Breath has stepped up and become a classy choice for those who crave an all white alternative. Check out some of these ideas on incorporating this dainty flower into your wedding day.
