Have you ever had a point in your wedding planning when you suddenly changed direction? I totally had that moment”¦ let me explain”¦
To be fair, in regards to the florals involved in the wedding, I never really had the “perfect” idea. I see flowers”¦ I think they are pretty”¦ but nothing has essentially jumped out at me as being the flowers I MUST see on our tables or in bouquets.
Here was the original plan:
Hydrangeas, hydrangeas, hydrangeas.
I was drawn by the “poofy-ness” of them, if you will. Oh no, wait”¦ the florist suggested these”¦ I more or less agreed. Don’t get me wrong, I think they are beautiful”¦ but”¦
I’d been thinking a lot about my DIYing”¦ my mother and I have decided that we are going to tackle the centerpieces ourselves. And I am a nit-pick. Hydrangeas are known to be delicate, and to die quickly. I started to worry about a wedding day hydrangea catastrophe. We can’t have partially brown flowers on our tables. I’d die.
Then comes the issue of price. Thankfully, with a DIY option, we can purchase flowers in bulk and save money by arranging them ourselves. However, flowers are still expensive”¦
***Screams angrily in frustration***
But then”¦ I stumbled upon some amazing inspiration, and I’m hooked. And it is by the most unexpected flower imaginable.
Oh my gosh”¦ that’s right. I said it! For years I have despised baby’s breath”¦ the extra little filler that they shove in bouquets”¦ who needs it?!?!
But seeing these photos changed my mind”¦
This wedding in Aspen featured puffs of baby’s breath hanging from the ceiling! Gorgeous!
Even bouquets look gorgeous, and simple! Poofy and full and beautiful!

I ADORE her bouquet…so romantic!

The little “bombs” are adorable!
So”¦ what do I love about baby’s breath? It is cost-friendly (and I like to get a lot of bang for a buck), and I’m pretty sure that it will match our décor/theme well (birds, trees, whimsical, lighthearted”¦). Plus, I am hoping that it will be relatively easy and quick to set up as a centerpiece; score!
What do you think about using “filler flowers” as a part of your main décor?
