Wedding Budget Tip #30:

Use inexpensive filler flowers like baby’s breath for a chic look on the cheap!

We’ve talked over and over again about how much we love baby’s breath for weddings. Not only does it create a super chic and airy look, but it’s also super inexpensive.

Baby’s breath can be used in a variety of ways for wedding decor: from centerpieces to aisle markers — this inexpensive filler flower packs a powerful punch at a penny pincher’s price. 🙂

You can easily place baby’s breath into simple vessels like Mason Jars, beer bottles, pickle jars, etc — just consider any glass item in your recycling bin! You could do the same with soup cans, too. Remove the label and voila — a centerpiece vessel on the cheap! Fill with some baby’s breath stems and you’ve got yourself a simple and super affordable centerpiece on a shoestring.

You could even make your own baby’s breath bouquets or baby’s breath boutonnieres for a super savvy bridal party look. Check out our previously posted baby’s breath tutorials for more info on how to make these simple and chic arrangements yourself.
