Flower Alternatives: Baby’s Breath

This post is part of our wedding flower alternatives series. Baby's breath is one of the *best* options for using fresh florals while also keeping wedding costs down.

When it comes to spending money on your wedding, most couples are looking for ways to cut costs where possible. We always advise cutting your budget in the areas of your wedding that are of the lowest personal priority to the two of you.

An area that many couples choose to cut back is with their wedding flowers. One way we encourage couples to save money on their wedding flowers is by choosing a cheaper alternative to fresh flowers for their wedding bouquets, centerpieces, and other decor.
