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.

One 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.

Baby's Breath Wedding Bouquets + Centerpieces

Now, we know Baby's breath (or Gypsophila) *is* technically a type of flower. But in this case, it's a great alternative to bloomier blossoms in that it is super cost-effective.

In large quantities, baby's breath can create a stunning visual effect. How gorgeous and dreamy are these arrangements?

We love this simple filler flower because it's chic, neutral, and crazy affordable. You can literally pair these stems with any style, theme, or color scheme. That's why we consider baby's breath a budget savvy floral win.

If you're looking to order this flower in bulk, might we recommend shopping with our partners at FiftyFlowers? You can get a large bundle of these little white blooms in bulk! Alternatively, they are basically available anywhere — we're willing to bet you can even buy bunches at your local grocery store!
