.....I mean Baby's.....Breath!! As in flowers.....and you know I love me some flowers! I have always loved baby's breath, but there was a time when I saw it as cheap filler for a beautiful flower arrangement and didn't use it much anymore in the floral work I did.

But....I was just over at one of my favorite wedding blogs to stalk, Aylee Bits, and saw the most amazing compilation of photos of weddings where they used only baby's breath! It is amazing....see: Not only is it very inexpensive, but it is very easy to work with! It's also so light and airy and just makes a beautiful statement. Personally, I feel that if you're going to use baby's breath....use lots of it. Huge arrangements....roping....I love the flower girl's headpiece and I love the wreaths! Check out the gorgeous centerpieces in the picture below....bottom, center. Aren't they fabulous!I even like the bunches of baby's breath mixed in with other white flowers, like below:

I did a little more "blog stalking" and found the fabulous photo below at WeddingBee.com, which I abosolutely LOVE to follow. It's a blog with a group of brides past and brides to be....you get to follow their road to the altar....at the altar....and past the altar. They lean on each other for help, advice and ideas to make their wedding special. Anyway, check out this pic:You can actually see more of this beautiful, over the top wedding at David Monn's website here.

So, if you're on a tight budget, or just want to make a huge impact with flowers, think babies....I mean baby's....breath!
