Baby’s breath has been experiencing a bit of a renaissance. Previously deemed a dreaded filler flower or considered a dated 1980s fad, baby’s breath is once again blooming at weddings. Since it totes a drastically more affordable price tag than many in-demand wedding flowers, such as garden roses and peonies, brides can use bundles of the bloom to decorate their ceremony or reception tables. Many have even taken to carrying baby’s breath–only bouquets down the aisle. And with their soft rustic look, the flower looks right at home at barn weddings and relaxed outdoor ceremonies.
Bridal hair is also getting the baby’s breath treatment, as brides are incorporating the flower into their wedding hairstyles for a look that’s effortlessly ethereal and oh so angelic. Some are dotting their lush, full braids with baby’s breath while others are opting to use it for flower crowns. Bridal parties are also getting in on the trend, with bridesmaids and flower girls similarly using the flower in their big-day hairstyles. No matter your personal style, baby’s breath can be a gorgeous hair accessory. Depending on how you decide to use the buds, the vibe can be either bohemian, rustic, or romantic.
