Baby's Breath?

Mom's wedding bouquet was made up of red roses and baby's breath. Here she is as a beautiful bride, quite obviously in the 70's. :)

She loves to tell the story about Dad's reaction to hearing that her bouquet would include baby's breath. From the way she tells it, he crinkled his nose, and asked in disbelief, "Baby's breath? Why would you want a flower that smells like a baby's breath? Yuck!" Or something to that effect. :)

I have to admit, I have never been a fan of baby's breath. When I said something about it to my fiance, his reaction was almost identical to Dad's!

But then I saw these pictures yesterday on Weddingbee. My heart skipped a beat. These are beautiful!

What do you think? Are the bouquets made up of baby's breath?

I am really looking forward to seeing more pictures of this wedding! The bouquets look so good with the black dresses! Could this be the cost effective bridesmaid bouquet option I have been looking for, with a throw back tribute to Mom's bouquet?


  1. Those are nice,very different. if you were going all white I love lily of the valleys. I don't know how much they are. I'll try to find a picture to send you


  3. i was thinking the same thing when i saw those photos. the bouquets may be simple but are so beautiful.

  4. I am not a big fan of baby's breath...but those bouquets looked really beautiful with the black dresses.


  5. I love baby's breath---- I might have done that if I hadn't already made my bouquets!

  6. It actually looks great. I like the crispness of the colors. I bet your mom would love the tribute to her bouquet!

  7. I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It
    is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the web will be a lot more
    useful than ever before.

  8. Hello there! This article couldn't be written any better! Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept talking about this. I am going to send this article to him. Pretty sure he'll have
    a great read. Many thanks for sharing!
