Baby's Breath has been a popular wedding flower for years. It is packed in grower's bunches, which means it comes to florists by weight rather than by a counted number of stems.
Many of my competitors ask that you buy at least 10 bunches to purchase online. Uh . . . that's a LOT! I let brides purchase by singles bunches - or save more by buying in larger quantities. Either way - you are in control of how much you want to buy.
Gypsophila looks lovely whether used as a filler flower or massed in larger quantities as a stand alone bouquet. It is a cheaper flower and is a nice way to fill out a bouquet with a larger, airier look.
I've seen DIY tutorials around on the web where the designer says that she bought her baby's breath from a grocery store or discount store.
That's fine - but it's not always the bargain that you think it is. Pictured below is a full grower's bunch. This is the way that a professional flower shop buys it.
Bunches sold in stores to regular consumers are usually divided and you are not always getting a full grower's bunch. Thus you usually have to buy two, three or more bunches to get the same amount as you would in a single grower's bunch.
