Here at Aspirational Bride HQ we’re currently having a flower crush on Gypsophila (also known commonly as baby’s-breath), and it seems so are lots of brides across the UK!

There are around 150 varieties, one of the most popular is Bristol Fairy. Those tiny trademark white (or even pink!) flowers last a long time, and always make a delicate yet significant impact – whether used as dainty ‘froth’ amongst other flowers or used on its own in huge pom-pom bundles.

Here lies the beauty of Gypsophila, it looks great on its own and also when combined with other flowers to soften more structured bouquets! It is also relatively inexpensive!

Using Gypsophila In Your Wedding Flowers

Gypsophila is also versatile enough for several styling options. You could incorporate it into your bouquet and then give your bridesmaids and flower girls Gypsophila only bouquets, or vice versa! It also looks very sweet when used as a delicate floral crown for flower girls.

Your florist could even make a wedding wreath or garland to decorate your venue, these are becoming incredibly popular and we predict wedding wreaths will become one of the latest wedding trends.

With regards to current 2014 wedding trends we think Gypsophila works especially well with the Boho Bride style, when displayed with mercury glass and on a banquet style table setting.

So then, are you planning on incorporating Gypsophila into your wedding day? We’d love to hear from you if you are!
