Bold Statements

The wispy white look of this popular filler has been exchanged for a much bolder look. Many of today’s weddings feature gypsophila in masses: sometimes as the only flower in the bridesmaids’ bouquets to complement the brides mixed flower bouquet. Dainty blooms are also frequently used in large masses for stunning table arrangements, pew end decorations, groomsmen boutonnieres, arches, and even headbands have all been revolutionized with the comeback of these beautiful clouds of white blooms.

Mixing it up

If you still prefer a mixed bouquet over the single flower arrangement, baby’s breath still lends itself well to this option. Again, its style has been changed dramatically since the 80’s. Today’s arrangements often feature the blooms in tight bunches mixed with other flowers, rather than the more spindly, spread out look. In fact, some popular flower pairings include white lilies, white calla lilies, hydrangeas, roses, poppies, and ranunculus.

Learning the Types of Gyp

Baby’s breath is the most common name given to Gypsophila, which is a genus with more than 100 species or varieties! However, they are usually categorized in 3 large groups acording to their cluster size: Small, medium and large. In the United States the most popular varieties in the floral industry are: Million Star, Mirabella, New Love, Dynamic Love, Overtime, Funtime, Perfecta, among others. Each of the varieties are generally white, and are available all year round from farms in South America, Europe and California.
