Wedding Cake of the Day:
Baby's Breath

Baby's breath tends to get a bad rap, used primarily as filler in mediocre grocery-store bouquets. But don't completely rule it out—a talented florist can create elegant, very romantic arrangements with the wallet-friendly flowers, like the oversize bridal bouquet seen in today's featured wedding. Similarly, baby's breath can also be an elegant way to decorate your wedding cake—I love this design by The Caketress, featuring baby's breath encircling the base of the sugar flower-embellished cake.
