If you ask us, baby's breath (scientific name: gypsophila) gets a bad rap. Most people think of it as just a filler flower—something you'd stick amid a bunch of roses to make the bouquet seem larger. But when used on its own en masse—like in wedding-ceremony decorations—the flower takes on a wonderful cloudlike quality and has a soft, romantic, ethereal feel. And the end results can be quite dazzling.
A couple of other pluses: Baby's breath is budget friendly (it's much more affordable than many in-demand wedding flowers like garden roses and peonies), not to mention long lasting (so it won't wilt in warmer climates, like many flowers do).
