I don't care that some wedding planners have deemed baby's breath as being out of style. I absolutely love it, and think it adds a sweet touch to a wedding. I wore it in my hair at my first wedding in the 80's and I love to add it to my floral arrangements and wreaths. This is a lovely idea to decorate the path to the alter.

With all the hobby and craft centers out there now, I could see finding a pail or similar handled container in many colors and sizes that would accommodate the depth and fullness you would want for the flowers. But you could also add florist foam or even crinkled Saran Wrap on the bottom to help anchor the stems into position if needed, and this would last long enough for any ceremony and reception. The florist foam actual holds moisture as well, and you would not need to,poke the stems into it, just use it here and there to brace and secure the stems more firmly into the pail. Super look and idea!

I'm incorporating baby's breath into my own wedding decor. I love the soft, yet whimsical feel it provides.

Hi there! I think it really depends on how big you want your bunches of Baby's Breath to be---but in either case, I would find a pail that's short, but also deep enough to hold a little water. I'm sorry I can't give you an exact measurement, but I hope this helps!

What size pail do you recommend?
