One of our favourite types of flowers, either used separately or in combination is the rose and baby's breath. Arrangements do not have to be sophisticated or professionally done for there flowers to look fantastic. If you decide to do the arrangements yourself go to this site http://apracticalwedding.com/2009/10/our-diy-well-dit-wedding-flowers/ for some easy and no-hassle guidance. It is definitely not rocket science.

The rose fits into any theme, modern or vintage, and goes extremely well with other decor items like birdcages, glass jars, hessian and wood.

Baby's breath on the other hand adds that ethereal touch to your day, complete like you are in a fairy tale. This flower works excellent in table arrangements, bouquets and pew arrangements. You can not go wrong with this choice of flower. It is also easy to work with for arrangements which means you will save on florist costs.
