When Pippa Middleton’s florist incorporated gypsophila — sometimes maligned as “filler” —into the wedding day designs, tony publications such as Town & Country took note.

When Pippa Middleton’s florist incorporated gypsophila — sometimes maligned as “filler” —into the wedding day designs, tony publications such as Town & Country took note.

Have a bride who shuns gypsophila as “filler flower”? Try this one-word retort: Pippa.

In a recent write-up of Pippa Middleton’s highly anticipated wedding to financier James Matthew, Town & Country magazine argued the royal in-law had made “a strong case for the comeback of baby’s breath.”

At last weekend’s nuptials, an impressive display of pink and white roses “spilled over windowsills and topped pillars, while larger tree-like structures of bark, greenery, and white blooms decorated the aisle of the historic parish,” according to the magazine. “But our favorite flower moment of the day would have to be the bride’s use of baby’s breath,” which appeared in the crowns worn by the bridesmaids and in a heart-shaped wreath carried by Princess Charlotte.

The overall floral arrangements, including Middleton’s petite bouquet, “reflected the British countryside in early summer and were filled with fragranced flowers including Sweet Peas, Peonies, garden Roses, Philadelphus, Freesia, Astilbe, and Jasmine,” Sue Barnes, founder of Lavender Green Flowers, told People magazine. “All designs were made to measure and were totally bespoke, taking hours to create and perfect — it really was a labor of love!”
