    it really just depends on how it’s done and your taste.  there are good and bad.  in general i’d say yes though.

    I’m not a fan of feathers and flowers mixed, but that’s just my taste.  

    I feel like a person should commit to one or the other; the majority of the bouquets I see look like a hot mess with feathers sticking out of it.

    We did feathers in the BMs’ bouquets, and I thought the mix looked great (though the flowers themselves were a different story).

    @GreenEyedMoon:  I think for your theme (masquerade, if I remember right?), the feathers are PERFECT and one of the only occassions that I really like them!

    Most pictures I see turn out like this:

    And I just don’t get it.

    It isn’t my personal style, but it can be pretty if it’s done right.

    @LindsayMaree:  Yes, masquerade.  And thank you!

    I don’t like the kind where they just stick out hither and thither.  I liked mine and the one xicaB posted because it’s just a ring of feathers around the bottom.

    I decided to add feathers as a unique touch to my bridesmaids bouquets and mine. When I put them randomly in my bouquet my mother said it looked like a feather duster, (lol) which I agreed, but when I placed them around the outside to border the flowers it looked really pretty. So I’d say it’s in how they are placed.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the look of mixed flowers and feathers. It will be in my centerpieces as well as bridal bouquets and boutennieres.

    As long as it’s done properly it can look stunning.
