So my fiance and I have decided to go with a modern feel to our wedding and include ostrich feathers in the centerpieces (along with some small white flowers to soften the look – we’re not going for one of the palm tree looking centerpieces, for lack of better description).
In any event, since its a DIY project, I would really like to try it and see if it’s even feasible before I make a huge financial commitment. The problem is that I can’t find a place that sells ostrich feathers for a reasonable price.
Did anyone else encounter this problem? Or does anyone have an idea for a solution?
Thanks in advance!

Thank you Mrs. Leopard!! I really appreciate the help.
Based on the links you gave me, I bought some from ebay for a totally reasonable price. I hadn’t even thought of looking there – silly me!

Glad I could help!
Ebay is such a great place for DIY projects – I got my SIL’s favor boxes for super cheap.

Try Craftsetc.com and also what might help, I am a jazz and hip hop dancer, so always in our costume stores they carry such items for props and costume pieces. So that might be a avenue to check as well. Your local dance supply or costume store.
Hope that helps

Another option you can rent ostrich feather centerpieces. If you google "rent ostrich feather centerpieces" Rental companies will come up for you. They will travel to set up for you and remove them for you. Hope this helps out!!

I couldn’t find affordable plumes either so I called the company located closest to me and just asked them (point blank) – could they offer me a discount if I came down to the distribution center and purchased 200 plumes today. They knocked off 40% if I paid in cash. So, I took my husband, brother, and FBIL – paid cash and was out the door with beautiful plumes. It doesn’t hurt to ask. 😉

I have feathers in all colors and maybe you might want to consider renting your feathers. They are so much more cheaper than trying to buy them. Let me know and I can help you out

I realize the original post was 5 years ago but just in case anyone looking for feathers comes across this old post, I have 1000 black ostrich feathers that are still in original packaging. I am looking to sell them for 200.00. I paid 325 for them. We changed our venue after I had already bought them, and they just didn’t match my new theme. But they’re really nice and would be a great centerpiece for a classy wedding!!
