I’m sooo confused!!! I started off wanting to use ostrich feather centerpieces because I love the way they look. Now that I’ve seen baby’s breath centerpieces, I really love those also….I’ve already purchased some ostrich feathers but still need many more……would it be too much to use some baby’s breath centerpieces and some ostrich feathers centerpieces? Or, I was also thinking about maybe using the ostrich feather centerpieces to decorate the gift, and placecard tables and using the baby’s breath centerpieces on the guest/head tables…. of course whichever I use will be placed in 24″ eiffel tower or trumpet vases……I NEED YOUR HELP BEES!!!

Do you have any pics to show for comparison?

I think it really depends on the feel of the wedding you’re going for. Ostrich feathers are more dramatic, baby’s breath more sweet. Personally I love baby’s breath — we’re using it in our tall table centerpieces with lots of floating candles around! — but we’re also going for a more vintage charm, no colored lights or anything like that.
While I don’t think they go together that well, I’ve never seen an attempt to use both, so I could be wrong! Your idea of using them in separate locations might work, if you don’t really look at both at once (like if the gift/placecard tables are off to the side, and the dining tables in the middle of the room). Good luck, I’m sure whatever you come up with will be beautiful!

@Miss Orchard: The ostrich feather centerpiece is one I made….the baby’s breath centerpiece I found on an old post on this website.

Although too showy for me, my vote goes for the ostrich feathers. The reason being: baby’s breath have a scent to them (which I personally hate), and it’s not recommended to have scented flowers on the table as the smell will compete with the taste of the food.

I agree that they’re totally different looks and probably shouldn’t be used together. It’s hard to choose one without knowing your general decor concept.
