    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!

    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.
