    I think the baby’s breath will be fine and the bouquets don’t have to match.

    I don’t really think posts by others saying that they don’t like your flower choice is really going to help you.

    So, maybe I can… How about tieing the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets in red ribbons that match your red bouquet colors. If you’re doing a vineyard theme, experiment with adding some grape leaves into their bouquets for some greenery and color. Prehaps some small curly grape vines in there as well. Little delicate ones. Think tendrils.

    What do you think?

    I’m having orange and red flowers for myself and the bridesmaids but centerpieces will be red sunflowers with a few yellow sunflowers thrown in (my favorite flower).  At one time I wanted the bridesmaids to carry only sunflowers, but then I decided I want their flowers to be similar to mine and use the sunflowers as centerpieces.

    IMO centerpieces and bridal party flowers do not need to match exactly.  As long as they fit in with the theme you’re fine.  In fact IMO the ceremony and reception are two completely different things so have fun with them and do contrasting ideas.

    Love it!  Baby’s breath seems so romantic to me.  Agree with @Eight6Eleven about the red ribbon to tie in the red color with an all-baby’s-breath bouquet.  You can have small vases/mason jars filled with baby’s breath to decorate the cake table, gift table, etc. if you want to tie it in more with the centerpieces.
