One thing most brides have in common no matter budget or style is the desire to personalize their wedding. Every once in a while, an idea comes along that it so beautiful that brides shriek in delight when they see it! Such is the reaction brides have to feathers.
Many brides first saw feathers at play in Sex and the City: The Movie. Carrie Bradshaw wore a bird in her hair on her doomed wedding to Big. While most SATC fans are quick to agree that fashion played a character role in the series all along, many will also agree that the fashion on the show is sometimes a bit over the top. So while most brides are not requesting whole birds to wear, many are using it for inspiration, donning birdcage veils with feathers or feathered fascinators in place of a more traditional veil or headpiece on their wedding day. Some brides even switch from their more traditional veils to a feathered fascinator for the reception.
Feathers can also be used to add texture to a more traditional floral bouquet. If you’re brave enough, your bouquets, centerpieces, and boutonnieres can all be made entirely from feathers. Feathers are now available in a wide array of colors and styles (peacock, ostrich, goose biots, etc.) to match any theme you may envision.
