5 ways you can incorporate feathers into your wedding
September 24, 2014
Feathers are taking over weddings around the world, with brides-to-be realising they can be the perfect addition to a glamorous day or help to create a rustic theme.
Taking your wedding to the next level can be as simple as paying attention to detail. Here are some ways you can add that special touch with feathers as your inspiration.
Opting for a glorious, classic wedding dress? Add a quirky and laid back touch to your gown with feather accessories, such as earrings, hairpieces or shoes. Creating juxtaposition with a tailored gown and loose, wavy hair adorned with feathers makes for a delightful wedding look.
With a classic cream invitation, you can add that little something extra with a water coloured feather background, painted border or patterned inside of the envelope. You could also include real feathers with the tie that holds everything together or loose in the envelope.
A combination of flowers, feathers and leaves makes for utterly beautiful centrepieces. On your buffet table, where the cake is standing, or off the the side you could put a striking arrangement with peacock feathers, aquamarine fronds and a selection of green, blue and beige flowers. On the tables, opt instead for smaller arrangements so your guests don't have anything obscuring their view.
Feather boutonnieres are a great way for the groom and groomsmen to accessorise in a masculine way that will still tie in with the rest of the wedding. Small, spotted feathers with more sturdy ones that are the colour of your wedding theme are a great way to tie everything together.
If you don't want to go for a traditional bouquet made up of flowers, creating a more rustic one out of feathers, leaves and twigs is a great approach. With soft, dusky pink feathers, pearls and blossoms, you can can also construct a soft and glamorous bouquet.
