A feathered clutch bag is another gorgeous way to add something fun to your look – you could also give clutch bags to your maids for some cute matching style.
You can also embrace the feather wedding trend in your bridal bouquet. Speak to your florist and see how feathers can work for you. If you are having a pretty pastel bouquet then ivory and pale pink ostrich feathers can add some delicate texture to your bouquet.
If instead you are opting for a bright bouquet filled with vibrant tones then think about using peacock feathers to enhance and bring out the blue tones of your bouquet. Or for something more rustic, pheasant feathers can add a rustic shade and the longer length can add a more un-done feel to your bouquet.
