Head Over Heels for: Feathers

head over heels for feathers

We are pretty obsessed with feathers here at GWS – did you see the boho feather shoot from this morning? :) Well, this afternoon let’s look at all the fun ways feathers have and can be used for your wedding. So many great ideas from bouquets to invites to boutonnieres to garland to your dress and shoes! Which is your favorite look?  {feather print above from groundwork}


Love them mixed in a bouquet! Top left by Primary Petals from this wedding, feather + spoon bouquet from this wedding, feather + protea bouquet by Petal via Wedding Chicks, feather + green orchid bouquet from this wedding

feather boutonnieres

Love them for the guys too! These feather boutonnieres are all by Pomp And Plumage which I totally love. The fabric feather boutonnieres below is a super cute DIY also!

feather garland

And love the idea of hanging feathers for garland! From feathers mixed with tassels, to these pretty paper feathers from this wedding to the feathers dipped in gold paint below, all make for quite a statement!

Feathers on cakes are so pretty! Top left is by Erica O’Brien and photo by Jose Villa, love the simplicity of this cake by Sweets Bakeshop via Ruffled Blog, a cluster of feathers or more elegant like this cake captured by Steve Steinhardt Photography.


Invites by Champagne Press, Love Vs. Design, Wedding Paper Divas, and Minted.


Pretty feathers for your hair! Designs by Mignonne Handmande, Lo Boheme, Glided Shadows and Twigs and Honey. Or maybe some feathers on your accessories is more your style. Love this beaded handbag by Untamed Petals, feather necklace and feather ring – all so chic!



Feathers in fashion are also pretty big right now. Love the short feather dress from J. Crew, the feather caplet this bride wore, the feathers on this long wedding dress from BHLDN and this pretty feather sashby James Coviello. Or maybe feathers on your shoes! These top beauties come in a range of colors by Badgley Mischka, feather clips by Twigs and Honey, metallic leather feather shoes, and feather pumps from BHLDN.


So, will you be incorporating feathers into your wedding? And if so, I’d love to hear how in the comments! :)
