Should you choose a feather wedding dress for the big day?
If lace feels a little too traditional for your personal style, then you may want to choose a feather wedding dress for your big day! Feather gowns are made for standing out, with a bold look that toes the line between couture and party-ready. They’re perfect for fashion-forward babes that want to have some fun as they say their “I do”s — and look fabulous at the same time!
However, feather wedding dresses aren’t for everyone. If your style is more sleek and no-fuss, then you may want to forgo the feathers for your walk down the aisle. But that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate a little fluttery fun into your wedding wardrobe — we’ve found some stunning feather dresses that would be perfect for a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or reception outfit change!
How to Accessorize and Style Your Feather Wedding Dress
When styling feather wedding dresses, keep your accessories simple to let the whimsy of the gown shine through. Feather-adorned gowns already make such a bold and stylish statement, so you want accessories that elevate your ensemble without going too over-the-top.
A sleek pair of white satin heels or some glittery statement earrings will add a little somethin’ something’ to your look, while still keeping the feathers center stage. We also love styling feather wedding dresses with accessories that are equally as festive and whimsical, like a retro birdcage wedding veil or some sparkly embellished pumps. Which brings us to our next FAQ…
What shoes go best with feather wedding dresses?
So how do you narrow down which shoes go best with your feather wedding dress? While nothing is off-limits, we do recommend choosing kicks that complement the color and style of your gown.
For example, if your dress is super maximalist, with fluttering feathers and sparkly embellishments, then you may want to opt for simple heels. White pumps will give your look a classic vibe, while a metallic tone like silver or gold will add a touch of glamour that matches the gown’s delicate and whimsical design.
On the other hand, glittery embellished heels are perfect for gowns without a ton of details. Add some sparkle with crystal-studded sandals, or up the glam factor with a pair of pearlcore-inspired pumps. And when in doubt, embrace the drama of your feather wedding dress by styling it with some equally festive feather-trimmed heels!
