Of all the trends in wedding dresses right now, none has caught my eye quite like the use of feathers (usually ostrich). Like ruffles, only better. It must be heaven to float down the aisle in one of these beauties, whether it’s feather embellishments, a feather bodice (so Swan Lake) or a full feather skirt that seems to froth around the wearer like a wave. Here’s an inspirational roundup of feather wedding dresses, and we’ve found some gorgeous feather capes and boleros to share too! *Links in bold denote affiliate links.
