*COMPLETELY UPDATED FOR 2021* 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 flirty feather accents around the neckline or hem, a feather bodice (so Swan Lake), or a full feather skirt that seems to froth around the wearer like a wave. They’ve been making a big impact on the bridal catwalks, and they’re perfect for the bold, whimsical feel that we’re seeing in 2021 bridal fashion. Whether your style is boho, glamorous, romantic, or Gatsby vintage, there’s a feather gown out there to catch your fancy. So here’s an inspirational roundup of ostrich feather wedding dresses, and some gorgeous feather bridal capes and boleros to share too!
