I think feathers are my new wedding obsession. I just got my hands on a HUGE box of white ostrich feathers that I would love to incorporate in my old world romantic style wedding.

My big obsession is this bouquet.

How do you think this dusty pink feather collar would look with pale pink Peonies instead of roses? Little less structured looking...

I love the idea of using feathers on the cake table.

Redrose, We are going for a ivory and sage green with pink accents. The pink will show up only in the ceremony, because it doesnt really work in reception space. I am LOVING the dusty pink feathers in the bouquet. SO romantic!!

glueck I love the look of the peonies with the feathers. With a pale pink highlighted in both the flowers and the feathers, I think it could work well. Are you making your own?

love, love, love the marie antoinette feel of the feathers.

I wish they went with my location better, but its english tudor...doesn''t really mesh with Louis XIV.

I think it would lovely with peonies. I would keep the faded look of those colors whether peonies or roses...that dusty pink shade is to die for.

I had a light pink bouquet with white feathers underneath it. I also used pink and white feathers (and a darker pink/purple feather in the ceremony pieces). My wedding was very marie antoinette so it really made it come together.

I''m a big fan of using feathers! The white feathers underneath my bouquet were chicken feathers to give it a light fluffy look. They used ostritch feathers in some of the other pieces.

You can see them in my wedding thread here:

Wow! Thanks Barcelona for adding some yummy feather pics to the thread. The last bouquet in apricot and oranges was BEAUTIFUL.

Violet, your wedding overall was amazing. The feather usage was elegant and vintagey....so great! Thanks for sharing!

I am definitely feeling the peonies with the feathers. I think I m going to go for it!

Violet, if you check back into this thread, can you tell me if you provided the feathers or if your florist did

Thanks!!
