Feathers to be a key wedding theme in 2013

Feathers are set to be a key theme for weddings in 2013, according to borrowedandblue.com.

Large, flamboyant feathers will be turned into exotic centrepieces – as well as appearing on dresses and in bouquets this year. The huge variety of different feathers available means that brides-to-be have a lot of choice when it comes to creating their chosen theme.

Adding them to hair accessories will be a key look for the spring/summer weddings and a feathered cake may not be totally out of place at a wedding reception venue this year.

According to newcastlebride.com.au it’s not just subtle colours that are set to be popular. Peacock feathers have been turned into unique centrepieces teamed with bright blue flowers and fresh white roses placed in glass vases. For a bigger, grander alternative, brightly-coloured ostrich feathers arranged into a large plume create a dramatic, eye-catching display for the head table.

Small, sweet place-markers have also had little peacock feathers put in along with fresh flowers to create a unique look, ideal for the springtime.

If feathers are going to form the main theme of the wedding, there are dozens of dresses covered in feathers that can make the bride the main focus.
