Spice Up Your Wedding Bouquet...

An up and coming trend in wedding bouquets is adding new and exciting things to your bouquet such as feathers. These delicate trimmings are available in many colors and will bring to life your bouquet of flowers in a soft and subtle and even glammy way. And if you want a highly unusual and incredibly dramatic wedding bouquet, why not?... try peacock feathers!
Utilizing feathers for a bouquet was very popular at the turn of the century during the Victorian era. They were also popular items in bouquets in the late 1930s and the early 1940s. At one point, however, peacock feathers were considered to be bad luck, so they fell out of the picture until the 1980s when they were once again seen in centerpieces and floral bouquets.
Here are a few of my favorite bouquets...
This one screams out loud Hollywood Glam.
Black Magic Roses, Black Callas and Fern curls all complemented by Black Feathers

Roses are classic and no matter how you tie them together they always seem to have that elegant and romantic appeal. Here tied with Ostrich feathers it denotes a rich vintage feel.

I love the simple contrast and mix in this bouquet.
Brown Cymbidum Orchids, Apple Cymbidium Orchids, Roses and soft white feathers.
And what looks like an antique brooch gives it the final touch!

Which bouquet is your favorite? And what exciting piece did you or are you including in your bouquet?

Happy Planning!
