Fashion Friday: Birds of a feather

Here at West Weddings, we love the idea of going for something a bit different and unique when it comes to wedding fashion. Inspired by Alexander McQueen’s show-stopping gown – the same one Kim Kardashian wore in her Vogue editorial – we created this feathery bridal look for Fashion Friday. Check out our inspiration boards on Pinterest and Polyvore, and let’s flock together on Twitter!

Birds of a feather

Birds of a feather by westweddings featuring a white dress


Clockwise from centre

This white dress is ethereal and elegant with its fitted spaghetti strap bodice and feathery skirt. Ok, so our chosen Alice and Olivia dress is not really made out of birds’ feathers, but the overlapping petals mimic the texture creating a graceful effect. Layered ribbons and sequined swirls detail the lace bodice, while silk-organza layers bring soft volume to the skirt – all in all, a gown that will make you feel fashionably fabulous!

This is by far our favourite hair piece for a beautiful bridal look. If you don’t fancy wearing real feathers in your hair, then a delicate diamante design, by top bridal designer Jenny Packham, imitating the shape would make an awe-worthy alternative.  

Whatever your favourite flowers and colours for the wedding posy, why not add a unique edge with feathers? We’re swooning over this bouquet made with white calla lilies and peonies, pink roses, and white feather accents. 
Soft feather embellishments and sparkling crystals make this bridal clutch a true scene-stealer! A gorgeous white clutch gathered at the top and bottom in soft satin for a stylish bride – perfect for carrying your make-up and tissues- only for happy tears, of course! The focal piece is a beautiful dangle crystal clip brooch, which makes it one-of-a-kind. 

We love a pretty pair of satin sandals to complete a wedding day look and this feminine design by Ann Taylor is exactly what a bride needs! Adorned with wispy feather detail, they can help create a head-to-toe luxurious look – now’s the time to get shopping!

Say yes to these delicate white feather drop earrings for a touch of feminine chic on your special day. This pretty pair are a steal at only £3 – hurry before the go!
