Olga – Kelly Faetanini
It doesn’t happen very often, but we were left speechless here at hitched HQ when we saw the Olga by Kelly Faetanini – it is so incredible. We love the decadent gold bodice, which has a feather style pattern picked out on it, and the fluffy, full, feathered skirt is the stuff dreams are made of. We need this dress.
16-124 – Berta Bridal
This Berta Bridal beauty is not for the faint-hearted. It has a plunging neckline and a sheer geometric pattern running through the dress. The feathered belt and shoulder detail are a super stylish touch. If this dress is a little too daring for you to wear to your ceremony, why not consider it as a wedding reception dress?
Cordelia – Jenny Packham
The Cordelia from Jenny Packham is the ideal choice for brides searching for an alternative wedding dress that is still beautifully glamorous. The feather detailing is absolutely mesmerising and reminiscent of old-Hollywood style glamour – just look at the glitter detailing amidst the feathers! This is the perfect choice if you’ve been searching for an off the shoulder wedding dress.
Eliza – House of Mooshki
Brides looking for a vintage wedding dress will adore the Eliza from House of Mooshki. The 1950s style wedding dress would look amazing paired with a retro wedding hairstyle and some unusual wedding shoes – it’s the ideal length for showing them off. We love the fun feather fringing around the hem; it’s so unusual.
Shredded Feather Dress - Elvi
Fans of Gatsby glamour will love this 1920s inspired wedding dress from plus-size fashion retailer Elvi, which features shredded feather detailing. As it costs just £129 it’s an ideal shout too if you’re looking for a wedding dress under £500. Imagine dancing the night away in this beauty – it was made for the dance floor!
Freya – Sassi Holford
Bridal separates are the hottest new trend on the wedding runways, and we adore this two piece wedding outfit from Sassi Holford. The Freya is made from a luxurious patterned fabric and has a fun feather fringe around the hem of the top – it might not be for the extremely ticklish, but it’s definitely the ultimate choice for the extremely stylish.
16-124 – Berta Bridal
If you like the idea of wearing a short wedding dress, this stunner from Berta Bridal could be the one. It features feather detailing all over the skirt, and elaborate feather details around the cuffs of the illusion sleeves – this is a gown for brides who love being the centre of attention.
This is a two in one wedding dress with an incredible feathered skirt. You can rock the feathered skirt on this Monique Lhuillier wedding dress for a dramatic walk down the aisle, or opt to add it on later to glam up your look for your evening party – the choice is yours!
Ledurne – Pronovias
This wedding dress from Pronovias is the ideal choice if you love the feathered wedding dress trend, but feel like you might look a bit Big-Bird-esque if you go for an all-out feathery gown. It has a classic fit and flare style, but the bodice detail is made up from soft white feathers.
Yoko – Francesca Miranda
This Francesca Miranda beauty is definitely not for wall-flowers, but it’s a great choice if you’re allergic to feathers – it has a feather motif strategically placed to spare your blushes on the bodice, and a fabulous but subtle feather pattern on the sheer skirt. Don’t over-indulge on the wedding cake if you choose to wear this dress…
3654 – Lazaro
Speaking of being allergic to feathers (it happens!), the 3654 from Lazaro is the perfect faux-feather option. The layered skirt is expertly cut to give the appearance of feathers, but without any of the tickly side-effects. We have fallen in love with the delicate bodice detail too.
Feathery Finishing Touches
Whether you love the feather trend so much you want to cover yourself in feathers for your wedding (and why not?) or you’re not sold on a feather wedding dress but you want some fun feather details, we’ve got some gorgeous feather accessories to finish your look off perfectly.
Consider a feathery bridal cover up to add some retro glam to your look. We love these from Ivy and Aster – the pink long sleeved one we kind of need for everyday life! It’s something you could buy for your wedding but then wear time and time again.
We love this bridal-white feathered fascinator from New Look – it’s ideal if you want a headpiece but aren’t sold on the idea of a veil or a jewelled accessory. The blush pink heels from Next feature an irresistible feather adornment – these are definitely bridal shoes you could wear again.
The birdcage veil from Pretty Eccentric with its feather flourishes is ideal for the vintage inspired bride. If you need a bridal clutch bag, Littlewoods has you sorted with this amazing feathered bag – it matches the shoes too! Finally, the feather shrug from Debenhams is perfect for dressing up a simple wedding dress.
