The passion for all things feathered just gets bigger. For the season to come designers have had a collective flight of fancy, giving us glamorous gowns that are embellished, top dressed or trimmed. That means even more options to flutter up that aisle drawing the admiration of the flock. Alternatively, wear feather jewels, shoes or accessories. The only rule with this show-off embellishment is to enjoy every moment as a bridal bird of paradise. Here’s how to work this most glamorous of bridal trims.
