One of the best things about wedding dresses is that they're a once-in-a-lifetime chance to indulge all of your fashion fantasies. Most of us don't have many opportunities to wear feathers on a daily basis, but why not consider them as part of your wedding-day wardrobe?

Subtle Feathers

These wedding dresses from Priscilla of Boston, Matthew Christopher, Paloma Blanca and Carol Peretz, use feathers sparingly and subtly.

Fancy Feathers

This dress from Jenny Packham, and this one from Priscilla of Boston, on the other hand, are anything but sparing or subtle as they slather on the feathers.

Dramatic Feathers

If those seem a little more costumey than bridal, consider these gowns from Lazaro and Sarah Huston that are equally dramatic but more aisle-way than runway.

If you've already found your dream wedding dress and want to find other ways to incorporate feathers into your wedding-day look, consider adding feathers to your bouquet or adding a feather headpiece to your veil.
