Is this not a show stopping gown! Monique Lhuillier is one of my favorite bridal designers, she knows how to mix sexy chic and sophistication into one look without going over the top on the sexy and adds the right amount of class without the dress looking too stuffy or boring. This is the perfect gown for a feather themed wedding with it's skirt full of what else...feathers! I love the bow on the lace bodice, it's that touch of class combined with a touch of sexy that I was referring to!

Feathers can inspire many styles and don't have to stand alone in a feather themed wedding. This beautiful feather invitation was created for a bohemian inspired wedding photo shoot full of wild flowers, grain, and feathers in the bouquet, a flowy dress and headpiece, and little tee-pees on the place settings. Feathers are a magical detail that can complete a relaxed bohemian theme or give an elegant ball room a whimsical touch. Add them to any theme when you are looking for that last minute, easy DIY project to help pull your look together.
