Wedding day decor and fashion have taken flight with feathers. Whether its soft, white, marabou accents on a veil to rows of them filling out the skirt of a wedding gown to jewel toned peacock plumes accenting opulent flower arrangements, these light and airy elements add just the right amount of magic. The glamour attached to this new trend is best saved for brides who want to add a touch of glamourous whimsy to their surroundings on the big day.
This photo gallery on Martha Stewart Weddings left me floored-and in need of visiting my nearest jeweler. These cakes are inspired by vintage jewelry from several opulent eras, including the Art Nouveau and Victorian period. My personal favorite is the cake inspired by the 1920s Art Deco trend. Its geometric details add a modern touch to the traditional all-white confection that has become synonymous with wedding cakes.
For brides with a steampunk edge to their style, I highly recommend Nouveau Motley. Their collection of jewelry-full of ornate filigree and cameos- will add the perfect accent to your neo-Victorian aesthetic. Even your groom can get in on the trend with their collection of ornate cufflinks. Even for those who aren’t heavily influenced by this style movement, any bride or groom who wants to add a touch of Old World elegance to their look should definitely take a look at their wares.
By the way, my offer still stands. Please send your Real Weddings to firstname.lastname@example.org
