Lovely Plumes

Posted September 21st, 2010 by Penny Skoufaras. Comments (16).

The feather’s fashion career dates all the way back to the 11th century.  During the Middle Ages, men and women alike of high social standing, would wear feathers to display their status.  Even though long, lush, colourful plumes emerged as a stylish accessory during the 17th century, they did not become popular until the late Victorian and Edwardian eras (1890-1914).  The feather denoted great elegance and sophistication.  Since feathers were widely used in cabarets during that time, feathers became alluring, depicting both a woman’s sensuality and fragility.  Incorporating feathers in your wedding; wether it be in your centrepieces, bouquet or wedding accessories, will surely give you a vintage glamor and regal feel on your special day.  Check out these fun feather ideas!
