Making a Statement on Your Big Day [2024]: The Best Wedding Dresses with Eye-Catching Feather Embellishments

The Best Wedding Dresses with Eye-Catching Feather Embellishments

Wedding season is fast approaching, and everyone wants to make a statement on their big day. Vogue released wedding trends that are in and out for 2023. 

This year we are saying goodbye to: 

  • Wedding hashtags disappear from Instagram stories within 24 hours, leaving no trace of your beautiful wedding. 
  • Matching bridesmaid dresses that force every woman into the same uninteresting clothing rather than giving them fashion autonomy to pick dresses to fit their personalities and enhance their best features. 
  • Welcome bags and fireworks that are wasteful and end up being rubbish anyway. 
  • Signature cocktails that the bride and groom may love, but everyone else wants their favourite drink. 

So what trends are taking off this year? Wedding planners recommend the following: 

  • Midday ceremonies are like the matinee of weddings and are very understated. Midday celebrations allow for sunshine and warmth (especially while the nights are still cool) and can save you money on an expensive open bar since fewer people will drink heavily during the daytime. 
  • Intricately designed ceilings full of lamps and flowers are another trend we love. These provide shade during a midday ceremony and create a dreamy atmosphere at night that gives the feeling of being in a fairy garden. 
  • Dramatic and over-the-top cakes should be in the Great British Baking Off and are the centre of the wedding decor. 
  • Stylish transport like the wedding cars from Premier Carriage will allow you to leave your wedding in comfort and style fit for royalty. 
  • After-parties designed like speakeasies with hidden lounge scenes are essential for an evening ceremony. Who wants a perfect night to end when the weather is excellent and the drinks are flowing? 
  • And finally, gorgeous, eye-catching dresses with feather embellishments are the go-to wedding dresses this year! 

You might be concerned about adding feathers to your wedding gown, and whether you can match your style to the year’s trend, so we are here to help. We have compiled the 15 best-feathered dresses to ensure you stand out on your big day, but you also can pick something that represents your personality, suits your body type and has you feeling your very best! 

The Extravagant Bride  

If you are a bride who loves an extravagant dress, this one’s for you! This maxi dress has a deep plunging v-neckline, yet it also sits perfectly off the shoulders. Though the gown is sheer lace throughout, it is adorned with beautiful, intricate pearl works that allow the dress the perfect modesty while subtly letting your skin show through. In addition, fluffy tufts of feathers tie it together for the perfect gown for that extra bride

With a dress like this, you want to leave your neckline open with hair in an updo and either a simple necklace or none. Pair with a pair of glittery earrings, and you will be ready to walk the runway to your groom.

The Traditional Bride 

Who doesn’t love a traditional gown? This strapless, floor-length beauty has a sweetheart top fitted until the knees and flares into a simple, easy-to-manage train. This dress is not sheer like its extravagant counterpart but is a solid fabric adorned with lace and feathers in a simple, gorgeous combination that comes in ivory and nude colours. 

This look would look great with hair up or down, as long as it’s paired with a simple, sheer lace veil. Dress it up with some exciting jewellery, or leave it simple. Either way, you will look ready for the cover of any bridal magazine.

The Off-Shoulder Strapless 

Do you love an off-shoulder look and strapless? Who says you have to decide?! This gown offers the best of both worlds; you will love the tiny details. It starts with an off-the-shoulder, sweetheart neckline and flows into a fit-and-flare design with a simple train. This gown has a solid fabric topped with lavish beadwork and feathering throughout. The off-the-shoulder straps are delicate strands of cloth adorned with feathers. 

This style will look fantastic with any hairstyle and does not require a veil. Simple and intricate jewellery is enough to bring this together without overdoing it so the dress can remain the centre of attention.

Pair with a funky heel, as one leg will play peek-a-boo throughout the night through a slit in the skirt, and aim for some fun coloured makeup to tie into your bold demeanour.

The Tiny Detail Lover 

Finally, a dress for the bride that loves paying attention to the tiny details that many often miss. This dress is stunning with an O neckline and sweeping train. Though the fabric is solid, it is topped with delicate lace and highlights the natural waist with a subtle satin belt. But the deep-v side and back cutouts set this dress apart. The side cutouts open and meet at the core, while the back v is accented with tiny intricate strands of lace. The dress is completed with tufts of feathers at each shoulder to create the perfect show-stopping piece.

This dress looks best with a hairstyle that allows guests to see you back, such as an updo or a side-swept style. No necklace and minimal earrings will ensure the dress takes centre stage.

The Princess gown 

For the bride who wants to feel like a modern-day Cinderella. Your dream gown would have a sweetheart top is corset-style and covered in lace and jewellery, with dainty sleeves that fall off the shoulder. Though it doesn’t have feathers, the feathering material throughout this ball gown has a vintage feel that bunches up in all the right places. 

This dress would look best with dainty jewellery, or even none at all; instead, opt for an updo complete with a tiara that will have you ready to hop in your horse-drawn carriage before starting your happily ever after. 

Select a feathery beauty and catch everyone’s eye on your wedding day! 

Remember, incorporating feathers doesn’t mean sacrificing your style to match current trends. Whether you opt for a classic dress or even have a trouser suit in mind, any of these options will ensure you are the centre of attention and look and feel fantastic on your special day.
