I love the idea of using a feather, especially if the bride is carrying a feather bouquet.

Then of course, there is Etsy. Full of unique creations!

You can of course use different things. I’ve seen beautiful raw edged silk flowers in fabrics of the bridesmaids gowns, coral and seashells for a beach side wedding, rust coloured leaves in autumn, herbs at a garden wedding bound with ribbon, wheat at a farm wedding. The only limit is your imagination!
