If you are more of an outgoing and spunky type of bride, feathers and beads are going to reflect that bold personality! These elements can also be brought into the decor of your special. For example, embellishments on your table numbers, subtle accents in your centrepieces or motifs in the stationary. There are a number of ways these elements can come together to give a cohesive feel to your day!
