love birds

Birds are everywhere and I’m not talking about the actual, real-life, sqwalking, kind. Or referencing a certain social networking site! Bird-inspired; fashion, homeware, art, jewellery… it’s a trend that shows no signs of swooping off anytime soon (forgive me, I needed to get at least one awful pun/joke in!). Whatever the reason (we like feathers? we like bird-watching?) this trend has emerged over the last few years and seems more popular than ever right now.

Birds are often viewed as a symbol of nature and love. Everyone knows that seeing two magpies is universally recognised as bringing joy and doves are a sign of peace. This makes our winged-friends the perfect symbol and trend to incorporate into your wedding styling. Here’s some stylish ways to add some bird-inspired touches to your day…

For favours: The Louis Bird Brooch, would look lovely pinned onto a napkin or place setting. They have quite a retro feel and come in variety of stylishly, muted colours. These Personalised Bird House Favours, look quirky and would be great for nature lovers and an eco-inspired wedding day. Finally the You Are Lovely Badges, are so sweet. They ‘chirp’ a lovely sentiment and would look great adorning rustic themed tables.

For styling: These Silver Bird Place Names, are chic and versatile with the silver finish. Touches like these Lavender Birds, are great for hanging around your venue or possibly as favours too? I love this Vintage Birdcage Table Plan, it is perfect for attaching your seating details or for your guests to pin cards to. Claryce Designs, do a wonderful range of tags and postcards. They have an antique feel and range of quirky bird-inspired designs, that can be used in a number of cute, creative and touching ways, on your day.

Styling you: These are my top three bird-inspired bits, for you and your bridesmaids; the Peacock Feather Haircomb, the White Feather Flowers Fascinator and the Lovebirds Necklace.
