Inspiration: Black Swan


Sexy yet fashionable thriller, Black Swan has sparked creativity everywhere.  From ballerinas, glittering tiaras and bountiful feathers, there is much inspiration for those looking to dress their event up with a flair of the dramatic.

Clockwise:  Stacked Feather Cake from Cakes 4 Fun; Black Feather Halter Dress from Unique Vintage; Rose, rhinestone feather and satin bridal bouquet; Topsy Turvy Handmade Missy White Feather Headband from Unique Vintage; Beautiful gilded branch draped in crystals and accompanied by feathers in an oversized snifter of feathers and rose petals styled by Liza Chung photographed by Agnes Lopez

When working with feathers and rhinestones or crystals, the concept within itself is already “big”; there can be a thin line between glamorous and downright gaudy.  It can be tempting, and at times almost oblivious to cross, but remember that less can mean more.  Beautiful ostrich plumes can be purchased in various colors rather inexpensively if you have your vision in mind.   You can create masterpieces like this beautiful centerpiece below, or inspire your design by going with a modern, artful concept like this angel feathers wedding cake.

If you’re inspired, remember a swan is beautiful for its simplicity in color and grace.  But don’t be afraid to be daring with color and lighting (as shown above) or make a statement with quality workmanship and detail.
