With the right styling, seen here at the Reem Acra runway show, wearing feathers in lieu of a veil can feel fashion-forward rather than freaky.

Flower crowns at weddings aren’t going anywhere. If you’re getting married in a field or garden or simply going for an earthy vibe, a floral garland like this one — shown at the Jenny Lee runway show — is a sweet option.
