    Those are stunning !!! What a unique idea. The only thing I would worry about is the representation that each of these items actually stand for. If you make them I assume that you are not going to use eagle feathers. As the photo that you have for the Bridesmaids is actually something we would use for smudging and is sacred. These items are not supposed to be touched during our moon time. Do some research first to make sure you are not using these items in a manner that goes against our cultural beliefs.

    Its not so much the native american fan (although very beautiful) rather just a feather bouquet. My Fiance hunts and I am using the feather from the birds that he and his family “caught” all over in my wedding. We are doing more of a nature type wedding so I thought it would be nice to use the feathers as a bouquet as well but wasnt sure how to do so just yet. We are using feathers for the men.

    It depends on the style of your wedding, but feathers would be totally worked if it went with your theme.

    @kris325:  I think its a great idea. I love seeing different cultural elements being brought into a ceremony, it really shows a representation of the couple. The one for the bride is so beautiful! I say you should go for it!

    We have alot of pheasant and Turkey feathers. Currently I have a mix in my centerpieces. Not sure what I will do for the bouquet. The male pheasants how this blue green hue to them and the hens have a stripped type of pattern to them. Turkey feathers are much more broad and are like a dark brown bottown with a light brown top.

    I love the first and last photos!

    Incorperating a part of your culture into your wedding is a lovely idea and the way you are going about it, is stunning.
