For the longest time, birds have been associated with wedding celebrations. The tradition of releasing white doves is meant to symbolize the hope for a good marriage. In case you do decide to forgo this time-honored practice, you can still incorporate avian-themed details into your wedding.
While white doves are often associated with weddings, you can also explore using other bird species as inspirations. Some couples decorate their reception venue with paper cranes. These are quite apt for weddings, since cranes represent love and loyalty. Other quirky couples choose to go with penguin details--penguins symbolize love and devotion to the family.
Some of the couples we've featured had fun weddings with avian-themed details. For ideas, see our gallery below.
