Maybe it’s the whole “sitting in a tree" thing, but for whatever reason, birds just make for super sweet wedding décor. And they are so versatile! You can do adorable songbirds at a vintage wedding, earthy nests for a rustic wedding, or exotic feathers for a black-tie affair. Here are our favorite bird décor ideas.

Set the tone for a fun and classic wedding with this bright bird save-the-date:

For a rustic wedding, choose invites with a more natural, organic feel. Or, for a modern wedding, fold colorful paper into cranes and use them to prop up your escort cards:

A variety of little birdhouses in a row are great on the escort card table at an eclectic wedding:

Flowers & Décor
You can’t go wrong with this neutral feathered bouquet; it’s as beautiful on the beach as it is in a barn:

Birdcages are gorgeous anywhere. You can put candles in them on tables, hang them from the ceiling, or just use them as a pretty prop:

Wedding Cakes
This rustic cake is so beautiful — love the twig accent!

Don’t limit yourself to the cake’s topper; let a flock of birds cover your cake. Watercolor-style birds turn this cake into a piece of art. And the white accents on the right would look good at any style of wedding:

Two different ways to do birds on top of cupcakes. First, teeny birds on top of a shredded coconut nest. Or go for patterned chickadees (each one is handmade and totally unique!):

Peacock feathers are surprisingly versatile! This bride's look is bold and dramatic. A peacock feather tucked into a boutonniere is subdued against a neutral suit:

This skinny gold bangle would look great on you or your bridesmaids. And a spray of feathers makes this fascinator quite possibly the best “something blue” I’ve ever seen:

A golden bird with a tiny heart cutout and feathered wings is an unexpected (but gorgeous!) hair accessory:
