In honor of tomorrow's Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, here is an interesting photo gallery from LIFE magazine featuring a designer in 1947 who created wedding dresses and accessories out of - wait for it - turkey feathers.

Quote:
In 1947, designer Barbara Orr Ehrhart demonstrated her love of turkey not just by having it for dinner at her Oregon wedding, but also by making wedding dresses out of turkey feathers for herself and her bridesmaids. LIFE captured the oddball ceremony, feathers and all, in these photographs.

For several months, Ehrhart collected 34,000 white plumes from 300 turkeys. The bridal gown was made of 500 yards of white plume feathers from a truckload of White Holland turkeys. The bridesmaids' dresses came in feathers dyed yellow, pale green, and black. One gown was valued at $18,000 -- the equivalent of nearly $175,000 in today's dollars.
