If you thought most bridesmaids' dresses were hideous, imagine having to wear one made of turkey feathers. For the 1948 wedding party of one Barbara Orr Ehrhart, Oregonian and turkey enthusiast extraordinaire, this unlikely scenario was, in fact, all-too-real. As the Feb. 9, 1948, issue of LIFE made plain, in an engaging article titled "LIFE Goes to a Turkey Feather Wedding," turkey was the theme of the evening at Ehrhart's nuptials — not merely on the menu, but on the attendants and on the happy bride herself.
