Bootstrap has a fair amount of form customisation and it's form control validation classes are amazing, you can even use them with the glyphicons bundled with Bootstrap to display a visual indicator inside the form control itself. Did you know however, that you can also use any Font Awesome icon in the place of these glyphs? I've been doing just that recently and it looks great!

Here's a small example from a project of mine...

...and the code is something like this:
 HTML
<div class="form-group has-feedback">
<input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Enter location or place">
<span class="fa fa-map-marker form-control-feedback" aria-hidden="true"></span>
</div>


This is almost letter-to-letter copy/paste of Bootstrap examples of form feedback with optional icons, the major difference is that all the 'glyphicon' classes are replaced by 'fa' classes for Font Awesome icons.



Enjoy!
