    As a theme, I don’t think you should do both. I feel like it would be hard to not go over the top and still use both enough to consider them themes.

    You don’t have to completely remove one or the other though. If you do damask and then use purple and teal and maybe use a few feathers in your bouquet or bouts that would look cool.

    Both of those are very trendy so you have to be careful about looking too kitschy fad.

    Personally I would not use both. I would go with damask despite my love of peacock.

    I think a tone on tone damask with the peacock theme would be very beautiful and very art nouveau

    Here are some pictures . . .

    I don’t get why everyone is fanasinatd by there wedding having a theme….. I don’t like the weddings that have too much going on, if you dont pull it off right it looks tacky. don’t go over board on either a nice blend could be great! stuble hints of each would work well.

    This is too funny I am doing almost the same theme…without a damask theme. I was inspired to do a a purple/teal theme with accents of peacock from this photo. I am having my wedding July next year and I think these colours are very fresh and fun looking! I think including damask it may get too busy but if its subtle you could make it work.

    I would love to see more photos with these colours or this theme as well if anyone has some!

    My wedding is also June of next year and I am doing this exact thing! Mine is black and white but I’m adding in the peacock… I will have a damask runner on the tables and the card box, flower girl basket, ring bearer pillow, and sign in book are all in damask. I’m being very subtle with the peacock so that it doesn’t clash (I just needed some color). My shoes are Johnathan Kayne royal blue heels with a peacock feather, bridesmaids will be in black satin dresses with same shoes, my pew markers are flower balls-making them myself in peacock colors and the colors are elegant and do not clash with the damask (Pinterest). I may add peacock feathers to the centerpieces but I don’t thi k it will work.. This is a very hard combo!

    Oops, one more thing. Part of my inspiration for the Peacock part was that I wanted color in my wedding, not just black and white, but I’ve always wanted royal blue or dark (eggplant) purple.. Well low and behold I was in a wedding this year that was royal blue and 2 of my college roommates are getting married next year, I’m in both weddings, and BOTH of their colors are purple…
