Ultimately it’s your choice to what theme you want. And you have to love the theme/colours for your wedding. Trust your gut. I’ve seen some beautiful jewel toned weddings. It’s all a matter of personal taste 🙂

I really like your ideas. I would keep my bridesmaids’ dresses simple to accentuate the pretty flowers; maybe go with a navy dress and purple peacock bouquets w/ feathers. Check out J. Crew for some really simple, dark blue designs.

I would perhaps stick with the navy and purple to keep the colors from getting too “random.” Good luck!!

Those table numbers are freaking cute!

I think with this you just have to be careful that you don’t go overboard with the peacock feathers. My inspiration board is party inspired by peacock colors, and I’m only going to have the feathers in maybe my hairpiece and the bouquets. Otherwise everything is only inspired in the color.

I don’t think you need to try and find ways to make it more vintage, your photographer can take care of that! I mean I love mismatched teacups and all that but I just can’t fit that into the wedding, so I’m not going to (try not to) worry about it actually looking vintage. Here’s my board (that I was trying without the peacock feathers at all)

Love those invites too! And I’m going to disagree with brideatbeach (no offense :D)

and say you can incorporate whatever colors you want! There’s no rule that says you can only use two colors, if they are in the same palette you can use touches of whatever you want! All of those colors go together, its just a matter of not overwhelming everything with equal amounts of them. Little touches of gold and black won’t overwhelm, and all blues and purples will go together!

Well you want to use turquoise right? On the table linens or somewhere else? Purple and black totally works, maybe you could put a little more turquoise in? BM sashes or on the table linens, or the wraps on their bouquets? Again don’t worry about only having hints of blue, thats fine! Nothing in my wedding will be as blue as my shoes and I like it that way 😀

Is there a reason you’re having the bridesmaids wear black? Just to be easy for the girls? I think with all of the lovely purples and navys out there you’d be better off picking something in that realm for them. Just my opinion, but I don’t think navy blue and black go together, but purple and navy are very pretty.

I like it all and I feel like eventually everyones weddings will look dated, I’m sure our Moms thought theirs were beautiful but most of us disagree 20+ years later. Go for it!

I love purple weddings (mine was one!!) and jewel tones are gorgeous!

Here is a picture of our purple (lavender) napkins and chair bows and the deeper purple centerpieces and table numbers.
