I made a Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet based on my wedding colors, which are peacock feather inspired jewel tones. So now comes the task of working in at least one peacock feather. I had always envisioned sticking them thrpughout the bouquet, but qhen I did that it looked like a little alien was living in there and poked his eyes out. Someone suggested having some cascading down over the hand. I like this look better. I’d love some opinions and more suggestions. Thanks!

I think it is lovely!!! Have you thought about having the feathers line the underside of the bouquet? That could be fun to play with and see how it looks…

@TaraRad: I like the idea of feathers lining the underside of the bouquet.

That really came out good! I love the use of peacock feathers! So fun and unexpected!! I like it as is, but i like the suggestion of lining the bouquet with the feathers. Play with it 😉

Thanks all! I have thought about putting them underneath, sort of how lace or leaves are typically used to frame the base of the bouquet. I have played with it a little, but the look I posted was my fave. I also want the feathers to add to the bouquet as opposed to being the bouquet, so I was afraid I was losing that by adding so many feathers. I’m actually thinking what I posted may look even better with 2 instead of 3. This probably sounds weird, but I want the bouquet to look like it was naturally so colorful that it sprouted peacock feathers. I employed the same method with my brooch bouquet. I got sparkly hydrangeas and I wanted it to look like the brooches grew in there. Crazy bride ideas, I suppose.
