I’m assuming the peacock feather would be in a little headband of some sort and not actually feathers coming out of her diaper!? It sounds like she wants to dress the baby up in a nice outfit…and just so happened to think the addition of a peacock feather would be cute. Can you ask her to send you a picture of the outfit beforehand? Text her and say, “It sounds so cute but I can’t picture it. Can you send me a photo of the outfit?”

You aren’t telling other guests what colors they should/could wear, right? So what is wrong with the baby not matching the bridal party?

I think considering it’s the color of the bridal party. It would annoy me. Since she asked she has nothing to get upset at if you decline. I do think asking for a picture first beforing saying now would be nice.

@BeetleGrl215:  I’m assuming the baby will be seated with your Future Brother-In-Law, right? Your Future Sister-In-Law is a bridesmaid so she will be walking down the aisle and by that point, baby will be surrounded by all the other guests and their sole focus and attention will be on those walking down the aisle. I wouldn’t worry about the outfit being distracting. This is one I would let go 🙂

@BeetleGrl215:  I would just ask her what she means exactly…or maybe say you thought the two of you could pick out a pretty dress for her together (that way you have some say 😉 ).

But honestly I don’t think this is something you can absolutely say no to. What if Aunt F shows up in fuschia? Or Uncle M has a bright orange dress shirt? You can’t control what guests wear and in the end I don’t think you will even notice because you’ll be busy marrying your best friend!
