so bee’s last night i had a dream about my wedding (which is two yrs away) and i had a emerald green,purple and Navy theme. It was beautiful. when i woke up i didnt really think anything about it until i went to get pizza for dinner and there is a flower shop next to the pizza place and there was an arangement in those colors. I stopped and stared at it for a few minutes and decided that those colors are perfect. But do those colors work for a jan. wedding? i thought that they did. When i got home i tried looking up wedding with these colors and what i found was alot of Peacock themed weddings, which i think is really pretty but th ones that i saw were like peacock explosion. How can i incorperate the feather, without it being the entire theme…I like the idea of th fathers in the Bridesmaid or Best Man hair, but if that is the only place i add it will it look out of place?
If any of you have any other seggestions i would greatly appreciate them. It would also be wonderful if you happen to run across any weddings with these colors, to share the pics that you find…at this point it is all just an idea very far from my original colors (charcoal gray and teal).
(i posted this on the theme board too but wasnt getting any replys :()

Sounds very pretty!!! You could have small feather accents like on the centerpieces but maybe not all of them.

You’re two years out; it’s not like your color scheme is set in stone at this point. And the new colors are not really a departure from your original colors; they are all frequently used together, especially with peacock accents. I am sure it will be fine. Google “peacock wedding inspiration,” and you’ll be entertained for a while.
And just by way of an FYI, we just had a sticky thread (one that stayed at the top of the board, put their by a moderator) about trying to keep posts in their proper categories to keep it easy to search. If your post isn’t getting as many replies as you’d like, you should just bump it rather than start an entirely new thread, especially in the wrong board.
And I see you’re pretty new, so a sticky thread is one that a moderator put at the top of the board to stay there so people see it without it dropping off the board for lack of replies. And bumping a thread is when you reply to your own post, even if it is just an empty post that say “bump” to move it to the top of the list. Hope this helps in the future! 🙂

We are having a rustic themed wedding and using the peacock feathers as a splash of drama. All the wood, burlap, twine, etc can be boring so we’re throwing a peacock feather here and there and it pops againse the neutrals. Maybe you can use a neutral background and use your colors as accents? I think that would fit January quite well. Like Amaryllis said, you’re two years out and nothing is set in stone. The good news is you have lots of time to plan like a madwoman and get exactly what you want.
