I think it’ll be great to use the peacock colors and just add a bit of color here and there for tradition, but keep the peacock blue as the main color. I can be do very tastefully if it’s simple. The images @julies1949 just posted are perfect.

I think as long as you keep the bright peacock colors and get rid of the more subdued ones you will be fine. The turquoise and green will complement the Mexican theme wonderfully. It’s only when you start adding in the greys, browns and blacks of the peacock feather that you might run into trouble. So maybe don’t use actual feathers, and make sure your peacock feather decor/paper products are all drawn brightly (sort of like a watercolor or a comic-book drawing) rather than more realistically.

I had a peacock themed wedding and searched for items in my colors. You can get colored peacock feathers. Check out http://www.prettypeacockfeathers.com

I’ve see a lot of peacock-type colors used in Mexican Folk art and architecture.  Frida Kahlo’s house is a famous example.  My mom brought a bunch of stuff back from Oaxaca that was peacock blue decorated with Cala Lilies.  I’ve even heard that intense deep blue referred to as “Mexican Blue”.  You could totally still stick to the Mexican theme without changing colors.

 

A great option would be papel picado.  You can have it in any color, and it looks beautiful hanging from the ceiling.  

 

Oh, and Charro suits are so hot!

Cala lilies!  The colors in cala lilies would look gorgeous next to that blue, and would be very much Mexican themed.

I was thinking white, since that’s the traditional color, and will add some brightness, but play with it and see what you like best. Smile
