I’m thinking of adding peacock feathers into my bouquet (with light colored flowers; I didn’t think the coloring would work, but when my Fiance and I experimented it looked great!). Has anyone used peacock feathers with your flowers? If so, how did it turn out and what types of flowers would you suggest?
Our colors are a light green, brown, and creme.

high five for the peacock feathers! I am planning to use them in my bouquets and centerpieces as well. Our colors are teal and burnt orange, with brown and cream accents. Just one or two feathers in each bouquet, trimmed down to the same height as the rest of the flowers so they just sort of peek out, not stick out dramatically. In the centerpieces we’re doing a mix of flowers, berries, branchy willow and the feathers… need to experiement with that a bit more.
For bouquets I’m using orange and cream roses and hypericum berries with lemon leaves as filler. For boutonnieres I’m going to use a feather, just the eye, and a sprig of berries.
I think the feathers can work with any sort of flower as long as the shape of the bouquet is not very tight and spherical.
