Cool theme πŸ™‚ The brown didn’t really do it for me– when I think of a peacock I think of the gorgeous greens and blues. Have you thought about bridesmaid bouquets? That could be a great place to incorporate a peacock feather. You might want to check out “My Fair Wedding” with David Tutera– there is an episode on Netflix (I believe I watched it last month!) that is all peacocks. I know he’s totally over the top, but you might be able to snag a few fun ideas from him about incorporating the theme without being too literal. Good luck!!

Ooh sorry I didn’t see this thread when it started a month ago! I’m having the same issues. Trying to keep it classy. I’m sticking some feathers in with florals of colors that I’m trying to pull from the feathers. I’m not afraid of the brown and gold, just keeping that to a minimum. I’m really playing up the jewel toned purple. My sister and Maid/Matron of Honor makes fun of me because I keep saying I want “dank” colors and she’s not really sure what I mean by that. Here’s my inspiration photo.

I’m doing a peacock wedding (but focusing on dark teal/blue/purple), but you could easily throw in green with a lot of my stuff. I’m also avoiding over-use of feathers to keep it classy. I’ll post a little bit of the things we’ve done, but I’ll if you’d like, I’ll be sure to PM you when we do recaps in a few weeks/month so you can check out what you like or could use from our wedding. 

My bouquet

Our invites (or a peek at them, anyway)

Groom’s bout

Groomsmen bouts

Glitter soles!

Place cards (the generic versions, didn’t want to post real guest names online)

I was going to have teal, silver and black colors but you have given me some great new ideas.

@hellsbells2949: For sure! Glad to help πŸ™‚ And no worries, I’m done taking ideas, my to-do list is already way too long for the 6 days we have left! Haha. I’ll make note to PM you the links to our recaps when we post. I’ll probably do a few teasers soon after and then the fuller pro recaps when we get those back. Hope you can find some ideas you like from there.

@nycsa: That color combo sounds gorgeous! There are so many pretty, rich jewel tones in the peacock scheme that it’s hard to hold back.

@nycsa: It’s such a nice, deep base color, and not ‘girly’ so it tied well into both the guys’ and gals’ stuff. Helped the look come together really well, for us, at least.

@hellsbells2949: For sure! I’ll just copy and paste the URL right into the message I send you. (You can check your messages in the upper right corner, by your sign in name.) Thanks, I need the luck, but I know I’ll enjoy πŸ™‚
