My theme is peacocks. They are my favorite animal and i find them to be very majestic. Since my wedding is in Christmas time (December 16, 2011) I decided to incorporate peacocks AND Christmas into my theme. I am so excited to see the end result.
My bouquet is going to have pine cones, thistle, peacock feathers, and even small ornaments in it. The colors will be teal, aqua, and a lime green. I am incorporating a gold into my theme to match the gold around the eye of the peacock feather.
This is a little inspiration for my color scheme, however I am adding gold rather than silver. Also, since its a Winter/Evening wedding, i am going to go a little less bright in the aqua.
I know a lot of people who go with a peacock theme add purple or a cobalt blue, but with my bridesmaids dresses and my vision, this is what i decided to go with.
My bridesmaids dresses are below. The color they will be in is teal. It’s almost the exact color of the teal ornaments in the above picture. i am going with a dress like this because it looks good on all body types and I wanted a long dress in case it’s cold out.
Here is a really good collage of things in my color scheme. Do you like?

very pretty! I also had a peacock theme and what I thought was so great about it was the flexibility. You can use the colors anywhere without getting too “theme”-y and you can always add in basically any jewel-tone if needed. My colors were originally blue/teal/gold but I hated the napkins my venue offered in those colors so I picked purple instead and it went great. Basically anything goes!

I had a peacock theme too. Teal and ivory. I think your idea is GREAT and will look awesome. Plus the green dresses with the feathers ROCKS!!!

I am having a hard time with my hair though…chosing between a traditional veil or a birdcage with a peacock feather in it.

@CorgiTales: I am actually thinking of adding a PINCH of purple into the centerpieces just to give it a little pizazz. Not every centerpiece but maybe a few.
