    I think these feather bouts are subtle enough that they can stand on their own without incorporating feathers into the wedding elsewhere. I’m glad that your Fiance found a style that he could be enthusiastic about! I wish I could get my Fiance to feel the same sometimes, haha.

    Bah – I voted for the wrong thing because I read the question wrong. I DEFINITELY think these can stand alone. I absolutely adore feathers. If they were the male peacock (the green/blue) they may need to tie in elsewhere, but these female feathers with the bit of purple are so beautiful and subtle I think it will look fantastic.

    If you really want to tie it in, could you maybe add some to your bouquet? Or even affix it to a brooch around the ribbon/fabric part? Regardless, I think he made a great choice!

    I don’t think you need to use feathers elsewhere, but I would incorporate your wedding colors into the boutonnieres- the wrap perhaps?

    So pretty.  This is going to sound random, but I think I’d either incorporate feathers into the other floral pieces or else find calla lilies the same shade as the inner colors on the feathers (for your example, that deep purple) — there’s something to me about the shape of the callas that would echo the feathers in a nice subtle way.

    I think they can stand alone as well, but if you feel like you want to work them in, perhaps you can put a few on the BM’s bouquet handles. Using them in more places would just make them a part of the theme as a whole, which if you don’t really love feather isn’t particularly helpful
