Me! Although I’m having trouble finding it for some things so I’m often having to find close colors like teal or “marine blue.” I’m pairing it with pistachio for most things, but we’re also just doing general greens and blues to spread out the palette and make it less obvious when all the peacock/teal/marine is slightly dissimilar.

What inspired the peacock, and the range of blues and greens in general, is a bracelet of my grandmother’s made from the same crystals as this: http://www.bonanza.com/listings/VINTAGE-ANTIQUE-WEISS-RIVOLI-RARE-CLIP-EARRING-SIGNED-AMAZING-BLUE/44354031

I’m thinking of getting the earrings to match and wear them on the day (still deciding).

I found this helpful: http://www.sweetandlovelylife.com/2012/wedding-color-palette-teal-green/

The Perfect Palette, http://www.theperfectpalette.com/, has some interesting ideas, but peacock is not among the colors she’s using, so it’s more for finding other colors that are good with blue.

I think peacock (I’m assuming that’s a green/blue or teal type color) goes great with dark purple, royal blue, or dark green – just like on a peacock!

I had intended teal, but the BMs dresses were ‘peacock’ so that dictated everything else.  I actually was able to get most stuff to match pretty good.  We went with it, silver black and white.  For flowers, pink.
