{Peacock Feathered Fairytale}: A Palette of Blues and Greens.

January 20, 2010

{Navy Blue, Blue, Lime Green, and Chartreuse}

This bright and cheery palette was inspired none other than the gorgeous colors you find in peacock feathers. But unlike so many feather themed weddings we're seeing nowadays I decided to keep this palette pretty much feather-free with the exception of the small feathers to be worn the bridesmaids hair. You see, I think sometimes it's easy for a bride to latch on to one theme and to go crazy with it. I'm sure you've seen the overly done themes I'm talking about! So many times you see brides going crazy with peacock feathers! They want them on their cakes, in their bouquets, in their centerpieces, tucked in a napkin! {continued...}

After a while it's like okay enough with it! Sometimes too much is just, well too much. So this board was all about taking inspiration from an idea like a feather and using it to bring your wedding to life without overdoing it. Less really is more ladies! Wouldn't you agree? Because although I definitely think that there is something to be said about carrying a theme throughout your wedding, you don't want it to get to point where the theme is more the focus than the wedding itself! Just my two cents!

This is also a great palette to pull out bright turquiose blue as a predominent color. That's what I'm trying to convince one of my brides to do! She has a problematic reception venue color that we need to work with. This would totally solve her problem! Thanks!

When I first saw these colors, I had no idea how they were going to work together. Of course, you proved that they would! Gorgeous!

Would you have any suggestions for a wintery blue? I've got a dinner coming up in a few weeks and I'm thinking about the place setting.

I love your blog and have been constantly looking through it for inspiration. However, I can't seem to quite find what I'm looking for. I want to have a vintage/country/rustic type wedding using navy blue,ivory, and maybe gold or copper. The only thing I'm worried about is the place we are having the wedding has dark brown wood accents everywhere, which I'm having a hard time incorporating into the vintage/rustic theme. Any chance you could help me out with this? Thanks!!
