Peacock feathers are dramatic, beautiful, and said to be symbolic of our integrity when we show our true colours. The majestic blue-green and gold peacock style is the very latest sophisticated wedding trend for anyone who likes to make a real statement. Here’s how to incorporate it into your big day with high drama or just a subtle hint of flair.
Peacock style fashion
Whether you have a peacock inspired wedding dress made for you or buy one ready made, the design and embroidery are likely to make it the most show-stopping wedding dress your guests will ever see. If the overstated grandeur of the peacock feather is too much for you then choose a gown or accessories in blues and greens with an accent colour of gold for just a hint of peacock style.
For a more classic look, team an ivory gown with bouquets of blue flowers, trailing green foliage and peacock feathers tied with a gold ribbon. Make a statement by dressing bridesmaids in colourful peacock design dresses and have your groom, best man and ushers wear a peacock feather in their button hole in place of the usual flower. For that extra special finishing touch, add trimmed peacock feathers to your lashes.

Although considered bad luck in some cultures, Buddhists associate peacock feathers with openness as shown in the display the male peacock makes when spreading its tail feathers. Though some people believe that real peacock feathers may bring bad luck at a wedding, whatever you choose to believe, peacock style is the ultimate in drama and beauty for any wedding.
