Here’s another inpiring post from our talented guest blogger, Karen Tran!  If you’ve missed any of her previous posts, check out Part I and Part II of her lovely wedding, and don’t forget her previous posts on romance and floral detailing!

I have been receiving an abundance of requests for peacock weddings lately. Known for its grace and explosive colors, peacock has been a hot trend in today’s wedding themes and colors. The unique color combination in the feathers can be created with gorgeous teal palettes or a multitude of jewel purple shades. Here I have chosen to use deep plum color flowers such as tulips, hydrangeas, lisianthus, roses and schwartzwalder calla lilies with the teal shimmer linens. This combination, reminiscent of the strking colors in peacock feathers, creates a warm yet elegant tone. Of course, these vibrantly-colored feathers were highlighted in the bouquets as well and the guest table centerpieces. You may incorporate them into your napkin treatment or your ceremony programs. They can be more versatile then you think! How about using an organic brown linen with neutral tone flowers and accentuate everything with peacock feathers?

    Where did they get the purple glasses? I am looking to add just a touch of purple at the reception and that would be perfect!
