Inspiration Board – Birds of a feather…

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

So my latest obsession is peacock feathers!  I cannot tell you how excited I am to see them making a huge splash in the wedding industry, from decor to accessories.  Peacock feathers make me nostalgic.  They remind me of when I was a child and I would visit my grandparents.  They had one of those formal living rooms that children were not supposed to play in, however my grandmother would allow me to spend my time there, provided I was super careful.  After all, every single item was either expensive, delicate or an antique.  Most were all of the above.  I was mesmerized by many items in that forbidden room, but no item drew me in more than my grandmother’s vase of peacock feathers.  I could remember the silky soft feeling between my fingers and I remember being amazed at how such intense shimmery blues, greens, and purples could exist naturally on an animal or anywhere in nature really.  Peacock feathers to me always seemed so regal, so fancy, so sophisticated.  Now that I see them being used in weddings they almost seem a little edgy as well.  It takes a bold bride to use the feathers of this beautiful and mystical creature to add drama and flair to traditional bridal adornments such as the bridal bouquet and even hair accessories.  Even if you want to stay on the traditional side, but you like peacock feathers as much as I do, you can still use them in your wedding not as a wearable item but rather on your tables as decor or even attached to your seating cards or wedding favors.

Check out my peacock feather inspiration board to see ways that you can incorporate this beautiful showpiece into your wedding.

Happy Planning!

Ladies, please hear me out.  We (men) love you all very much, which is why we spent ALOT of money on your ring, put up with all of your needs and cares…and wants.  Please realize that for the most part, we don’t give a shit about the flowers.  I mean let’s get real, do you think we would expect you to know how to draft a great fantasy football team? No, so don’t expect us to have any clue when it comes to floral arrangements.  Most men only know about roses, sunflowers, and dandelions.  Are dandelions even a flower?  Other than not really knowing about flowers, the truth is that we really don’t care either.  PLEASE DON’T MAKE US HAVE TO CARE!!!  All we want to do is watch the game.
