Peacock feather bouquet #Wedding Porn#bouquet alternatives#feathers#flip-flops#outdoor#peacock feathers#red hair Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted May 20 2008) Ariel arielmstallings For those of you seeking out alternatives to the traditional floral bouquet, check out Rachel's fabulous peacock feather bouquet. The peacock theme continued on the wedding cake, too. It's worth checking out all the photos from this lovely wedding … this one is my favorite, although I'm also quite fond of this one of the wedding party and the adorable flower girls.

She looks so beautiful and FREE! Lovely photos 🙂 Reply Ghee whiz, I would have never thought of that. And it is a whole lot cheaper than the traditional bouquet of flowers. Reply I had a peacock feather bouquet as well, and it was soo much cheaper than flowers… and I just found out an interesting fact! The peacock was a symbol of Hera, the greek goddess married to Zeus, who herself represented Marriage. Wish I knew that before my wedding, as the peacock feathers were a large part of the decor. Reply cute, cute, cute! i love alternatives to the norm! ive also seen paper flowers and REALLY cool wooden flowers that are shaved so thin and painted to intricatley that they look like something out of a fairy tale! fun stuff! Reply Those pics are amazing – what a lovely bride! I adore the idea of peacock feathers instead of a more "traditional" bouquet. Nicely done! Reply rockin' photo, maggie! I had a boudoir client who is using peacock feathers as a theme for her upcoming wedding… let's just say peacock + cheetah print lingerie = rawr. Reply Great pictures! I love the look of people gathering in the wooden area like that makes it look so natural. I love the fact the girls all wore flip flops and look very comfortable wearing what they picked to wear. Cake looks very cool with the feathers! Congrats to the couple! Reply Does anyone know where her bouquet is from? I have been looking all over for peacock feather bouquets like that one! Reply her sister made the bouquet…a lot of the things for this wedding were homemade…2 ladies from our church made the cakes & lots of families contributed food & things. her cousin's band played the reception along with my fiance' & another of our friends. also, my future sister-in-law (the bridesmaid with red hair) made her skirt and the other gray skirt. this wedding was very much DIY. =) Reply oh! and thanks for all the lovely compliments. =)) Reply HeY I was wondering where you found huge peacock feathers like the one in your bouquet. I am trying to do one similar and can't find big enough feathers! could you let me know! McCall Reply I am also doing the peacock feather idea in my bouquets and on the cake, but did you have any problems with the ones on the cake since I know most are treated with chemicals to kill the bird mites and such. Are regular feathers safe for use on cakes? I do not want my guests to get sick! Please let me know what you used and how it turned out. Reply Love this flower-girl's colorful dress. Does anyone have any ideas where I can get a flower girl dress with the peacock inspired colors. Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
