Peacock theme ideas

I’ve been coming across some fantastic peacock themed wedding ideas lately so I thought they deserved their own post. The thing with such a colourful theme, it’s probably wise to go easy on the feathers and the teal or it could quite easily go into overkill.

Everything Steampunk

Parasol

 

I’ve been in a bit of a steampunk mode since becoming thoroughly absorbed by Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate novels, so I’ve been hunting the internets for fabulous steampunky wedding themes.

I came across this series of book covers by Nekro for a series of steampunk novels by Liesel Schwarz that I thought were wonderfully striking and I could just imagine them printed up and being used for funky decor.

Now, without further ado, here are various items that caught my eye….
