Peacock feathers first became a popular design motif during the Art Nouveau movement, and their rich iridescent hue and delicate silhouette continue to be a popular way to add a touch of exotic glamour to décor. But it can be all too easy to veer into tacky territory when using these multicolored feathers as a point of wedding style inspiration. So keep it classy: just a handful of peacock details should do the trick.

Create a multicolored peacock feather effect by dressing your bridesmaids in varying shades of blue and teal. See bridesmaid dresses in this palette here.
