Peacock feather bouquet and boutonnieres have become increasingly popular over the last few years. I had peacock feathers in my bouquet, due to the association with the Greek goddess Hera, who is said to rule over marriage. Peacocks are sacred to her, and featuring their feathers at a wedding, whether in a bouquet or boutonniere or even table settings or floral arrangements, is said to garner her blessings. Since peacock feathers also have a vintage charm, it is no wonder that many brides and grooms are choosing them for an exotic, unique way to add color to their wedding flowers.
While peacock feathers can be added to most bouquets without dramatically altering their silhouette or creation, many wedding artisans offer bouquets and boutonnieres which already include peacock feathers in their design. Listed below are my top recommendations for peacock feather bouquet and boutonniere ideas, paired together by similar themes:
White Pageant Style Bouquet by Flowers by Design
This stunning, large bouquet features “polar star” award-winning roses in a dramatic cascade along the length of the bouquet. Peacock feathers form the backdrop of the piece, behind a splash of deep green petals. White cord binds the stems of the roses to coordinate with the petals, and a substitute of white Peacock feathers for standard could make this bouquet even bolder if desired. This bouquet is available online at the designer’s site for $145, with a photo available here.
Custom Boutonniere by Beautiful Blooms
This white rose and Peacock feather is a perfect complement to the stunning cascade of white roses in the White Pageant Style Bouquet. Gold ribbon binds the feathers and flowers, adding a vintage and sophisticated charm. View this boutonniere idea here.
Peacock Feathers Bouquet by Limelight Floral Design
A bouquet composed entirely of Peacock feathers is a bold, dramatic, and unique statement. This bouquet weighs less than one pound, making it an ideal choice for brides seeking a manageable, original bouquet. The handle is made of black satin ribbon with black pins, and an ornate costume broach shimmers in silver in the midst of the royal blues, greens, and tans of the feathers. This bouquet is available online at the designer’s site for $85, with a photo available here and additional photos on the listing.
Peacock Boutonniere by Rationale at Etsy

This custom bouquet pictured here from the gallery of Soulflower Floral Designs is a perfect example of the subtle effect Peacock feathers can lend to your bouquet without compromising the effect of the flowers it accompanies.

Custom Bouquet by Attendant
Pictured here, this is a lovely example of a made-at-home bouquet provided by a friend of the Bride. A large, crimson magnolia blossom is paired with a single Peacock feather behind a splash of greenery. A small arrangement, bouquets such as these can be made easily and inexpensively after purchasing a stock of Peacock feathers on sites such as Oriental Trading (24 feathers for $7.99) and obtaining locally grown flowers–possibly from your own garden or orchard!
Peacock Feather Boutonniere by GlamItUp Toppers at Etsy
This simple, sophisticated Peacock feather boutonniere is a charming partner to the subtle grace of the Custom Bouquet pictured above. The tight plum binding is decorated with tiny sets, and the tufts of the feathers have been rolled to create a more precise effect. Available from the Designer for $8 and shown here, it also makes an economical choice which may even be replicated using made-at-home methods for even lower costs.

Another bouquet option made available to the bride considering a Peacock feather-theme arrangement is a silk flower bouquet. Pictured here, this bouquet of silk orchids and calla lilies is paired with numerous Peacock feathers to make a stunning-and eternal-arrangement. This bouquet was offered for $129, but has sold out since being made available. However, it is a perfect example of a stunning silk arrangement, and a concept which could be easily presented to a florist as your idea for a Peacock feather bouquet.
