          One of the sites I posted earlier said something about their meaning, but it was all good. I can't recall exactly what... I will check around if i have time.

            VOLUME XIII - 9
            Q: What is the meaning of peacock feathers?

            A: The peacock feathers are considered by the poets and mystics as a symbol (sign) of beauty, and a sign of vanity. And they are included in all the kingly grandeurs. And the peacock is the bird upon which rode the goddess of music and literature, Saraswati. Also the peacock feathers are used at the tombs of the Sufis, by the guardians of the tomb. Also by the healers, what by the pass of the peacock feathers, which is the pass of harmony and beauty, the bad influences may be taken away. Also in India they use peacock feathers in the necklace of a child, and that is a little psychological trick. A child who is susceptible to evil eye is saved from its severe influence, because it is natural that the first glance of a person, instead of falling upon the child, will fall upon the peacock feathers, because it attracts the curiosity of everyone. In that way the first severe glance is, so to speak, shielded by the peacock feathers. And the same thing is done by the lion's nails which are put in the necklace of a little child.

            The Feathers Site - everything about feather magic
            Peacock Feathers were thought to be very unlucky, because they resemble an eye. The eye shape represented the evil eye which people were afraid of. Today the beauty and natural strength of the peacock feathers are again recognized. They are specially valued for their multicolored eyes.

            Peacock
            In Asia, the feathers of the peacock are considered auspicious and protective. However in the European tradition, it used to be considered very bad luck to keep them in the home. (and it goes on)

                I am also thinking about using peacock feathers in my wedding. I love all the colors in the feathers. How are you incorporating them in your wedding? Are you using them in your bouquet?

                  I'm incorping peacock feathers into my wedding. Not over load, but I def love them and want the colors.

                  So is it b/c I'm using peacock feathers in my flowers that I'm seeing them everywhere now, or were they always around like this? (Kinda like when you get a new car, you see the car EVERYWHERE after that, but of course they were always there, u just didnt notice) I've def seen cock feather's (BLAHAHAHHAH) around before but I feel like they're out there more these days. I went to the mall and I swear, peacock shirts, plates, ear rings, etc are everywhere. I'm kinda hoping I'm wrong too about them just becoming popular, b/c I don't want my wedding to be "trendy", kwim??

                    Hmmm, I haven't seen them around any more than usual if that helps!?!? I vote for you probably just notice them way more now that it is a theme. PS: Great idea! Love the colours of peacock feathers.
