Great Ideas and Suggestions!
The peacock, with its resplendent feathers, has long represented wealth and aristocracy. For some cultures it also symbolizes knowledge, kindness, patience and good fortune. Between its many meanings and beautiful display of colors, it is no wonderf that a peacock wedding theme is quickly gaining popularity.
Set the Scene with your invitations: Invitations can feature any of the brilliant jewel tones that peacocks are so famous for: bright greens, teal or royal blue, purple and gold. They can then be adorned with a feathers, whether real or simply an image. Peacock feathers can be found at craft stores as well as in bulk online.
Peacock Bridal Accessories: Bridal bouquets can consist of only feathers or they can be a combination of feathers and beautiful, brightly colored flowers. Take a feather to your florist and ask them what they would recommend based on your desires and color themes. Wrapping you and your bridesmaids bouquets in sumptuous satin ribbons will also looked beautiful.
There are also peacock feather hair fascinators that can be incorporated in your hair and make-up plans for your wedding day, as well as jewelry (earrings, bracelets, etc.)
Decorating the Church or wedding hall: We love large, luxurious satin bows in a jewel tone attached to every pew. For added elegance, you could attach a single peacock feather, or several, to each bow. Flower arrangements can also include feathers. If you are using a wedding program, tie it into the wedding colors. Feathers tied with satin ribbons hanging from the church or hall doors is also a lovely touch.
The Wedding Reception: We recommend having a floral arrangement that includes peacock feathers on the place card table which is usually located just before the entrance to the reception room. There are also several online options for peacock place cards including those with an actual feather on it or just an image.
Peacock guest books and pen sets can also be found online. You can even have them custom created in your colors. To really make your tables shine, consider a satin table runner in one of the colors that you have incorporated into your wedding decor. And an actual tablecloth made of real feathers to display your wedding cake will be stunning; there are several online purveyors of these.
Peacock candles, whether in bright peacock colors or actually shape like the bird, also look lovely at a reception.
The Wedding Cake: Our favorite way to find inspirations for wedding cakes it to go to Google.com/Images and input “peacock wedding cake” or “peacock feather weather cake”. You will be amazed and the large number and fabulous creation to be found there. Simply print out the ones you like and take them to your bakery to see if they can replicate it. A wonderful addition or alternative to a traditional wedding cake is to serve cupcakes. Roll white frosted cupcakes in brilliant, shimmering decorative sugars in the colors you are emphasizing in your wedding. You can also wrap each baked cupcake in a peacock cupcake wrapper.
Peacock Wedding Favors: There are many exceptional favors to choose from including personalized, glass peacock magnets which serve as lovely mementos for your special day. There are many edible favors that encompass a peacock theme including decorated peacock shaped sugar cookies and chocolate dipped oreos or graham crackers that include an edible peacock image and text on them. Even chocolate peacock place cards (these do dual duty as place cards and favor). You can also purchase beautiful peacock favor boxes and fill with your own sweet treats.
