The peacock is one of nature’s most magnificent creatures. Decked in hues of metallic golds, blues, plums, and beiges with hints of vibrant yellows and deep greens, the birds entrance all who witness the dramatic display of fully exposed and spread tails. Even the head of the peacock is adorned in its own shimmering veil.
It’s no wonder the bird nature adorned so ornately is becoming a hit with brides wanting to drench their special day in the iridescent splendor of the peacock’s natural beauty.
Weddings themed in peacock finery have a multitude of choices for color schemes. The rich feathers lend themselves to every decoration and can even be incorporated into the bridal gown. From flowers to the vows, there is nothing the peacock cannot make shine just a little brighter.
Flower arrangements for weddings using this theme can include the feathers of peacocks within their arrangement. Boutonnières lend themselves to simple, yet elegant, designs with the feather acting as a backdrop for a small bud or dramatic leaf. Corsages incorporate the peacock feather in much the same way, but the flowers mixed with them can be a little bolder and more numerous than the boutonnieres. Bridal bouquets look spectacular when peacock feathers adorn them. The varying placements and lengths of the feathers used can enhance the design and cause a pleasant response from the guests.
Invitations using the bold, bright colors of the peacock or the inclusion of a feather, whether drawn artistically or real, lend a sense of excitement to the traditional cards. The invitations can be coordinated with menus, thank you cards, and more with little difficulty.
Bridal gowns made with a peacock theme shimmer and shine with sparkling beauty with the brides every move. The alluring gem tones definitely draw the eyes of the guests and wedding party to the bride on her special day.
Cakes and refreshments are not lacking when designed with the peacock theme, either. Creations using the peacock are absolutely breathtaking and display the pride the couple has in their union in a unique and personal way.
