Peacocks are fascinatingly beautiful birds, so it’s no wonder that some brides take their color inspiration from that amazing plumage. But you could go that extra mile and make peacocks your wedding theme, especially if you have no problems using feathers as decor (which some folks do). To me, the most obvious place to use peacock feathers is in the bridal bouquet and bridesmaids’ bouquets, but floral arrangements aren’t the only place they look stunning.
Peacock feathers also look lovely in boutonnieres, where their size means they play a starring role, and in reception table centerpieces. There are plenty of peacock wedding cake designs to be found via GIS, though a talented cake designer would be able to invent one just for you. Peacock feathers could be woven into the flower garlands decorating the ceremony space, or used in other ways to enhance an otherwise blah space, or oR OR…
Or you could, you know, just wear an awesome peacock wedding dress inspired by the bird itself! I rabidly adore this dress! Yes, I am foaming at the mouth!
…moving on, how about peacock wedding invitations like these from Izzy & the Bean Design, Peacock Invitations, and Paper Olive? There are so many ways a bride and groom might incorporate a peacock wedding theme into their invites, from sending invitations embellished with real feathers to choosing wedding stationery with decorated with stylized peacocks (that don’t even have to be peacock-colored).
Don’t let the groom and his guys out of the fun — these peacock feather ties are pretty subtle, especially if you’re not looking for the pattern, but a little treat to those who notice it.
Far more overt and also deliciously stunning, this peacock feather headpiece from Sewperlative would jazz up even the most subdued wedding day attire. If the bride would rather wear white, Sewperlative can accommodate, in which case perhaps the bridesmaids could rock the bright plumage.
The peacock bouquet and other peacock feather enhanced wedding flowers below were created by Lana of Fairbanks Florist in Orlando, FL. I love how the feathers are taking the lead in the bride’s bouquet instead of playing second fiddle to the flowers. It’s almost like a peacock feather fan that happened to run smack into a small floral arrangement. Pretty, no?
But wait, there’s more! Busy Button sells pretty custom painted peacock ring bearer pillows in the bride and groom’s wedding color palette. Again, it’s not an overt use of the peacock’s plumes, but it is definitely in keeping with the peacock wedding theme.
And finally, here’s a little reception table inspiration, compliments of the Indian Blue (and perhaps sometimes the Green peafowl, where the males and females both sport backside brilliance, though these are endangered).
