While the traditional white or cream weddings will never go out of style, splashes of exotic color are becoming more familiar. Wedding planners now have a lot more creative freedom to develop interesting themes to suit the changing times.
If you are thinking along the lines of an exotic and vibrant wedding, then maybe a peacock wedding theme is just the thing for you. If done the right way, it can look classy and subtle. The trick is not to go overboard with the colors. Here are some of the terrific things who can do with a peacock wedding theme.
Ideas For A Peacock Wedding Theme
1. Save-The-Date Cards
Regular save-the-date or invitations cards can look quite nondescript. The trick is to come out with something new and exciting. Any card designer can work out a brilliant scheme of colors or if you have the right idea, you can do it yourself.
Incorporate peacock green, teal, midnight and cobalt blue, purple and a dash of gold to the invitation cards. Cream colored cards with a peacock feather, wrapped in pink and purple ribbons are attractive and set the mood among your guests for the big day.
2. Bridesmaid And Flower Girl Dresses
Dressing up for a wedding was never this fun! Sheer teal gowns or green with faint gold accents, coupled with peacock feather or crystal embellished headpieces to complete the style, are perfect for the bridesmaids. If you find the headpieces too bizarre and loud, then go in for purple or pink corsages. Choose apple green or pale lavender net, satin or lace dresses for the flower girls, along with pretty pink or purple flower headbands.
3. Bridal Gown
This is the tricky part. Dressing in a peacock inspired gown on your wedding day is risky business, mostly because you don’t want to look like you’re dressed for an masquerade ball. While there are many vibrantly colored couture wedding gowns that fit the bill, you run the risk of overdoing the theme.Instead, I would recommend going with a white or cream gown embellished with colored Swarovski crystals, along with a brightly colored bouquet. This would make the bridal gown stand out in the sea of colorfully dressed bridesmaids and flower girls.
4. Peacock Inspired Decorations
Work the theme into the decorations as subtly as possible. A flash of purple, lavender, and cobalt blue in the general scheme of cream or white hues will have a more delicate effect than decorating entirely in striking shades. Vases with purple or fuchsia colored flowers, gold detailing on napkins or dinnerware, a single peacock feather centerpiece, purple ribbons are some ideas you can try.
5. Wedding Favors
Everyone loves pretty things and what better way to give your guests something to remember your wedding by than with a peacock wedding party favor.A favor bag decorated with a single peacock feather, blue and green ribbons or one which is printed all over in creative peacock inspired prints would be perfect for the occasion. Peacock wedding origami favor boxes, marble glass magnets, mint tins and cookies are some of the fun things you can gift your guests.
