Planning A Peacock Themed Wedding

Start with a Peacock Themed Save the Date: It is always thoughtful to send out Save The Dates once you have secured the date and location of your wedding. You can also use your cards to introduce your peacock wedding theme by using the brilliant colors found in nature on your cards and/or including a peacock feather design on them. Save the Dates usually take the form of 1) postcards or magnets that are mailed via the post office, or 2) e-card using one of the many free services online (to find these services, go to your favorite search tool and type in free online save the dates or free save the date e-cards).

Next are your invitations: Invitations are a great way to creatively express your wedding information to your guests. Framing your invitation in one or more of the jewel tones found on a peacock as well as including an elegant image of peacock or peacock feather will further communicate the peacock theme. Already designed peacock invitations can readily be found online or at stationery stores.

Decor: My favorite way to decorate is through the use of bold, dramatic color (royal blue, lime, emerald and olive greens, gold, brown and plum) and then use peacock feathers as accents. And elegant way to introduce color is through the use of wedding chair sashes and bows as well as using peacock colored table runners. If you are using floral centerpieces, make sure to include peacock feathers in them. You can also use peacock themed place cards and table numbers to add to the dcor. Set out pillar candles in the many colors listed above throughout the room to further create ambiance.

Dessert: Thinking of having a peacock decorated wedding cake? Simply go to www.google.com/images and type in peacock wedding cake and youll finds thousands of photos for inspiration. If cupcakes are part of your dessert buffet, consider wrapping them in peacock cupcake wrappers.

Party Favors: It is always thoughtful and generous to send your guests home with a little thank you gift something to let them know that you appreciated that they celebrated with you. Peacock Wedding Favors are readily available including, peacock shaped cookies, peacock favor boxes, peacock feather wine stoppers, and peacock feather candles.
