Important Tips For Planning A Peacock Themed Wedding

Getting married is one of the most special times that one can experience. You want the entire event to be something that is very special. Not only that, you want this special occasion to be remembered for many years to come. One of the most popular things to consider is theme, and peacocks are popular. Here are some helpful tips for planning a peacock themed wedding.


Invitations are an excellent way to start the planning process. This gives you an outline of what you want to happen. It also gives you the chance to express your theme. Many invitations will have a lovely feather of your favorite bird on the front. Perhaps you will want something with peacocks on the inside of the invitation. Choose your invitations carefully, as they will set the theme for the entire event.

The Internet is an excellent place to search for the perfect invitations. There is a wide selection of invitation services to choose from. Also, you may get the best prices this way, as you may not have to pay sales tax. When you have specific budget, every little thing counts, and if you can save money on invitations, you can use it somewhere else.

Choosing Colors

Colors are a not difficult to come up with for this kind of theme. Go with teal, bronze, gold, and especially plum purple. Make certain that the bridesmaids reflect one of your main colors, and this also goes for the groom. The bridal gown should also be in a main color. However, white will work, as it is neutral.

Deep Purple

If you look in the center of feathers from peacocks you will see a deep purple. Purple is excellent for your main color, and the color of the bridesmaids gowns. The wedding bouquet can be lovely purple flowers, like the hydrangea or the calla lily.

Accent the flowers with feathers that resemble peacocks. This will highlight your central theme. You also may wish to decorate the dinner area with dark purple.

Final Thoughts

When you are planning a peacock themed wedding, your invitations are a good place to start. Make sure that invitations include your theme. Your main color may be best served with a deep or plum purple. Do not forget to use your four main color selections of bronze, teal, gold, and bronze. Check to be sure that the bride looks fine in these colors, or consider another theme. Purple is a good selection for bridesmaids, and for table cloths.
