Peacock Wedding Theme

We decided on a peacock color theme and decided to incorporate peacock feathers in to a few places in the wedding.  This was before we even got engaged! 
We found amazing inspiration boards online!
This, roughly, was our inspiration.

We love the place settings in the board above… minus the purple flowers because i hate purple!!!
 
There were also tons of beautiful ideas for invitations.
I can’t find a better picute of these but they are on the website http://meanttobesent.wordpress.com/2008/11/18/decadent-feathers/ and they are beautiful!!!

That’s a real peacock feather stuck in the ribbon.  How unique and amazing!  Mr. G and I are both fairly unusual characters so we want our wedding to be a little left of center.  This invite would accomplish that for us.  Who expects to get a feather with a wedding invite?
There are tons of options though, so I am going to show a bunch!

There are so many more it’s hard to decide which ones to post!  I love them all.

 

We also thought it would be cute to do boutonnieres like these.

And the best part is that we can make them ourselves, fairly inexpensively!

 

And the last idea was for unique escort cards (table assignment cards).

We thought that these would be really neat in a solid, maybe metallic color.  Again, you don’t expect origami escort cards at a wedding!!! 

 

These are the ideas that we have come up with so far.  We are excited to keep looking and finding ideas to make our wedding different and memorable for ourselves and our guests!

    Great Post! I just predicted that a peacock theme would be big in 2010. It’s a very rich color palette, and the feathers are great for a not-so-feminine look. Especially for the boutonnieres, the guys won’t grumble (too much) about flowers on their lapels.

    Hi, I’m a bride myself and had a peacock themed wedding last year. I used http://www.peacockinvitation.com (I know they have a store on etsy too http://www.peacockinvitations.etsy.com). They were ABSOLUTELY fabulous, and you should definately add their pics to your moodboard;) happy planning:)

    I love the peacock feather theme and am using it for my wedding in June 2010…does anyone know what the purple/blue/green flowers in the bouquet are called??? I’m searching everywhere and can’t figure it out!

    the purple/blue/green flowers look like blue dendrobium orchids

    My florists says they are blue dyed roses and orchids. The dendrobiums are a deep purple with blue. The roses are white but stem dyed blue.
    Hope this helps…I looked at these too : )

    I have just recently gotten engaged and am absolutely in love with the peacock theme for our wedding. I LOVE that oragami peacock! Where did you find it and where can I find instructions for it? All the ones I’m finding on the internet look much less elegant and more blocky/choppy!

        I looked high and low and could not find the exact instructions. There were a few books at the library that had good instructions so that is my suggestion. Good luck!!

    I am the bride’s mother, and she is very interested in a peacock-themed wedding. I am not savvy on-line, so I can’t figure out how to get to the things I am interested in. For example, I would like to look at and order the invitations. The home page did not give me an option to do that.

    Please help. Thank you.

    Hey guys

    I am having a turquoise and bronze theme – also using peacock feathers. I am stuck on the flowers though…I am not so keen on just using cream/white flowers as I feel they will be too dull. My florist suggested using fuschia/cerise gerbera daisies to emphasise the jewel colours, but I am unsure.
    What would you suggest?

    Also, if I include the pink then should I look at adding other bright notes, such as emerald green ribbon, or replace the turquoise overlays with an emerald or sapphire shade?
