Peacock-themed Weddings... Swoon!

Peacocks are such lovely and graceful birds. Their colors... vibrant teal, green and purple... swoon! It only seems appropriate that they'd be incorporated with such beautiful occasions as weddings! (A television network? Not so much.) 

Here are some of my favorite finds for an elegant peacock-themed wedding.

Paper Goods

Invitations
Save-the-dates and invitations set the tone for your wedding. They're the first introductions to guests about what to expect for your big day. How would you like to have this beauty show up in your mailbox? (I would die, then go shopping for the perfect matching dress!) This quintessential peacock invitation from Vintage Invites would loudly proclaim to guests, "This wedding is going to knock your socks off... better buy a nice gift!"

Menu/Place Setting
These jeweled peacock menus created by Simply Posh Design are exquisite. They feature Swarovski crystals, hand-dyed silk ribbon and peacock feathers, and were created for the winning couple on VH1's "Tough Love Couples: The Wedding Episode." Just gorgeous.

The Dress

The elegant draping of this La Sposa strapless organza ball gown almost mimics how the feathers fall on a peacock. (It's also beyond gorgeous!) The drop waist is perfect for adding a peacock-feathered sash. Look at the train... stunning.

Bridal Sash
Sadie Bloom Designs offers a purple satin fabric flower peacock-feathered bridal sash, with a large, blingy rhinestone center. Two curled peacock feathers finish the look. The "Elise" Sash is one of our most popular pieces!

Shoes
Aren't these peacock turquoise heels just fierce? Etsy seller Norakaren offers these - and a plethora of - hand-dyed, hand-painted peacock feather bridal shoes. Talk about perfect!

For The Men
Green hypericum berries, ivy leaves, purple statice and a peacock feather make this boutonniere a simple and elegant choice for the groom and his groomsmen.

Aisle Decor
Attention to detail makes a wedding extraordinary. These bouquets of green hydrangea, lavender orchids,  purple lisianthus and single peacock feather would make the perfect backdrop as the wedding party marches down the aisle.

The Cake

Last but not least, the cake. This peacock feather cake, created by San Francisco's Cake Coquette, features four tiers of scrumptious wedding cake art. So detailed, so beautiful!
