Peacock is a great theme for a wedding, but if you decide to do this theme, you’ll need peacock wedding invitations to let your guests know ahead of time what the theme will be. In this post, we’ll showcase a few unique peacock wedding invite designs from Lemon Leaf Prints (lemonleafprints.com).
Peacock themed weddings often feature peacock feathers as part of their wedding decor, so often the peacock wedding invitation designs feature feathers as well, rather than a full peacock bird. There are many unique ways of showcasing peacock feathers and/or peacocks in wedding invitation designs. Birds are often shown off to the side, while feathers might be layered to act as a background or one or two might be showcased off to the side.
Peacock wedding invitation designs prominently feature the bold and dramatic colors of peacock feathers, such as peacock blue (like a royal blue), turquoise, peacock green (like a jade green or teal), brown, and gold or yellow. Depending on the lighting, peacock colors can look very yellow or gold or more brown. One thing is certain, the peacock is brightly colored and the colors are beautiful jewel tone colors. They are deep, luxurious colors and there is nothing at all pastel about them. Because they are darker color shades, peacock weddings are often chosen for fall weddings or for winter weddings. But, elegant jewel tone colors can be used in any season. Some designers will also lighten the colors or pair them with light backgrounds for spring or summer weddings as well.
Peacock theme is also a great choice for ethnic weddings. In particular, it is a popular theme with Indian weddings. Peacocks are popular in Indian Hindu culture and are associated with the deity Lakshmi. In this way, peacocks represent benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and good luck. Great symbolism for a wedding! There are many other things that peacocks symbolize as well depending on the culture, such as, integrity, nobility, and incorruptibility.
Decor is pretty easy. Your bouquets and bridesmaid dresses can feature any of the peacock colors and peacock feathers can be added to bouquets, hair accessories, centerpieces, boutonnieres, table settings and more. And of course, you can add peacock themed accents to your wedding cake.
One thing is certain, a peacock wedding is a vibrant and bold affair. The colors are not at all dull and boring. If you choose peacock for your wedding theme, it will be a zesty occasion.

With Lemon Leaf Prints invitations, the designer who designed the original invitation is the one who personalizes the wording for you when you purchase. This way, you end up with a professionally typeset design using unique fonts and wording layouts. The designer will send you a proof with your personalized wording to approve and then work with you to make it look just right in the event that you need any changes. You don’t have to strictly follow the wording templates either. The wording can say whatever you’d like… just try to keep in mind that you want it to fit on the invitation and be easy to read. So if you add too much wording, it might not look the best it can.
