Peacock Wedding Invitations
Tips on how to choose Peacock wedding invitations :
1. Get ones which are bright and colorful
2. Go for shades of Blue, Green, Brown, and Gold.
3. Don't go for dull colors!
4. Peacock feather prints, according to me, make a wedding invitation look royal and grand. Select such a card if possible.
5. Take time in choosing the perfect card. You don't want to rush things and end up picking a card that doesn't really go well with your themed wedding ceremony.
How To Make Peacock Wedding Cakes
You can make use of peacock feathers to decorate your wedding cake. You will have to purchase good quality peacock feathers. Make sure that the feathers are arranged in such a way on the cake that they do not interfere when you cut the cake. A few feathers on top of your cake can look lovely! Another alternative method is to arrange the feathers separately from the cake. In the picture shown here, the cake has a fondant bow. Colored fondant gives your cake a more professional look. The video posted here shows how you can make a blue colored fondant.

Peacock Wedding Dresses and Accessories
Dresses to try out for your peacock themed wedding day should mostly be in shades of Blue. Don't go for dull colors because you have to keep in mind that the surroundings are going to be vibrant. If you don't want to go too bold with your wedding dress and want to stick to traditional colors you can do so, but make sure to add some contrasting colors of Blue or Green to your wardrobe. It can be a necklace, bracelet or a hair clip. Why not use a purple/blue bolero shrug to go along with your wedding gown? It will be a nice additional touch.

You can also put some peacock feathers on your hair instead of flowers. I really like those peacock feather hairbands and clips that you get nowadays. Peacock feathers come cheap as compared to flowers and you can even put some in your bouquets. Don't overdo the peacock feathers when it comes to accessories or wardrobe because that will just make you look tacky.
