Peacock, with its subtly beautiful colours and feather, has come to rule everything on the Indian wedding scene. Yet, this is not something new. As a favourite henna design and motif for bridal lehenga, peacock has been a part of Indian weddings for a long time now. However, you will be amazed by the sheer onslaught of it in virtually every domain related to weddings. Be it the attire, décor, jewellery, invitation cards, thrones, favours and what not! So, take a look at adding peacock motifs to your wedding celebrations.

Traditional yet chic

The uniquness of peacock motifs and designs is that it combines tradition and modernity in a perfectly harmonious way. You have a lot a scope for experimentation because no one said that you have to use peacock in its entire colourful glory. You can also steal ideas from the white English peacocks for your wedding theme, which will add colourful tints and charm to your celebrations. Other than this, you can go for transparent silhouettes with a dash of pink or purple.

It does not necessarily have to be only one particular design that will be there everywhere. The lehenga can boast of feather spread peacocks in the lower panels, while small peacock heads can be set to wink in the tassels attached to the ends of your dupatta or veil.

You can pick up some beautiful gold jewellery set with peacock motifs in them. You can also go for regular accessories like key rings, vermillion case, toe rings, etc. with peacock designs and colours. These will add a very rich, unifying touch to the entire ensemble.
