Choosing a theme for your wedding sounds simple, but in actuality, it can sometimes be overwhelming. The options are limitless and the colour combinations are endless. How do you decide what is the right fit for you? The internet can be helpful in seeking out inspiration and the latest trends, however, the research can be extremely time consuming and draining. Where does one begin?
Today we will be featuring some more of Lauren and John’s peacock inspired wedding photos and we will show you how one simple accent can help create your entire wedding-day look. In this case, it started with a peacock feather….
The invitation sets the tone for your overall theme. It’s the first detail your guests will receive that hints at what is to come. Lauren and Johns’ invitation was created using layers of peacock colours such as blue, teal, purple and gold. The reply card also included a small peacock character detail. Lauren used these colours as the foundation of her “peacock” theme.
The ceremony took place on the main level of the Boiler House. Mahogany Chivari chairs with ivory cushions created the aisle way which was flanked with hot pink, purple, champagne and black magic rose petals. Lauren wanted to include a pop of pink amongst her theme colours to brighten the look. You will also see this with her bouquet and centerpieces.
The main level was also illuminated in teal up-lighting which looked gorgeous against the brick walls.
Lauren really wanted to capture the colours of her theme with the bridal party and family. Every gal picked a different peacock or jewel tone colour for their dress and the fellas coordinated with their ties and pocket squares. The attire alone set the stage for the overall theme.
The centerpieces added incredible splashes of colour to the neutral setting of the Boiler House. The contrast of the vibrant colours next to the grains of the wood tables was spectacular. It wasn’t a coincidence that they also happened to coordinate perfectly with the green bucket chairs. The arrangement consisted of purple hydrangea, raspberry gerber daisies, green spider mums, purple carnations and peacock feathers.
The cake was inspired by a lot of the other elements of the wedding; fondant peacock eyes, jewel tone colours, purple ribbon and gum paste flowers to coordinate with the bouquet. It was stunning!
I hope this blog has helped to illustrate how a simple detail such as a peacock feather can shape the overall theme of your wedding day. There are a ton of options for you to choose from, but if you are really struggling with your theme, please feel free to call the girls at Gush and we would be happy to share some ideas with you.
