Monsoons are the dancing season for our national bird, peacock and that in itself is a magical occurrence and a sight for sore eyes, indeed. Peacocks not only are an epitome of royalty and grace but they hold an undying significance in Indian weddings, especially by Hindu families. Some of the many attributes of a peacock are in full harmony with that of Indian weddings; wisdom, love, longevity, foundation, sensuality and sexuality being some of the most symbolic ones. No wonder Indian weddings are heartily pious affairs!
So if you’re having a monsoon wedding, the peacock-inspired theme might just be the vibe you’re looking for. We can’t emphasise enough on how magnificent the colour palette of the peacock is. The bright hues of iridescent blue, java green, copper, yellow and pigments of purple make for an amazing colour palette for monsoon weddings too.
Without further ado, let’s show you some creative ideas wherein you can use peacock designs for your monsoon wedding. Be it for the decor, invitations or the wedding cake, there are myriads of ways to amplify the vibe of your monsoon wedding.
