The Significance of a Peacock Wedding Theme:
Yes, the peacock themed wedding is on pace to become the hottest new wedding trend this season, but the inspiration for all these colorful innovations, the "humble" peafowl, has been making a splash the world over for most of recorded history.
That's why as you put together your very own peacock feather wedding, you can take a moment to appreciate that peacocks aren't just enjoyed elsewhere around the world, they're treasured:
Peacocks are India's national bird, for instance, and it's been illegal to hunt them there since 1972. Peacocks are also a sacred bird in Hinduism and are the inspiration behind one of China's oldest and most elaborate folk dances.
In Greek and Roman mythology, peacocks were also considered sacred and were the symbols of Juno, wife of Jupiter (more commonly known by his Greek name, Zeus). The distinctive eye-shaped pattern of peacock feathers reminded the Greeks and Romans of both the stars, and as such peacock feathers were believed to represent both Heaven and wisdom.
On a more personal level, peacocks have long been considered living symbols of royalty and brilliance (hardly surprising), but they're also believed to represent kindness, honor, regeneration, and renewal. Also, in some Asian cultures the peacock is a symbol of eternal love and in Buddhist culture peacocks often represent openness.
So, whether you're seeking a deeper meaning to your peacock wedding theme or just happen to be fans of the colors (and we're thrilled to see this kind of vibrancy added to this year's celebrations), it can be fun to keep in mind that this year's newest wedding trend has its roots in one of the world's oldest living symbols!
