I like the wax seal!  Do you want to include real feathers or somehow incorporate feathers as part of the invitation design (like just printed images of feathers).  I guess as a guest I’m just thinking I wouldn’t be sure what to make of receiving real feathers in the mail.

No no no! Do NOT spend $1000 on those invitations, you can get them much cheaper. I am also a peacock bride, and I got my invites on Etsy. I am at work right now, and don’t have them with me, but when I get home I will post pics so you can see what we did.  ๐Ÿ™‚  

ETA: We included real peacock feathers in our invites- and we have received nonstop RAVE reviews since we sent them out. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry my fellow peacock bride,  I was away for the past few days and this is the first chance I’ve had to post pics. I didn’t want you to think I forgot you, because I definitely didn’t!

Please disregard the poor quality photos, I just wanted to give you an idea of what we did. I ordered my invitations from this Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/arippke

Our wedding colors are dark plum, apple green, and silver. I got 100 invitations and reply cards with envelopes for $300 plus shipping from this Etsy seller. The invitations are flat, and not raised like the fancier invitations, but I loved the design and knew that I could fancy them up myself to achieve the look I wanted. When the invitations arrived, I took one to the craft store and bought spools of satin ribbon in the apple green to match the lettering. I had already bought peacock feathers online and just cut them down to use for the invitation accent. Then I went to Staples and bought silver-lined envelopes to use for mailing. I took the apple green ribbon and tied it around the invitation and slid the reply card and envelope along with the hotel info card under the ribbon in the back. Then I slid the peacock feather in the front where the ribbon was tied- and voila!- a fancy looking invitation, exactly what we wanted, for a fraction of the cost. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my invitation and reply card BEFORE I added the satin ribbon and peacock feather embellishment:

This is the invitation AFTER I added the ribbon and the feather:

Oh, one more thing I forgot to mention- the Etsy shop where I bought my invites also has a peacock designed invitation in case you decide you don’t want to go with real feathers but still want to have the peacock design.

I had to create an account just so I could respond to this post.

 

I am having a peacock themed wedding and we needed something affordable. I got my wedding invitations SO cheap and they are so wonderful. I ordered them from a seller on etsy. She has lots of different designs and even multiple peacock designs. She was also easy to work with and helped me customize it. We also messed up on the time after they were shipped and she helped us with new ones just for the cost of shipping. She’s really popular ot Etsy. There is a link to my listing below.

I also ordered my peacock invitations on etsy.  I haven’t received them yet, but she is in production wtih them and I’ll get them soon.  Here they are:

I had her change the colors to incorporate more plum than the teal and we changed the ribbon color to a “peacock blue” which is what my table cloths will be.  BMs still wearing plum however.
