Hand-Glittered Peacock Wedding Invitations

Many wedding invitations have a symbol as its main design element. For this particular invitation, I designed a beautiful pair of peacocks with the first intial of the groom's last name joining them together. The peacock is a symbol found in many cultures around the world, and represents everything from the goddess of mercy, to eternal life, to an emblem of protection, to royalty, to integrity and beauty. The colors of this invitation are similar to the colors of a peacock, with dark blues, aquas, and greens.

The cards are made of a pearlescent metallic white cardstock, with an aqua lagoon metallic envelope, a dark blue metallic cardstock backing, and dark blue metallic response envelope. The dark blue metallic paper gives a very royal feeling to the invitation, and it has so much shimmer. Also, all of the blue feathers in the peacocks and along the bottom border of each card are hand-glittered to give an incredible sparkle and texture to the invitation.

I just love the way the peacock feathers sparkle in the light. If you are interested in these invitations or a custom design for your wedding or event, please contact me at info@pinkorchiddesigns.com!
