A teal wedding theme is an interesting choice for your wedding decor, as teal gives a diverse range of decorating options. Determine if you prefer a formal or playful affair and whether the decor will be totally the colour of teal or whether you will incorporate accent colours into the design. Pick the shade of teal you want carefully, as it ranges from a light to deep hue, before you begin the wedding plan.
Teal is a medium blue-green colour and is naturally found in the eyes of peacock feathers. You can design your wedding around a peacock feather as you choose colours from the bright green surrounding the eye or the turquoise blue, midnight blue and golden brown within the eye. Or, offset the deep teal colour with a cream, as the yellowish tint complements the green of the teal and brightens the blue. Another option is a neutral metallic, such as silver, to bring a cool, formal design; or gold, for one that carries warmth; another option is to go with black to create a dramatic effect.
Dress the bride in a floor-length teal gown or opt for a white one with gold overlay and beading around the bodice and the accompanying veil. The design can have a large bow on the waist by the train with a peacock feather in the centre, or the bride can carry a bouquet of flowers surrounded by peacock feathers instead of ribbons. Bridesmaids can wear a teal or golden brown dress, while the groom and his men wear a brown suit with a teal cummerbund and striped tie. Suitable jewellery accents for all are gold with topaz or teal crystal as the stone.
A flower girl can drip cream rose petals from her basket for the bride, while pew bows of teal ribbon contain a golden diamante inner with a peacock eye or creamy white rose inside. You can place teal vases holding tulips and roses at the altar and around the couple. The reception area decor can be teal tulle with twinkle lights inside, swagged from the wall to the centre of the ceiling where a large teal tissue paper ball hangs down. Have teal satin table linens flow across the table or tied as a sash to chair backs. You can also attach large bows, similar to the pew bows, to the sides of the table and chairs for added decoration.
Centrepiece and Favors
You can create a centrepiece of peacock feathers with the ends of the feathers arranged as a circle in the centre of the table. Placing a round circular vase over the ends of the feathers or quills, put metallic holiday balls matching the colours inside the bowl. Another option is to place a teal fan vase over the quills and arrange tulips and roses into a fan design display. Favours for guests can include peacock feathers, writing quills with ink, peacock chocolates, cookies or a peacock fan.
