Peacock motifs have graced lehenga designs for a long time. Unlike other trends that make a noise and then recede into the background, peacock lehenga designs have maintained their position as a classic embellishment since we can remember. Even today, we can see them on lehengas in every designer store. And one high-end designer who embraces this royal motif more than anyone is Rimple & Harpreet. The majority of their lehengas are replete with gorgeous peacock motifs – sometimes overtaking the entire design, other times elevating the look without acquiring a lot of space. Besides RAH, Anita Dongre’s designs are often graced with peacocks. But she’s known to include prints from the entire flora & fauna – swans, hyenas, sparrows, etc. We are yet to see these traditional motifs in Sabyasachi’s designs.
Peacocks don’t just make for an ethereal touch in Indian outfits, but also add meaningful symbolism to your big day. In Hindu Culture, the peacock is associated with Goddess Lakshmi and adds prosperity, health, happiness, and an abundance of luck to your married life. They’re also a symbol of faithfulness and loyalty – adding the perfect inspiration to your wedding. These gorgeous birds are also a sign of beauty and joy, something you’d want to carry on your special day.
Given their heavenly aesthetic, peacocks are also a part of wedding decor and cakes. Their feathers are also kept at the wedding and are considered to bring happiness & luck to newlyweds. And if you want to carry this symbolic bird through your attire on D-Day, here are 27 peacock design lehengas that will serve as perfect inspiration.
#1 Starting off with this whimsical lehenga design that’s a burst of such unique colors and catches your attention with one look. The base is pastel pink with noticeable dark shades of green and blue on top. Contrasted with an orange dupatta, this color combination makes for such a stunning design for a day or sunset wedding. Enhancing the entire creative lineup are the oversized peacock motifs, drawn in full color and lending a traditional touch to her wedding attire.
