Playing with Patterns

Stripes, dots, and florals oh my! There are so many patterns to inspire your wedding look.  From large details to small, mixing patterns into your color palette will add character and complete your overall design.  Patterns that are currently trendy include bold stripes, fun and pretty florals, geometric shapes, and colorful dots. Of course we would not recommend incorporating all of these patterns at once, but there’s no harm in mixing a little floral with a pinch of stripe.  When in doubt, just be you! Here are some of our favorite ways to play: 

1. Opt for unique bridesmaids dresses that show off the pattern behind the wedding

2.  Mix and match your invitation suite and envelope liners with patterns like preppy stripes and fancy florals.

6.  Let them eat cake! A fun one that is. Don’t be afraid to blend polka dots and stripes, just try keeping them in the same color.

7. Slip into a patterned gown! If you dare to be different, surprise your guests (and your groom) with an out of this world wedding dress.
