I think there’s something really fun about stripes. As I write this I’m wearing a striped t-shirt I rarely am out of, and a large portion of my wardrobe consists of the exact same pattern in different colours! We’re seeing striped wedding ideas pop up in celebrations everywhere, and the great thing about this versatile pattern is that you can pretty much use it anywhere in your decor. The feel is modern and vivacious, and perfect for those looking to get away from the rustic or vintage look. Brides in general seem to have a pretty good sense of less-is-more when it comes to this type of pattern, especially when using monotones as we have here. To lessen the harshness of the look a little, go for a navy instead of a black shade. How fun would the dress below be for a bridesmaid? I’m in love with the shoes as well which would add some quirkiness to a bridal look. You can use a stripe to great effect with little touches in your place settings on linens, place cards or napkins. Balance this out with a dash of hot pink or some greenery to add a bit of warmth, and use ivory or off-white as your background shade to make sure the white between your stripes pops. Fun details like striped straws and ribbon for your bouquet add a party feel. And of course, I had to include one from our latest obsession, a naked sponge cake– an easy way to incorporate a striped pattern without being heavy handed about it!

    I love stripes, too! ( and can’t seem to stop wearing them, either!) I love seeing stripey pattern in wedding decor, and you’ve found some beautiful examples! Those shoes are especially fantastic!
