Wedding Stripes!

One of my new loves in wedding decor are stripes!  You can find stripes anywhere from stationary and table linens to bridesmaid dresses.  Brides this year are not afraid of mixing patterns and colors to create dimension and interest in to the overall design of the wedding.

Stripes are a perfect addition to most any wedding adding some modern elements to a traditional color palette.  For example, a black and white wedding can seem like a simple color palette but when mixed with stripes it becomes interesting and bold in design.

Stripes are also showing up in bridesmaid dresses.  Thick or thin stripes look great on most body types as long as you choose the right silhouette.

Even guys are joining in on the action and wearing striped bow ties, ties or pocket squares.

I also love using striped fabric in the flowers to wrap the bouquets or boutonnieres.

Wedding cakes are joining in on the stripe trend taking a traditional cake and making it unique with stripes!
