One of the hottest patterns of the year is Ikat! It is no wonder that this awesome pattern is becoming the newest inspiration for weddings. The Ikat pattern is one of my favorite patterns since it typically incorporates a variety of colors. You can use these colors to create the perfect wedding palette.
Choosing the perfect Ikat invitation is a great way to give your guests a glimpse in to the colors and theme of your wedding.
One way to use the Ikat pattern is to choose an Ikat bridesmaid dress! If a dress is to much pattern for you, look at having your girls carry an Ikat purse or shoes. Ikat shoes are also a great way for you as the bride to wear a white traditional wedding dress but also wear Ikat.
My favorite way to use Ikat in a wedding is with the reception table linens. For a bold look use an Ikat floor length linen or for a more subtle look use an Ikat table runner.
And the cake is another great and unique way to add the Ikat pattern in to your wedding theme!
You can even find Ikat boxes perfect for a wedding favor!
Would you have an Ikat wedding theme? What is your favorite way to use the Ikat pattern for a wedding?
A classic wedding theme that is perfect for couples who love for the ocean is a nautical wedding theme. In my opinion it isn’t a nautical wedding without incorporating the color navy. You can choose to use navy as your main wedding color or pair it with another color like yellow, red or even pink!
In designing your nautical themed wedding there are so many elements that you can incorporate. For example, some brides choose to use the anchor throughout the wedding including on the invitations and even the cake.
One of my favorite ideas is to use an actual boat in the decor. You can use it to string the place cards for guest seating or even to hold drinks during the reception.
Don’t be afraid to play with patterns like this large striped linen or even the navy chevron wedding cake!
Use the same pattern to cover the stems of your bouquet! You can also use elements like rope for the grooms boutonniere.
Rope is also a great accent for other elements throughout your wedding. It looks gorgeous in a bouquet or even on a wedding cake!
Look how cute this idea is to have guests leave you a “message in a bottle” instead of having a traditional sign in book!
Also love the idea of using paddles to create a directional sign!

Who would have ever thought that buttons could be a decor item for weddings? I know I didn’t but was pleasantly surprised to see all of the ways that buttons can be used to accessorize a wedding.
One of the ways you may have seen buttons at a wedding is in the flowers. You can choose to put a few buttons in your bouquet to add texture or have your entire bouquet made out of buttons for a super bold look. Buttons can also be used to make the groom and groomsmen boutonnieres.
If you have buttons in your bouquets and boutonnieres why not use them throughout the event? Use buttons to fill glass containers for your reception centerpieces and add flowers in the jars to add a touch of romance. You can even make button banners and
A clever way to use buttons is on the escort or place cards. You can use buttons to decorate the cards or have the names of the guests imprinted on an actual button. Such a unique idea!
Don’t forger about using buttons on your wedding cake!
If you really want a bold and unique look, find a wedding dress embellished with buttons! If made correctly it can look elegant and beautiful!
