Chevron Wedding Details

You may already know of my love for chevron anything (home decor, fashion and now weddings) from my previous blog about chevron cakes but I wanted to share how easily you can incorporate chevron details in to your wedding.  What I love most about the chevron pattern is how versatile it is.  It looks great at a casual affair or an elegant, formal wedding.

I hate to repeat myself, but I truly believe the best weddings don’t forget about the details.  Using splashes of the chevron pattern in the details will give a modern look to any color palette.

When using chevron details don’t be afraid to mix colors and patterns to compliment each other.  The texture of the different materials and patterns can make for an interesting and beautiful tablescape.

One of the easiest ways to use chevron for your tables is to add a chevron napkin or table runner!

Look how modern, yet simple these tables can look by just adding a chevron patterned table runner!

Wedding stationary is a great way to incorporate the chevron pattern. Chevron looks great on invitations, programs and place cards. You can also use the same stationary to decorate your guest favors.

Some grooms are even wearing chevron bow-ties, ties or pocket squares!

Brides are even joining in and wrapping their bridal bouquet in the same chevron pattern to match their groom!

Happy Planning!

Kids Table Ideas

Let’s face it, as much as you may not want kids to attend your wedding or even indicate an adult reception there will inevitably be some guests that have to bring their children.  You have to decide what is most important to you….you allow them to attend the wedding with their children or put your foot down and inform them they cannot come with their kids.  If you make the latter decision, be prepared to upset some friends or family.   

In my opinion kids are an important part of the family and why hassle with upsetting people just to prevent a handful of kids from attending.  Trust me, if you choose an evening wedding most  guests will leave the kiddies at home with a sitter however out of town guests may not have that luxury.  If you are having a few kids attend why not come up with some creative ideas to make them happy and keep them busy at the same time!

One of my favorite ideas is a kids table or kids “station” where the kids can go either during dinner or immediately following dinner and have their own fun. 

 Make sure to give the kids a variety of fun things to do….some of my favorite things are crayons, stickers, and coloring books.  Any fun container (like the lunchbox above)  is a perfect way to display all of the items. I would also suggest personalizing the gift or container. Just like adults, kids will feel very special knowing they were thought of for the wedding.   Another great idea is to use parchment paper for a table mat or over the entire table so you don’t have to worry about any messes or drawings on the linens.

Be creative and choose age appropriate items for the children attending.  If you have kids that are a little older you can even put card games or puzzles that all of the kids can have fun playing with!  How cute is the mini etch-a-sketch below?!

 The best part is that all of these fun items also double as great favors for the kids to take home with them after the wedding!
