Patterns, Polka and Prints

Prints, patterns and polka dots have breezed on into our fashion world for this summer. It is only fitting that we follow suit. With leopard print, zebra print, patterns of all colours and boldness its hard to not be that fashion savvy ‘bride’ to be.

Table linens
While prints and loud designs may be daunting and ‘too much going on’ for guests walking in, it doesn’t mean you can’t use them. What I have seen a lot of are patterned table linens under a much shorter white linen. So you can see a sneak peek of the design but it doesn’t overpower the room. Accessories your table layout with design/pattern napkins, or plates. All keeping it still quite elegant.

The head table is the focus of the room, where the new Bride, Groom and close ones all align. Why not have a super bold patterned backdrop! Maybe with some neutral colours to tone it down a bit. The Feature table should make a statement.

There are an unlimited number of designs for stationary so customising these are pips. From the moment your guests receive their save the date, or first invitation – keep their eyes peeled…. remain consistent, using the same theme throughout. This helps guests recognise which design is associated with which couple. It’s a mind game at the end of the day, and making things memorable and at the forefront of people’s minds is a tricky strategy, but not impossible.

Whether it’s the bride’s gown, the bridesmaids dresses, or the groom’s boutonniaires. A little pattern here and there goes a long way. It makes you feel a part of the day as opposed to be a stranger who has been warped into the wedding.

Ring Pillow
Pattern it up! BUT don’t go as far as till you cannot find the rings on them! This won’t look very good at the altar.

There are so many more ways you can pattern your theme-up with, it’s all about being creative, looking around, researching and if you need one, a wedding planner is qualified with a great eye for these things.

    As with anything weddings, timeless elegance is key… those pictures are going to be around for a long time! Although ones from the 80s seem to have all disappeared! 😉
