By on August 21, 2017

In a previous post, we discussed how patterns like the polka dot can quickly and effectively liven up any wedding scene. Whether patterns form the central wedding theme, or are used as an accent to the main colors, they are a pleasant addition. Some patterns like stripes can be used everywhere, from the wedding cake to the bridesmaids dresses and rest of the décor.

Stripes are an interesting update to any wedding color scheme. When it is done in moderation, this pattern has the ability to add sophistication and make a color combination more attractive. Depending on the colors and width of stripes that are chosen, stripes can make a scene look more serious, casual or contemporary. Small pin stripes and big bold colored stripes have a casual feel, while softly colored stripes have a stylish effect. Hence it is a pattern to consider using at your wedding.

Check out our top ten ideas here, on how you can add this interesting detail into your wedding.

8.Striped shirt and plain tie, or the other way around

Don’t leave your bridegroom out of the picture, as stripes are a design detail that he can easily carry off.

Either choose a striped shirt and a plain silk tie, or the reverse; a plain shirt and striped tie. Either way, you will not have any difficulty finding these choices, as stripes is a detail that rules almost everything in the men’s fashion department. The bonus here is that your groom can easily make up for the fact that you cannot wear a striped wedding dress. Well, a striped wedding dress would be stretching the theme a little too far, don’t you think?

    With all of the new wedding ring designs, I really see the striped being implemented in that. Sort of a new twist on the typical wedding dress.

    I wonder if these tips would work the same for polka dots? Do you think?

      I do not see why they wouldn’t. The tips were not exclusive to the stripes, right? Just the fact that you are using a pattern.
