14 ideas to incorporate stripes into your wedding

  • Florals

Flowers and weddings are a match made in heaven, and you can make the most of this bounty of nature by adding it in lavish doses to your wedding theme. Apart from incorporating it into the décor and stationery, we think you should also consider dressing up your pretty bridesmaids in flower print dresses. Your bridesmaids will go crazy over this printed dress from the Alfred Sung bridesmaids collection. Check it out here.

Now that we’ve had a detailed look at a handful of beautiful prints that would be great for your wedding day, let us discuss a few important things that you should keep in mind when using prints and patterns.

Follow these tips and you are sure to do it right.

1.Have a color scheme in mind: When doing patterns and print, it is easy to go overboard. If you do, you will end up with a cluttered scheme and the entire effect will be spoiled. To avoid this, pick a scheme with a maximum of four colors to mix and match. Consider how practical it is to work with these colors, and where you can add each combination. Sketch the imagery in your mind, and collect inspiration from available sources on your wedding inspiration board. Try out different combinations, till you find the right one that appeals most to you. Then proceed with the plan.

2.Do patterns and prints in the right doses: Getting the most of patterns and prints is possible, only when you do the combinations in moderation. Prints can freshen up the scenery when they are mixed with a solid base color, that offsets the busy look. Collect swatches in various combinations and set it up against plain solid colors, till you find the right mix that you can use in different places through the décor.

3.Start with the stationery: We said earlier that your invitation is the right place to offer your guests a sneak peek into the prints you will employ at your wedding. So, make sure you choose an invitation, envelope seal or envelope liner that will feature the chosen theme element. Apart from that you can further dress up your wedding venue with place cards, coasters, menus and programs centered around the theme. This is one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways to add patterns and prints into your décor.

4.Place it where it will be noticed: Some clever planning is necessary for this part. To make a statement with prints and patterns, you should not just float it around in the background. You should place it where it will be most noticeable. Place it against items that are simple and plain, so the prints stand out against them. For example, display the patterns as cupcake tiers in the candy buffet, or add it as ribbons on a plain favor bag. Most prints, including stripes, polka dots and chevron, can be incorporated into wedding cakes. Do this in the right dose, and it will be a statement look that everyone will appreciate.

5.Use it in unexpected ways: This is one of the quickest ways to make sure the theme comes alive. Do a little brainstorming to add your central theme into places where your guests will least expect to see it, and it will not go unnoticed. Some places to add the little element of surprise are in your centerpieces, by adding it to the vases in which the flowers will be displayed. You can also use it in lavish doses in the program and menu cards, as it will not escape being noticed when your guests read through them.

6.Wear it well: If you have your mind set on a white wedding dress, don’t compromise on that to incorporate pattern. Instead think of other ways in which you can cleverly add prints to your look. Accessories like shoes, sashes and bouquets can be dressed up with the pattern you choose, thus integrating your look with the theme you have chosen. Something as simple as tying a fabric with the chosen print around your bouquet, is all it takes to update your look and match it to the theme. For your groom, consider a patterned tie or printed shirt in the chosen theme. Similarly you can have your bridesmaids in dresses that feature the chosen pattern or gift them accessories that sport the print.

With these tips in mind, you are all set to add the right prints and patterns to your wedding. The best thing about using this idea is that even a little goes a long way. You do not need elaborate plans or go through yards of fabric swatches to find the one combination that will make your wedding truly unique. Having a theme that works, couldn’t get easier than this, and it is the perfect way to make the right statement.

Our invitation suite has wedding stationery in almost every print, pattern and color you can possibly imagine. Finding your dream color and print combination couldn’t get any easier than this. Similarly, you will find an endless gallery of options in wedding favors, reception décor, table and aisle decorations and more in our wedding favors shop.

Our top four favorite wedding themes

One of the best things about having a wedding theme is that it gives you the outline to plan your wedding, from the flowers and décor, to stationery and party favors. This makes it easy to bring together the various details in a cohesive manner and make everything part of one big picture.

There are hundreds of wedding themes to explore out there, and even a subtle difference in the colors and elements can help you have a wedding that is uniquely yours. Here, we have rounded up four of our favorite wedding themes, and added ideas that can make these themes unique. Get ready to be inspired.

1.Nautical celebration

Whether held indoors or outdoors, a nautical theme wedding is refreshing and just like the open ocean, is full of energy. This theme can be adapted for both formal and informal weddings, by simply varying the style details.

Venue: The true nautical celebration should be held in a sandy beach, beside waves of frolicking oceans that are a sailor’s actual home. Or better, have it on a cruise boat, if your budget allows it. Alternately, have a ceremony on the beach, and hold the reception indoors. You can consider an indoor venue dressed up with nautical colors and interesting décor elements like a life-size boat or the captain’s deck, for your wedding. To keep the indoor effect real, it is a good idea to employ dim lighting and recreate the beach feel.

Best colors: Colors of the ocean—light blue, sea blue and navy work well. Navy and white stripes are another signature combination associated with this theme. You can also choose tropical colors like orange and yellow as accents that add a pop of color to this palette.

Food: A seafood based food platter is a must-have for this theme. A navy and white striped cake or one that resembles a boat or ship would also be great. Desserts can be fashioned after traditional seafaring elements like starfish, clams, anchors, mussels and oysters.

Interesting dress and décor elements: Ropes may be used throughout the décor for that authentic nautical vibe. Wooden décor with anchor and helm motifs can be used to customize stationery. Also add a personalized anchor photo backdrop in the center.  The wedding party is expected to dress in style, with formal and luxurious fabric like satin for style and elegance. The length of the dresses may be varied between calf and full-length gowns. You can also consider short and fun dresses for a casual beach style ambiance.

Party favors: Perfect party favors are beach theme trinket boxes , miniature starfish candles and metal boats . You can find more beach and nautical theme favor ideas by visiting this page to our cool party favors.

Take it up a notch with: the wedding reception on a cruise ship. A pretty buffet table which resembles a sandy beach and contains oysters and clam shaped cookies with little pearls within. A striped fabric for the ring pillow and bridesmaids in blue and white striped dresses can complete the effect with stunning beauty.

2.Rustic chic

The rustic chic style blends together age-old elements that conjure up nostalgia with modern day style, and is always popular. It is the perfect harmony of what is comfortable with what is glitzy and good-looking.

Venue: Barns, outdoor park venues, ranches and even your own backyard could be converted into a rustic chic wedding venue. Since this is all about working with the details and adding signature elements, it is possible to get the ambiance right in almost any venue with plenty of natural elements in it

rustic wedding

Best colors: Antique or parchment white, burlap, grays and wood are the main highlights for this scheme. Combine this with bright or dark accent colors, but in moderation, for the chic effect to be complete. Colors like peach, navy, cherry red, purples and metals like silver and gold can achieve the desired feel easily.

Food : A naked cake decorated with fresh, ripe berries, flowers or other original ingredients is a must. Wholesome, hearty meals with plenty of organic ingredients, interspersed with attractive and neatly finished gourmet fare can make a rustic chic wedding menu complete. The arrangement is just as important as the taste. Consider using straw, burlap, wood and plenty of glass for the rustic vibe. Also focus on pops of color with fresh flowers, interesting motifs with fabric and a little glitz in the right doses for the chic aspect.

Interesting dress and décor elements: Wine barrels that double up as serving stations, plenty of distressed and reclaimed wooden settings, twigs, wild flowers, candles and soft glowing lights can make the scene breathtakingly beautiful. Burlap, jute and other natural hardy fabric, as well as generous doses of chalkboard elements look great and can seamlessly integrate the less rustic-looking elements into the theme. We can also see the bride and bridesmaids sporting plenty of flowers freshly plucked from the garden, as well as these being used in the centerpieces and décor at the venue. Lace wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses are perfect for this wedding theme.

Party favors: Our antique key charm , candy favors packed into the beautiful lace burlap drawstring bag,  and single use cameras are few of the many options you can choose from our rustic chic favor collection here.

key charm

Take it up a notch with: Lace and burlap are a match made in heaven. Make sure that your wedding dress has plenty of vintage lace for a stylish, but elegant look. Add the chic vibe in with small but prominent elements that instantly add extra glamor to the setting. These could be crystal ware or silver candlesticks that will stand out, but look fantastic in the arrangement. Mason jars are a design accessory forever associated with this theme. Update this humble accessory by choosing various glass jars in different shapes, sizes and textures for an unusual and unexpected effect.

Classic celebrations

A wedding theme that will never go out of fashion, or look dated in any era, the classic wedding theme is an eternal favorite. Following the traditional setup in terms of venue, décor, dressing and style, the classic wedding focuses on traditions and formal practices that haven’t changed even remotely, over the years. This is the style that you can always find plenty of examples for, and everyone is familiar with. However, this doesn’t mean it is boring, as the traditions of these weddings have been passed down from one generation to the next, only because they are truly timeless.

Venue: Classic weddings are best held in banquet halls, hotels or historic venues. The venue should have a magnificent feel to it, either by itself, or because of the choice of accessories used to dress it up. Luxury and style are trademarks of these wedding styles, and this should set the tone for your celebration.

classic wedding

Best colors: There are no specific rules about the colors that can make a classic wedding work. Solid, bold colors mixed with plenty of neutrals are combinations that are usually suitable for classic wedding themes. The idea is to have an interesting palette, but one that isn’t too loud or cluttered. Mixing of metals like gold and silver can add more sophistication to the color palette.

Food: A classic style wedding has to have a plated meal,as a buffet is definitely off the cards. The number of courses may be three or five, depending on your budget. Signature dishes may form the menu, but traditional favorites are popular choices at classic weddings. These are also safer choices than gourmet dishes, which may not be appreciated by everyone. Although the classic tiered cake was a regular at this type of wedding, nowadays couples opt for smaller couture cakes instead. This doesn’t hamper the style though.

Interesting dress and décor elements: Large chandeliers, elaborate centerpieces with luscious blooms and lots of metallic pieces, like candle stands and silver ware are expected. The party lighting will be serious and ballroom style. The wedding party will stick to formal dresses, with the men in tuxes and women in full-length gowns. Bridesmaids may either wear gowns in the signature colors of the chosen color palette, or opt for neutral colored dresses. Hair and makeup will be in formal style, with accessories like silver and pearls preferred over colored gemstones and fabric accessories.

Party favors: The miniature beveled glass trinket box and novelty diamond key chain are some suggestions to consider. For more classic theme wedding favors, visit this page on Best for Bride.

diamond key chain

Take it up a notch with: elaborate arrangements like lush carpets and huge flower balls for décor. Nevertheless, classic doesn’t always have to be big and bold. It is also classic when the details at the party are intricate and carved out with careful thought and consideration. Every detail is done with a touch of class, and this even extends to the flowers and menu presentation. Classic is all about traditions, so planning the ceremony and reception details to show case the cultural practices in the best light, can go a long way in capturing the essence of this theme.

Colorful Garden wedding

Venue: Another great venue for a romantic wedding, the garden wedding has and continues to be a big hit in spring and summer. More geared towards the casual style, the garden is a fun location that equally appeals to the young and old. With the natural landscape forming a brilliant backdrop, pretty accents can be added with colorful flowers to make this type of wedding really spectacular in every way.

garden venue

Best colors: Almost every color goes with green as the background. However, for maximum impact we suggest wonderful pops of vibrant colors like pink, orange, yellow and blue. These liven up the scene and make it fun and exciting. The other colors that look good in the garden scene are the all-time classic white and pastels.

Food: The garden venue is best suited for weddings in the spring and summer, and particularly best for those held in the afternoons or early evenings. Skip the traditional dinner for an exciting and hearty brunch buffet or afternoon tea. Not only is this more cost-effective, it also gives you plenty of time to party with your favorite guests, after the formal function is over. For desserts, consider fresh fruit assortments and cakes like the Bundt cake which is a pleasant deviation from the traditional tiered style.

Interesting dress and décor elements: The chosen décor should naturally blend in with the surroundings. Comfortable seating can be arranged with throws and cushions scattered on large garden mats. We also love to see rustic elements like candles in mason jars and flower garlands decorating the venue. Gardens have to have flowers, and this is one area where the couple should ideally splurge. Short chiffon and lace dresses are beautiful on both brides and bridesmaids, and are more practical than the long floor-length gowns. The men can opt for light shades like white and grey instead of black for their suits.

Party favors: The sweet bird house favor box and mini flower pots are apt themed gifts for your celebration. You can find more options at this link to our favors page.

mini flower pot

Take it up a notch with: impressive decorations at the altar. Don’t worry about going overboard with the floral details, it will only enhance the beauty of your natural landscape. Flower crowns for the bride, or for her girls in waiting are a perfect accessory for this event. Share the joy with the guests as well, by arranging to have extras for them to wear as well.

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.
