Playing Pretty With Patterns

Patterns Patterns over there, Patterns Patterns under here, Patterns Patterns EVERYWHERE! This wedding season was boasting with colorful patterns and we LOVE it! The trend of patterns is taking off this year and we are along for the ride! Patterns can be fun and quirky, romantic and personal, and if placed just so, it can be the catalyst that brings your Wedding together. Brides are stepping out of the box this season and choosing patterns on their cakes, BM/MOH dresses, decorations, invites, straws even! Chevron has made a HUGE appearance in the past year, not only in the fashion scene but most definitely in the Wedding World! We like to believe that it was the “pioneer pattern” for the rest to come! From polka dots, to stripes, floral, to chevron, this season has it all! So we ask you, what’s going to be your pattern of choice? Here are some great ideas to help you along with your decision.

Vintage Floral Patterns seem to be making a big appearance! We LOVE LOVE LOVE these Brides Maids dresses!

Decorations help create the “theme” of your Wedding, from wedding favors, mustaches, to bunting flags, and straws! Creating a modge podge of patterned goods will shake things up a bit! We just adore these little touches!


What do you think about these patterned table cloths? We could just eat them up! You can find patterned fabric at your local fabric store, Hobby Lobby or online! If your budget is a little bit more tight when it comes to the decoration department, then try online shops that re-sell used Wedding decorations. Or hit the road to some of your fave flea malls, and antique stores! You can get quite the bargain on vintage tablecloths!
