Bold and beautiful: stripes make a strong, yet sophisticated, statement on your wedding day.
Struggling to choose between two colour schemes? Finding it difficult to pick one colour for your tie? Select two complementing shades, and double up for a stripe-pattern themed wedding!
Stripes are popular for nautical themed weddings, but there are so many more colours and themes that suit a stripey wedding day! Black and white, yellow and grey, navy blue and blush (The Wedding Affair favourite, of course!) – you’ll be spoilt for choice. So let us inspire you with this week’s Monday Moodboard.
Why stick with one-colour bridemaids dresses? Take inspiration from the gorgeous styles on our first mood board for some statement, yet elegant, striped maids’ dresses – such as the black and white styles as showcased on One Wed. Continue the theme with a groom’s tie, or pinstriped suit. Or, if you’re feeling bold, you could even choose a striped wedding dress: this stunning design we found on Pinterest shows you how to do traditional with a twist.
When it comes to décor, the options are endless! Whether it’s a statement canopy, like the one we’ve featured from Brides.com, or as part of a subtle table setting (we love the elegant nod to a theme from Grey Likes Weddings), you can incorporate the pattern as much or as little as you choose. Flower poesies can be tied with beautiful striped ribbon to match your colour scheme.
Let our final board inspire your striped cakes and stationery. Go bold in black and white – with added floral colour – with the gorgeous cake we hunted down on Pinterest, or Bella Cupcake Couture’s delectable delights. This theme’s not not just about vertical and horizontal stripes: take a look at the beautiful pink cake courtesy of Brides.com for a delicate chevron pattern: a subtle nod to the stripe theme. Introduce the pattern for your wedding day with beautiful stationery: we love the sophisticated emerald green invitations from Etsy.
As always, click the links underneath each board to find the source of our inspiration (L to R):
