Show Your Stripes!

Stripes are everywhere these days... including weddings! Why you ask? I think its because stripes are the chameleon of patterns! They have the ability to go classic, sporty, or modern. Just look at how a simple stripe is used in varying ways to create these different looks...

Far right: A modern striped invitation from Confetti Stationery. In the bottom row, a display of varying stripes all from Wedding Paper Divas.

Not one to shy away from the use of stripes, Ellenor used a fun yellow and white stripe in our "Bright Spot" wedding.

Both the men and women in this wedding sported stripes down the aisle, as did the ring bearer by carrying a custom made ring pillow by Sweet B Papers found on Etsy.

Stipes were also brought in as napkins at our "Life's about to get more colorful" Baby Shower!

In addition, Ellenor will be using stripes in an upcoming wedding. Our inspiration began with this image of soft black and white striped table cloths. We loved the unexpected look that these brought to the tables while still being classic and beautiful.

We'll be using similar fabric as custom made runners along our long, "family style" tables in a Jane Austin inspired wedding. Keep checking back with us for more details on this wedding!

Want to incorporate stripes into your wedding? Try striped shoes! Striped food! Or favors with stripes! Still in need of some more inspiration? You know Martha always has some good ideas!
