That’s right, friends! As top wedding trends remain on the upswing of all things fabulous, patterns and prints have become all the rage. From bridesmaids dresses and bridal accessories to photo booth backdrops and table settings, today’s modern bride is pleased as punch to incorporate print-tastic patterns into her wedding day decor!
In my book, prints will be a kiey trend for 2013 weddings. We’ve already seen a few of these starting to come through, but this year and next, I think it will really catch on – everything from stripes and chevron to delicate florals and bold graphic prints. Look out for print fabric used as table runners and napkins, print bridesmaids’ dresses (either as one of a mismatched grouping or a striking collection) and even on groomsmen’s shirts or pocket handkerchiefs. Done right, it’s a great look, and if you tie it into your stationery well, can create a lovely ‘brand’ that brings the whole design of the wedding together. (Gaby, SouthBoundBride.com)
And after further research, I can honestly say that I wholeheartedly agree! A word of caution, however, for brides having a “prints charming” wedding, you need to be weary not go overboard and create a scheme of pattern overload or one that is too matchy-matchy. The point of patterns is to create interest and not to cause confusion or too much repeat.
Because patterns offer such a wide variety of shapes, styles and designs, it’s no wonder brides have found them to be such a vital part of wedding planning. Just consider for a second how much more upscale, high fashion or chic a wedding will be when you pair one of the following to your big day celebration…
Contemporary, mod-inspired nuptials + Sleek chevron = LOVE
Elegant, upscale wedding + Demurely damask = LOVE
Boho-chic ceremony + Overflowing floral = LOVE
Seriously, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, ladies! So go out, get print crazy and let us know how it goes!
