With prints and patterns dominating our Summer/Spring fashion trends for 2013, we have seen these incorporated into wedding themes this year, and I’m sure will continue to see this later this year when Spring approaches.
I have always loved the added dimension that pattern adds to a wedding theme. This does however have to be carefully added in clever ways as it can easily dominate and become a bit overwhelming. A way to manage this is to contrast the pattern against other plain and softer colours. For example a striking red pattern with a pale grey, or a bright turquoise with a softer pink.
Chevron is a popular way to add a bold and modern flair to a wedding. The trick comes in the colours you combine it with. For a rustic and more vintage wedding look, pair light pink with a slate grey. Or to encapsulate the wedding couple’s dynamic, bold and creative personalities, use a bright turquoise blue with a softer red or orange! Each combination offers a completely different look and creates a unique atmosphere. The thing to remember is to add the pattern carefully and cleverly into small elements of your wedding, the options are endless!
In today’s blog, we have looked at some turquoise blue chevron inspiration…
Introduce the colour and theme in your wedding invitations, add it to your ceremony with an aisle runner, or use the chevron pattern in your wedding reception table runners, napkins or place name tags.
I just love the turquoise chevron straws, and the effect of the pattern against the dark chocolate cake is incredible!
