Happy Monday lovely readers. I hope you had a marvelous weekend. When I was thinking about this weeks post I was surprised I haven't talked about stripes especially since I LOVE stripes. Well I wasn't going to let this weeks In the Details post be about anything else but the design detail of stripes in a wedding. One of my favorite images is this Dorothy Draper inspired wedding from Brides
I love everything about it, the striped table linens, mixed with the vibrant colors in the floral centerpieces and the glorious gold flatware that I was wondering, if you incorporate stripes in your wedding how far do you go? My thought is you keep it subtle and simple like an accent to the dress with a pretty ribbon detail or just the bouquets.
Mix it into your reception decor details or the dessert buffet table
Now it's true, too many stripes can definitely turn a good idea bad quick, so I wouldn't advise stripes on everything, but I would say pick and choose, and remember less is definitely more.
