After last week’s sweet and fun letter from a bride who needed help styling her NY barn wedding, I’ve received a ton of other similar requests from couple’s looking for help with their weddings as well. I love it! You know I’m more than happy to help. So today I have another bride looking for style advice.
Monica wrote in to say how much she loves the chevron pattern. I’m right there with you Monica! She also included the image of the cake below and said she’d really like to design her wedding around this cake. How fun is that?
So let’s make it happen!
First thing’s first, you need to pick your dress. Pretty much everything revolves around the tone of your dress. So it should be one of the first items you choose. If you love the chevron pattern, you will love this dress by Henry Roth. I adore the color of this dress as well as I think it really compliments the cake you like so much.
Next up, this bouquet would be a lovely bunch to pattern all the floral arrangements after.

This paper suite with it’s chevron pattern and colors of mint-green, blue-gray and tan are a beautiful combination from which you can draw inspiration for items like the bridesmaid’s dresses or the groomsmen’s attire and also other decorative details for the ceremony and reception.
Personally I love the look of all different colored and styled dresses for the bridesmaids, but if you lean more towards a traditional style where all the maids match, pick yellow or mint and let your girls choose a style that fits best for their body type.
All dresses are from Dessy

With the browns in the stationery and the twigs coming out of the cake, I think dark brown chairs like the ones shown above for the ceremony and reception would be ideal. I also love the idea of using chalkboards displaying the chevron pattern, cute pinwheels, gift bags and a simple set table with a pretty chevron runner like shown above.
This tie and boutonniere combo would be perfect for the groom or groomsmen and the chevron printed succulent escorts are my favorite. I always love an escort/guest gift that combines as one!
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by!
