Bold Wedding Stripes


It’s been ages since I did a round-up of inspiration images or products on Something Pretty, partially because they’re a bit too time consuming to do regularly while I’m in school, and partially because I still write them twice a week for my fabulous internship (you can check out my posts on the Occasions website every Friday)! Regardless, this detail is one that I’m loving way too much to not dedicate a whole post to. :)

I have practically a closet full of stripes, but nothing quite as bold as the thick black and white stripes I’ve been spotting all over the blog world–in fashion, interior design, and my obvious favorite, weddings. Here are some of my favorite ways that stylish brides have been incorporating this graphic touch into their big days!

For those of us who love this look but aren’t quite in the wedding planning stage (ahem, like me!), I made this mini inspiration board. I’m a serious beginner in Photoshop, so advice is welcome. :)

What’s your favorite striped look? I’m also loving the ideas of a boldly striped wedding cake, or striped bridesmaid skirts…the short black and white Flynn skirt by Anne M. Cramer, perhaps?

    Those stripes are fantastic. I love the high contrast of the black & white….. the bridesmaid dresses and that bow tie are stunning! My closet is full of stripes too; I’m loving mixing them with patterns and dots these days.

  2. Dana says:

  3. I love all these bold stripes! I think I love them most when paired with bright pops of colour!! Oh, and how cute is that grooms stripey, bow-tie! Love it!:)

    I just pinned the striped dresses. That is adorable! Never seen it done before. Lovinggg it!

  6. Sara says:

    I’m obsessed with stripes right now, but it’s kinda a new thing for me. I’m afraid if I were engaged right now I’d totally go for an all stripes theme! Scary!

    the bridesmaids dresses are a good idea! and it looks quite striking as a tablecloth!

    Those J Crew heels–how have I not seen them before?!
