In Love with … Chevron

Good morning lovelies!

Chevron took the wedding world by storm last summer, and I’m sure it will still be seen for some time. It’s one of my favourite prints, and I think it adds a bit of preppy in any classic do.

Who says that all chevron stripes have to be the same? I love the casual but chic feel of the ‘watercolor’ invites. The second set is definitely more girly, while I love the preppiness of the third set.

Why leave the bridal party out of the chevron fun? I’ve found two examples of chevron dresses – the first one is straight off the runway, and I spotted the black and white beauty on Etsy. If you’re not too keen on having the bridesmaids all out in chevron, why not giving them a clutch like this one in a bright yellow print? And for those crafty enough with a sewing machine, here‘s a tutorial for a DIY chevron ring pillow.

Favors that double as escort cards that include chevron and succulents (spotted here) … that’s triple bonus points from me!! I also spotted some fabulous ideas with linen – using the chevron print on a runner, or on napkins (turquoise and white napkin seen here; black and white napkin seen here). Both the sandwich wrapper and drink stirrer come from the same backyard engagement shoot … you have to head on over to The Sweetest Occasion for more chevron eye candy.

And I know that your guests will be forever thankful for those stylish gifts … why not include some chevron on wedding totes or on these cool badges (spotted here)?

Which one is your favourite?
