Sophisticated and classic, stripes are often associated with nautical affairs but you don’t need to be a coastal bride to use this type of design in your big day decor. I love the subtle masculinity that stripes bring to a wedding setup – a preppy vibe if you will. And nothing quite beats a bridesmaid in bold bands – they just look so fun! The trick to avoiding a beachside atmosphere (if you’re keen bypass this look) is to use color palettes that don’t fall into the navy and sea green spectrum – peaches, pinks, golds, etc. Try experimenting with different widths and contrasting materials to make stripes look interesting. This roundup will help you to catch some ideas and become a pretty stripy bride.
