Playful Prints: Polka Dots are THE Pattern


A huge trend we’re seeing pop up for weddings this year is patterns. Chevron, ikat, stripes and florals are taking form in table runners, envelope liners, fashion accessories and more. Among our favorite patterns for weddings? Polka dots! Playful, sophisticated and flirty all at once, polka dots are cute as can be — whether you use them as a bold lead for your wedding decoration or as a soft detail on your veil, cake or favors.

Don’t be afraid to mix patterns, either. When done correctly, it’s to die for. Polka dots pair perfectly with stripes and florals, making for an interesting contrast of textures and colors to the eye. Did we mention how great bold patterns look in pictures? It’s harder to capture subtle nuances in soft colors and designs, but a bold dotted detail was born to be photographed.

See the inspiration below for ideas that we think hit it on the dot.

Pretty gold writing on pink polka dots for favor bags. I like this look for other paper projects too, like a scrapbook page.
