Chevron Wedding Details

chevron wedding inspiration

Hello! Brittany here again with my second post on the merriment blog! Chevron is such a fun and popular print these days, in fashion, in decorating, and of course in weddings. It’s one of our favorite patterns too — a certain someone I know may use it for her baby shower! It’s the perfect accent for a classic and preppy wedding or for a fete that’s a bit non-traditional too.

Whether they’re made of bay leaf, laurel or magnolia leaves and whether they’re complemented by dahlia, garden roses or fruit, runners always look so lush and romantic.

brilliant backgrounds

We’re working on some photo booth concepts for a client, and, really, the options are endless. When you’re working with a blank 9′ wide space there’s so much you can do!

Garlands + streamers…the first two ideas by Jordan Ferney are so much fun!

Three of our clients have used Quaker-style marriage certificates in lieu of guest books. Such a nice reminder of the day and who celebrated with you. And unlike other guest book options, a certificate is something you can enjoy hanging in your home for years to come!
