20 Ways to Include Striped Wedding Details on Your Big Day

If you love stripes, you'll adore these stylish details from real weddings!

Stripes are one of those timeless patterns that complement a variety of themes and motifs: nautical, Americana, classic, preppy, modern, and so many more. While stripes are routinely apparent in fashion year after year, they're also notable in event décor. Whether you lean towards the quintessential black-and-white striped look, favor a glamorous gold-and-white stripe, or enjoy a coastal blue-and-white stripe, there are a multitude of ways to include stripes in your wedding.

If you adore stripes but don't want the pattern to overbear the rest of your décor, implement them on the envelope liner of your save-the-date card or invitation suite, or have your groom gift his groomsmen striped ties or socks for a festive accessory to wear on the big day. More prominent ways to showcase stripes include asking your bridesmaids or flower girls to don the pattern on their dresses, bedecking reception tables with striped linens, or even housing the celebration in a dramatic tent featuring elegant striping. 

For more ideas, be inspired by the images below – all from real weddings – to see if incorporating stripes on your wedding day is right for you.
