It’s crisp, bold and graphical with a bit of an edge. A bit more preppy than stripes, it doesn’t go as far as argyle or harlequin. Chevron is popping up literally everywhere these days and weddings are no exception.
I love chevron for its combination of properties. Although an entire chair apolstered in it is on my wish list, I think that in the context of weddings, it’s best in small quantities. I’d stay away from a line-up of bridesmaids in chevron patterned dresses, but think that bowties or clutches are a fun, unique way to incorporate it. It would also be fitting for a ring bearer pillow or napkin rings. A table cloth in chevron over the desert bar table would certainly draw attention and set that space apart.
We seet it most often as one color and white in combos like a grassy green or navy or raspberry or, in grey and cream or white. Chevron in a gradiation of similar colors creates an almost ombre feel adds a beautiful casualness more fitting to an Colorado wedding. While chevron in light grey, charcoal, white and black would make an interesting backdrop for a splash of real color like lemon yellow.
If you love chevron as much as I and would like to incorporate it into your wedding day, I’d say it’s probably most suited toward indoor, traditional venues. Chevron and the farm or ranch mix if the lines are blurred and the colors are varied, but the contrast of colors and geometric feel will feel rigid set against Mother Nature’s breeze.
It’s also important to consider the direction of the lines. Much like stripes, the direction can make something seem taller or wider–a good thing for a dessert table filled with beautiful and delicious goodies!
