Planning a Striped Wedding (Part 2: Wedding Details)


A few days ago, I wrote about how fun and easy it is to dress up for a striped wedding. This time, I will provide you with some visual inspiration on how to style a stripe-themed wedding reception.

Striped Wedding Cakes

Aside from the bride and groom, the cake is usually the star of the wedding reception. There are tons of inspiration on Flickr but I particularly love this simple yet very attractive striped wedding cake that was featured on Martha Stewart Wedding website’s Striped Wedding Details feature. The stripes are formed by layering strips of multi-colored fondant around the cake’s circumference.

Striped Wedding Bouquets

For a stripe-themed wedding, you can go ahead and choose your favorite flowers. Arrange them into a bunch and tie them up with striped ribbons that match your color motif.

You can buy striped ribbons at craft stores. Alternatively, you can also wrap solid-colored ribbons around your bouquet’s handle in layers to form stripes  (like in the first striped wedding cake above).

To ensure that the striped wedding theme is carried all throughout the event, deck the reception area with bright and funky striped details in your color theme. Here are a few items to get you started.
