Plaid Wedding Inspiration

Looking for something a little non-traditional for your theme? Why not deck out your wedding in plaid?! Sure, it’s kind of perfect for this type of year when you go with wintery/Christmasy green and red plaid, but you can also have plaids done up in colors that make it the perf out of the box pattern for any wedding season, looking snazzy in yellow and blue, hot pink and orange or green and brown for an earthy flair. It’s a great way to combine the prepster and the funky, the whimsical with the traditional, and hey, you don’t need to be having a Scottish wedding to pull it off!

For a fall or winter wedding, this cute little plaid flannel is pretty much the definition of adorbs, adding a rustic, casual feel to the bride in contrast to her poofy white wedding gown. Love! Plus, she looks quite cozy!

For that man of yours you can go all out with a head to toe plaid suit – the epitome of geek chic – or you can keep the ‘tude a little more subtle with a plaid tie or bowtie and pocket square.

I wouldn’t have expected to love these plaid bridesmaids dresses quite this much, but somehow they just seem to totally work! They’re pretty, they’re interesting, and the white bouquets are the perfect way to keep the look from getting a little too harsh on the eyes.

And of course, there are super cute ways for the bride to put on a little plaid under that wedding gown, gussying up her leg with a plaid garter belt or adding super cute little plaid bows to her white wedding shoes like these ones – so pretty, and still so chic!

For the wedding bouquet, it’s gonna be tough to find plaid wedding flowers unless you go the paper flower route. Your best bet is to go with a bouquet all done in one of the colors of the plaid pattern, and then to wrap up the stems in a plaid ribbon – it’ll create a dynamite effect without the flowers and ribbon outdoing each other.

When it comes to the reception tables, table runners with plaid patterns are an elegant way to bring a rustic look without overdoing it on the stripes on stripes, and wedding favors like these sweet little candle tins favors can come personalized in several different patterns, so get yours clad in plaid!
