Style Alert! Chevron - You Zig, We Zag

We've noticed lately a trendy style that we're sure you've noticed too. It's called 'chevron' and it's all about the zig and the zag.

Chevron has only recently started popping up in weddings, but we have to admit it looks great! Particularly in this lemon, grey, and white palette we've been seeing so much.

Chevron can work both subtly and with a more bold palette.

The best way to use chevron in your wedding is to keep it to an accent rather than the main attraction as the zigzaggy pattern can tend to be a bit much for the eyes when overused.

Chevron is perfect for a modern-vintage theme. Pick a palette of colours and centre the chevron theme around those colours.

Nearly any way you can possibly think of! Clothing, accessories, decor, place settings, stationery, favours, the list is endless.

Our real life wedding couple James and Leah made perfect use of the chevron style, not allowing it to overwhelm, but complementing their colour choices.
