Gingham evokes a sense of down-home comfort that translates perfectly for smaller celebrations. The no-fuss, quintessential vintage pattern adds instant charm to your rustic wedding.


Whether you’re serving up freshly baked strawberry pies or cutting into a three-tiered cake, a gingham ribbon can add an extra dose of sweetness to your desserts. For favors, top off your grandmother’s award-winning jam with a gingham-patterned fabric for a DIY-friendly adornment.

The best thing about gingham is that it looks great in both big and small doses. The bold pattern allows a little to go along way, so add a pop of the checked trend to your napkins or tie around mason jar centerpieces for a jubilee of textures and patterns. Don’t be afraid to mix with other motifs for a playful look — stripes, toile, paisleys and florals all blend harmoniously together with gingham. For a country chic statement, line your table with a table runner or cloth that gives nod to a casual summer soiree.

Whether you’re donning a picnic-inspired summer dress down the aisle, adding a touch of Southern style with accessories, or dressing your wedding party in casual chic, the Americana print is classic.

 Add it to your floral design as well with a touch of gingham to your groom’s boutonniere or your bouquet wrapped in the provincial pattern.

Gingham lends itself to DIY details. A simple stop at your local fabric store can churn out amazing accents, such as cake flags and banners, or add charm to a guest book vignette.
