From skinny white pinstripes to big fat bands of color, stripes are currently enjoying something of a revival in the wedding world, and while they’re definitely not a new trend, we love them all the same!  If you’re looking to include a stripe or two in your wedding day, here are some of our favorite ways to incorporate them.

Classic black and white stripes add a touch of whimsy to an otherwise plain envelope liner while ombre stripes kill two trends with one stone.

If you’re looking for a subtler option, this white on white striped number from Hayley Paige does the trick. Or you could add a striped blazer or cover up to your ensemble instead.

We think everything, from your tent to your linens, and all the little details in between, can benefit from the stripe treatment. Just make sure to pair them with solid colored elements so as not overwhelm the eye.
