Inspirations – The Polka Dot Wedding

Lately I have been quite inspired by dots.  Many of my wedding invitation designs feature a subtle painted dot here or there but recently I have been fascinated with an elegant and innovative use of the dot concept.  Recently I created an invitation ensemble for Loan that featured nearly 150 dots per invitation completely hand-painted in various swirl patterns.  The look, while quite detailed was sophisticated and dynamic.  How else can dots be incorporated into a wedding celebration without looking too cutesy or typically whimsical?  This was my question and here is what I discovered!

Brightly colored soda bottles with cap labels – imagine a large display of these – definitely some dot impact there!  Simple dot confetti could be the perfect detail to stuff in save the date envelopes or sprinkle on a reception table.  Princess Lasserton’s hand-crafted felt bouquets certainly capture the polka dot vibe with each button detail she uses.  A simple satin gown peppered with tiny dots – so pretty!

I have always loved a simple do treatment on wedding cakes.  The look says classic, understated and elegant.  A polka dot ring pillow – how perfect and take note of the 6 pink stick outline dots – love this detail!  Paloma’s napkin rings could also function as  a fun photobooth backdrop – imagine hundreds of these strung together – wow!  And lastly, simply white round lanterns – need I say more?
