Right now: chevron as a theme for your wedding. Chevron, better known as zig zag pattern is totally hip.
It is printed on almost everything from fashion to interior items, and so it is also entirely in order to use it as a wedding theme. It is a modern way to bring a little color to the wedding. But even if you do not like color, you can use chevron by combining white and black or white and gray. From quiet classic to hip colorful - you can go in any direction with it.

There are plenty of ways to process chevron in your day. For example, think of:

  • the invitations
  • the menu cards
  • the give aways
  • the dresses of the bridesmaids
  • the wedding cake
  • the tie of the groom
  • a table or ceremony runner
  • wedding backdrop (the background where the ceremony takes place)

Below are some examples of what is possible. Be inspired and give your own twist! Lots of fun!

TIP: Google 'free printables chevron' and see what's free to download on the internet. For example, at 'Wedding Chicks' you can download a whole set for free, with which you can make invitations, menu cards, RSVP cards and thank you cards with the chevron theme.
