Mad for Plaid Wedding

As the weather cools and fireplaces begin to light up, few things say cozy like a warm plaid. Plaid can be a beautiful way to incorporate multiple colors into your wedding theme.

Here are four ways you can use plaid in your wedding.

Groom – The groom’s tuxedo vest is an obvious choice for plaid. But if that just seems too formal, why not try a more relaxed plaid shirt under a coordinated sport coat? 

A plaid tie and pocket square are another option for the groom.

Attendants – These bridesmaids look stunning in their red and black plaid dresses. Red plaid would look terrific for winter weddings ranging from the holidays through Valentine’s Day.

Bouquet  - While some brides may want to add a plaid sash or even have a plaid dress, most want to stick with a solid white dress. Trying a plaid ribbon around the bouquet is a wonderful option for having the bride incorporate plaid into the wedding day look. 

Table Setting – A wool plaid blanket doubles as a tablecloth for this rustic holiday table setting. Keeping the candles and arrangements simple helps call attention to the plaid, and keeps the table from looking busy. 

Plaid immediately creates an inviting sense of warmth. If you or your fiancé have a family tartan, that would be meaningful print for your wedding. However, any plaid in your favorite color scheme can work for a plaid wedding.

Which plaid wedding ideas would you use?
