I know what you are thinking, gingham is not something you would think of for a wedding but…
I have been thinking of gingham for a wedding for over 2 years now. Two years ago I thought: “people are not ready for gingham, they will associate it to the Wizard of Oz”, so I moved on (although the idea remained in the back of my mind). Then Spring 2015 Fashion Week happened and I could not believe my eyes. Altuzarra, Bottega Veneta, Ralph Lauren, Diane von Furstenberg, and Oscar de la Renta (among others) showed their amazing gingham designs and I thought: “Jinny, they are finally ready!”
In my mind, this particular wedding takes place in a concrete loft (industrial look with gray hues). I see tables with gingham linens and crisp white runners and overlays. Mercury and milk glass accessories help bridge the romance and elegance of lace with the casual fun of gingham. Peonies, Jeanne Moreau garden roses, Silver Brunia and Dusty Miller on the tables. Elderflower white cosmopolitans as the signature drink. What a sight!
