We all know the checkerboard pattern in black and white. And you may have already seen some wedding decor inspired by this motif. But throw in the edgy chic vibe of Louis Vuitton’s checkerboard design revival, plus bright, bold yellow—and you have a fresh, fashion-inspired graphic peg for a modern and fashionable wedding!
Check out the fab images we found. And if you dare to join this styling game for your own wedding, now it’s your turn to make your move!
1 – This hot ad for Louis Vuitton’s checkerboard line actually sparked the inspiration for the entire mood board. Moreover, how can you resist those shoes? With touches of this pattern here and there, what a style statement you’ll make!
2 – Love this little black dress from Ann Taylor! How chic would your bridesmaids be in this look, perhaps with white orchid or calla lily bouquets with yellow ribbons?
3 – Use trendy table settings to showcase the overall color scheme of black, white and yellow. A stunning example is this modern tabletop decor from a fabulous real wedding reception.
4 – With The Great Gatsby film all the rage now, yellow cocktails are apparently the ‘in’ choice for your signature drink! Think of cocktails made with lemon, grapefruit, or pineapple based concoctions and make your own signature wedding drink.
5 – Your bridal bouquet should have that contemporary feel as well. Large yellow orchids accented with black feathers and a satin ribbon wrap result in this stylish bouquet.
6 – No sweet and frilly wedding cake in this scene. We couldn’t have found a more perfect match for our motif than this chic creation as part of a lovely styled shoot.
7 – Your place cards offer a great chance to bring in the checkerboard squares. And if you tip them over a bit, you even get a playful harlequin effect—as in these chic printable cards!
8 – Why not have the groom sport ‘in theme’ cuff links, too! Such a cool memento of this special day each time he wears them afterwards. Check out these David Donahue ones we just adore.
