Straws and Stripes

After a brief unwanted hiatus, Miss Boa's back in wedding planning overdrive (Thanks IRS) with only 2 months to go before the big day. Realizing I have so little left has made me buckle down and start work on the details, the little things that will make our wedding us.Way back in June, in the beginning of wedding planning, I decided I wanted an common design element throughout the wedding, something that could serve as a theme of sorts.One of the first things I noticed on wedding blogs was the prominence of all things striped.This simple pattern inspired the background design for the wedding invitations and I knew I wanted to add more stripey goodness, which is why I'm very excited to incorporate two little wedding trends into my day.

The Boa invitations will be wrapped in some beautiful baker's twine like many a Bee before me ( Starfish, LobsterZebraCandy AppleMagicMole, Honey, Warbler and too many more to mention.) and we will be featuring some pretty striped straws with our brunch.

And now some pictures of striped wedding details from the Hive:

Are you jumping on a wedding trend bandwagon? Are you having a design element featured throughout the wedding?
