10 ways to use on-trend polka dots for your wedding day

It’s fair to say this pattern stood the test of time.


1. The dress

There’s no other way to start this list but with the bride’s dress. A polka dot wedding gown has a timeless look, but you can complement a classic pattern with a modern cut, such as this stunning, floaty gown.

2. The veil

If a hint of polka dots is what you’re after, then opt for a veil with a small and subtle pattern such as this one, which complements many a style of wedding dress.

How to wear polka dots without being too loud about it? Your undergarments! It could be your underwear, garter, or even your tights, making for a cute and unexpected surprise.

4. The shoes

We love how dainty and delicate these shoes look with a gentle polka netting and ankle strap. The style would be on point with a tea-length dress, a full-length gown, or anything in between.

5. The bridal party

Polka dots for the bridal party are particularly fitting for a retro-inspired wedding, paired with T-bar shoes, a birdcage headpiece, and a slick of red lipstick.

6. The groom

If you’re working polka dots into your entire wedding vision, then you mustn’t forget the groom. This classy black bowtie with barely-there polka dots is minimalist, smart and also understated.

8. The invitations

If you decide to use polka dots for your wedding stationery, less is more. You wouldn’t want your invitations to look more suitable for a kids’ party than a wedding.

9. The souvenirs

With a little extra thought and imagination, it’s possible to even weave polka dots into your wedding souvenirs. These mini dotted edible cakes will make for a perfect give-away.

10. The details

If we’ve learnt anything at all when it comes to weddings, it’s that the devil really is in the details. Not everyone might appreciate that you even sourced polka dot-patterned confetti toss packets – but a few might, and that’s enough!
