Depending on the pattern you choose to incorporate, it has the power to bring so much to the table in terms of defining your style and adding some extra layers to your design. One of our current go-to patterns to do just that is polka dots. If you opt for a bolder pattern with larger dots, the vibe feels very retro (add bright lipstick and a birdcage veil too). In contrast, polka dots can also veer toward traditional if the pattern is limited to a single color (think white on white or Swiss dots).

If polka dots feel like the perfect fit for your wedding, check out the slideshow for our favorite spotted ideas.
