Take a step outside the box and rock a boutonniere that’s all about your style. From exotic flowers to miniature guitars, pretty much anything can be used to create a one-of-a-kind lapel accent.

I love a good chevron pattern. Orderly little zigzags that somehow turn whimsical in pastels. Here are a few great chevron wedding details I found while getting completely sucked into the Etsy wormhole.

Use these sweet little hearts to decorate Mason jars or to sprinkle around the base of your centerpieces.
Decorate your guest book table with a fun bouquet of chevron pinwheels.
Found: Perfect personalized wedding gift!
Save-the-dates in my all-time favorite color combo: aqua and cherry.
Particularly great for a nautical or military-inspired wedding, use this as your ring pillow.
I’m not going to lie to you, I love myself a girly ruffle. And it seems to me that there is no better time for pulling out the pretty than right around your wedding. Whether you’re adding a ruffled necklace to your shower outfit, decking your bridesmaids out in these killer peony dresses from Quail Bridal or adding a ruffle-y heel to your wedding dress, it’s a feminine way to let the world know here comes the bride.

Nothing feels quite as classic and cheerful as a navy and yellow combo. Slightly nautical, but not necessarily so much that you want to yell, “Ahoy, matey!” this combo goes well across all seasons. And this also gives you an excuse to use yellow button mums in your floral arrangements (I can’t help it–I am obsessed with them).

Generally recognized as a symbol of good luck, many brides are integrating feathers into their weddings. If you like this idea, add small touches to avoid looking like a Mardi Gras gone awry. The only exception is, of course, if you are actually having a Mardi Gras themed reception (as shown in the feather centerpieces above).
Especially if you are sticking to a white or pale color palette, small feathers can add interesting texture to bouquets. If you are going with bolder colors, such as red or black, incorporate them into hair accessories or shoes.
