Modern Inspiration

Last week I told you how I was drawn to rustic details-- barns, wood, and everything laid back. My husband to be, on the other hand, is the more modern type- clean lines, simple, and traditional.

So in the name of compromise, I started looking at some more modern inspiration, and I came across chevron details. Love! In bright colors they are fun and very modern, but in softer grays and pinks, they give a modern touch without being over the top. And, I loved the (small) military connection-- chevrons are placed on uniforms to denote rank.


I definitely want to have a chevron theme through the wedding to help keep it modern and fun-- starting with the save-the-dates and invitations. (More on my specific invites later, for now, lots of inspiration!)

I also want to incorporate chevrons on a few table displays. Having them on the main tables might be a bit much, but perhaps on the gift or cake table.

What do you think? Where else could we incorporate chevrons? What other modern details do you love?
