1. Just as with makeup when it comes to using patterns, less is usually more. Using bold prints or patterns can be beautiful, but not if you have it on EVERYTHING. Be sure to use the print as an accent to bring out the other colors in your wedding.
2. Use your pattern as inspiration to help build your color palette. For example if your pattern is hunting camo (here in the South, that's pretty popular these days!) use colors that will compliment the camo pattern, like tans, greens, browns. Subtle colors that still match, but will make the pattern pop.
Here's an example of when using patterns go wrong.
4. Pick a pretty pattern; all prints are not created equal, if you're going to be bold, be sure to pick a palatable print.
5. Incorporate the pattern into your decor and pull the whole look together- the napkins or souvenirs are perfect places for you to get creative.
