While every bride wants her wedding to be unique, there are some common patterns that show up everywhere. These can be used for save-the-dates, invitations, gifts for the bride and groom/wedding party/guests, nameplates or place cards, signage, etc. Damask patterns or crests are common as well as floral designs, the chevron pattern, and even an ombré design. Here are five patterns/elements that you can use (you can download some here):

  1. Damask
