Becoming a Pattern

Becoming a Pattern

January 4, 2010  |  In Her Shoebox  | 

Valerie Metrejean, owner of Southern Fete in Lafayette, La., Butterscotch Pressand The Wedding Shoebox, brings her brides a unique experience by providing custom design work. The wedding planner can run a clean theme seamlessly from invitations and programs, to favors and decor.


Yellow and grey has always been so clean and modern to me. It was really popular in 2009 but some have predicted this palette to be one of the biggest of 2010. So how do we keep it fresh? There’s something about finding a great pattern that makes me stop dead in my tracks. I could plan 5 weddings in yellow and grey and transform them with great patterns.


I’ve never been the type to go too matchy-matchy. I love the contrast between the masculine stripes and argyle paired with ornate flourishs. And I had to include grey suits. I have a slight obsession them. They are so sharp yet relaxed.
