Wedding Trend to Try: Swiss Dots

Said to have originated around 1750 in St. Gallen, Switzerland, delicate Dotted Swiss fabric (or, as it’s more commonly called, Swiss dots) adds a decidedly sweet and feminine feeling to a wedding, but it’s surprisingly versatile, too (pair a chic, solid column gown with a clean-lined dotted veil for a modern look, or go top-to-bottom in the adorable dots for a retro, ’50s feel).

And the dots don’t have to stop there. A runner with dotted borders feels fresh and new unfurled on a rustic, wooden table, and a minimalist cake covered in dots and nothing else puts a contemporary spin on the classic pattern. Here are a few ways to sprinkle Swiss dots into your special day, whether your taste is modern or Mid-century.
