What are Chevron Stripes?
Chevron is a pattern name for a shape, pattern, or object in the form of a V.
The Chevron design style has been around since ancient times and can be found on rock carvings and pottery from as early as 1800 BC.
It's been used in Heraldry, as military rank insignia, and on road signs for ages. It's also the name of an energy company. If you're interested, you can learn more about the history of this pattern at wikipedia or at ecosalon.
Lately Chevron stripes have been showing up all over the place and they've become especially exciting on invitations. This chic zig-zag pattern pops whether it's being used as a border or background and in my opinion, choosing invites with these stripes is a sure fire way to let your guests know that there's fun in store at your upcoming occasion.
You'll find trendy Chevron invites in every color of the rainbow, for any occasion and they look elegant in a cute way, if you know what I mean.

The History of Bridal Showers
Did you know that the custom of throwing a bridal shower dates back to the time when dowries were popular? Friends of the woman to be wed began giving what is now known as a bridal shower to compensate women who came from poor families who couldn't afford a proper dowry, or for a woman whose father didn't approve of the marriage and refused to pay.
