Whether you’ve lost or found your heart in Africa, this theme is definitely for you! Zebra stripes are as authentically African as, well, zebras – and décor designers around the world are turning this natural pattern on its head. Break away from the traditional wedding colours and elements, and add a dash of African spirit to your most beautiful day:

  • Add small touches of zebra print to your table décor. Think zebra print table runners, napkins or place cards.
  • Incorporate zebra print into your stationery designs. Even a small patch of zebra fabric can change the entire look of a simple invitation.
  • Give your bridesmaids’ outfits an authentic twist with zebra print shoes or a beautiful stylish clutch.
  • Keep an eye out for a bushveld venue where your guests might actually be able to spot a zebra or three roaming the area.
  • Wrap your candles in zebra print paper, or use zebra tiebacks to decorate the wedding chairs.
  • Surprise your guests with a marbled wedding cake that resembles the stripes of a zebra.
  • Instead of strictly employing stripes, choose a black and white colour scheme to keep it a little more formal and elegant.
