Recently, we've noticed festive polka dots popping up everywhere—on the fashion runways, on kids' clothing, and even at weddings. We love the idea of incorporating gold polka dots as a wedding motif—they're sophisticated and festive, but also convey a sense of whimsy and playfulness. We've put together a few of our favorite wedding style details featuring the motif. —Heather Lee and Mallory Toombs

1) Wedding invitation designed by the bride Kate Allen; calligraphy by Plurabelle Calligraphy
Love the smattering of gold foil polka dots on this letterpress-printed invitation.

2) Carla Caruso ring
A simple-yet-mod take on a wedding band.

3) Luisa Galuppo wedding cake
The middle tier of this elegant, shimmery cake is studded with tiny edible pearls.

4) Kate Spade "Twirl" perfume
Gift your bridesmaids with a bottle of this pretty perfume (the fragrance is inspired by French macaron cookies!).

5) Flower girl attire by J.Crew
Instead of a basic beribboned white dress, outfit your flower girl in this dotted-top-and-skirt-combo (which she can easily re-wear).
