Attire

Add pops of leopard-print to the wedding-day attire worn by the bride, groom, bridesmaids and other wedding party members. Ask your seamstress to make a sash made of leopard-print fabric for your wedding dress, or wear a pair of leopard-print heels instead of traditional wedding shoes. Leopard-print accessories, such as pocket squares for the men and headbands for the women, would also help incorporate the animal print into your big day.

Linens

Table linens are another way to bring in leopard print to your wedding. For a dramatic statement, use leopard-print tablecloths on your reception tables. A slightly subtler look is achieved by using leopard-print runners over black tablecloths. Leopard print napkins are available for purchase online, or you can make your own if you know how to sew and can acquire leopard-print fabric, which is sold in some craft stores and online.

Favours

Guest favours can serve as treats for guests to take home as well as ways to decorate your reception tables. One way to incorporate a leopard print into the favours is to place items inside leopard-print favour boxes or bags. It is also possible to sew your own treat bags from leopard-print fabric. Sew two pieces together along the bottom and both sides of the fabric with the right sides of the fabric facing one another. Then flip the bag right side out, fill it with favours and secure it on top with a piece of ribbon.

Cake

Leopard-print details on your wedding cake would add a wow factor to your celebration. Talk with your baker about possible ways of incorporating a leopard print into the cake. Some possibilities may include coloured fondant "spots," airbrushing with stencils or using a cake transfer pattern. It would also be possible to use leopard-print cardboard or fabric between the tiers of the cake by wrapping it around the cake stand.
