Theme Thursday: Travel Back in Time

Hello everybody!

It’s Theme Thursday again and today’s theme is the 1920s! Take your guests back to the days of fantastic entertainment, great music, and, sadly, prohibition! The 20s had a really awesome aesthetic and this theme will make for a wonderful wedding! Who knows, maybe Leonardo DiCaprio will even make an appearance!

First off, make sure your guests know prohibition won’t actually be a part of your wedding!

Real Wedding Wednesday: Sean & Claudia

Sean and Claudia’s Real Wedding was pretty in pastels! We’re a huge fan of the mismatched bridesmaid dresses and Claudia’s lace gown. With Kelley Cannon Events planning at one of our favorite venues, The National Museum of Women in the Arts, we knew this wedding would be magic! A HUGE thank you goes to our dear friend and amazing photographer Abby Grace for these breath-taking shots from the big day!

If you’re planning a fall wedding, you’ll definitely want to include this traditional beverage. From apple cider cocktails to donuts, your guests will love this super sweet treat!

Confessions of a Customer: Meredith & Patrick

Meredith and Patrick had a stunning wedding at the Stone Manor Country Club in Middletown, Maryland. They were also the sweetest couple to work with! Even better, we were able to coordinate our efforts with the help of wedding planner extraordinaire, Jeannette Tavares from EVOKE.

When asked about her wedding paper journey, Meredith told us “before coming to The Dandelion Patch I was overwhelmed by the options and didn’t know where to start. After spending just two hours with the Patchettes, we had essentially completed the invitation suite. It was so much easier than I imagined and I’m so thankful we were able to enjoy the experience too! The professionalism and timeliness of The Patch made this a completely stress-free decision… something that’s hard to come by in the wedding planning process!”

We are so happy that we have been able to be a part of Meredith’s wedding, and we are thrilled that photographer Eli Turner expertly captured her day!

These sweethearts have such bubbly personalities, and they really let that carry over to their planning.

Today’s “Confessions of a Customer” features Danielle Couick, the principal planner of Magnolia Bluebird Design & Events. As a professional in the wedding industry, we were absolutely thrilled that Danielle selected The Dandelion Patch for her pretty paper. We also knew this would be an unforgettable wedding with a planner for the bride, and she did not disappoint!

Danielle shared, “With so many incredible invitation designs available, I wanted something custom that really reflected my fiance and I. The ladies at The Dandelion Patch helped me create and design my vision perfectly. I could not have loved the invitation any more! We loved the font so much we carried it through to all of our day of details!”

Real Wedding Wednesday: Caitlin & Greg

The day Caitlin and Greg’s wedding invitations arrived at The Dandelion Patch was a big day! We’re talking rose gold foil and hydrangea envelope liners. We fell in love!

The next best thing to receiving this pretty paper was viewing Lindsay Fauver’s beautiful photos from Caitlin and Greg’s Georgetown wedding! This classic wedding included simple, white bouquets and family photos on every table. Our favorite shots of the couple feature romantic glances in front of the Lincoln Memorial where Greg actually proposed to Caitlin. How sweet!
