Patch Palette: Urban Elegance in Black and Gold

It’s been a while since we’ve published a Patch Palette post, so today we’re bringing you some golden goodies! A wedding of moody, romantic washes of black with shiny sweeps of gold fits beautifully with the current time of the year as well – a perfect palette to accompany our transition into the more solemn, tranquil qualities of the wintertime. Metallic accents also surround the event with an essence of poised elegance, thereby transforming the otherwise dark, dreary atmosphere into a golden stitchwork of urban texture

Royalty and Romance

Crazy about Pippa! We’ve anticipated this wedding ever since Pippa made her stylish appearance in her sister Kate Middleton’s wedding. Pippa emerged on her wedding day wearing her gown designed by Giles Deacon with sweet lace cap sleeves, and the wedding world was instantly obsessed. Wearing a ballgown with short sleeves is the perfect way to wear a princess ballgown but not become overwhelmed in the summer heat on your special day. Whether you prefer a design with lace, glitz, or a little of both, there is a way for you to rock this trend this wedding season! Take a look below for some design inspiration. Covering up is the new sexy!

Instead of featuring lace sleeves, this design offers brides a more sparkly way to follow the trend.

This dress is a little more relaxed with a less full skirt and lace bodice.

Sheer back, glitzy buttons, and floral embroidery gives this dress everything a girl could dream of!

Confessions of a Customer: Danielle & Doug

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!”

Thank you Danielle for being a wonderful planner, bride, and friend to work with at The Dandelion Patch! We always love seeing your smiling face come through our front door!
