Vineyard Wedding Inspiration

At The Dandelion Patch, we love our Northern Virginia location! While there’s a variety of local venues, we’re lucky to have a TON of beautiful vineyards nearby. Let’s be honest – what’s better than a winery wedding? For any brides-to-be planning her big day at a local winery, we’re sharing a few tips today on how to utilize and decorate your venue. We hope you enjoy this post (with a big glass of wine in hand)!

Real Wedding Wednesday: Erica & John

If you’re planning a Charlottesville wedding, Pippin Hill Farm is THE location! We’re always in awe of the photos from this vineyard. Erica and John’s wedding, captured by the amazing Rachel May Photography, is no exception! We love the super classy barn (can you even call it a barn?) and breath-taking views. This couple is also a stunning duo, and they were such a joy to work with. We’re sure Amore Events by Cody had just as much fun working with this darling pair to plan the big day as our Patchettes did. Congrats to Erica and John!

Very Berry Bridesmaids

We are so excited that fall is just around the corner! Last Monday, we shared our favorite trendy bouquets for fall weddings. You can scroll down for that post, filled with cream chrysanthemums and red roses!

Today, we were inspired by those rich hues of autumn and decided to round up our favorite bridesmaid dresses for the changing seasons! Our favorite shades for fall are deep raspberry and plum. These look great on any skin tone, and berry shades are perfect for the transitioning weather. You’ll also love these looks if you’re planning a vineyard wedding at one of Northern Virginia’s local wineries, because they’re reminiscent of your favorite red wine.

Let your bouquets pop with a few lighter shades mixed in!

We hope you’ll consider these hues for your fall wedding! We certainly think they’d make for beautiful invitations too. To meet with our Patchettes, please make an appointment at our Tysons Corner showroom. You can also keep up with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
