Real Wedding Wednesday: Mallory & Matt

Personalization is a huge trend in the wedding world! Mallory & Matt pulled this off flawlessly by incorporating adorable details about themselves as a couple in to their wedding day. They welcomed guests to their West Virginia wedding with goody bags filled with local snacks. They also said “cheers” with a signature drink: the moscow mule. We love these ideas and wish this sweet couple all the best! Thank you to Lisa Blume Photography for capturing the big day!

Pretty Paper: Menu Design

The best weddings are all in the details! One paper detail that’s often over looked is the menu! Your dinner menu plays a huge part in your table decor, and it can really pull a look together. One tip to remember is that your menu and day-of paper don’t have to match your invitation! It might reflect that design, but your menu should really play off your venue and table details like your center pieces! Sounds overwhelming? Don’t worry! Our trained Patchettes are ready to help you design the perfect menu for your table! Here’s a look at a few of our past designs, and there’s even more examples on our site’s gallery!

Mad Libs, Mad Fun

There’s nothing the Patchettes love more than a new, pretty paper idea! These trending, custom Mad Libs are the perfect example! The idea is to create your own Mad Libs, or even Crosswords, about the couple. Your guests will have a blast filling them in, and they’re just so darn cute! It’s time to get creative and start writing your own!

Your guests will be laughing all night!

Crosswords about the couple are another fun idea!

A great tip is to leave a basket of your Mad Libs in the cocktail area for guests!

Loving this idea? Well, the Patchettes can print all your paper needs! We’d love to help you write and design custom Mad Libs for your big day. Please make an appointment at our Tysons Corner showroom, today! You can also follow us on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter for more fun tips and tricks!

Confessions of a Customer

Paper is our passion, but we can’t create pretty paper without our customers! Their celebrations inspire us, and we live for their love stories. That’s why it means so much to us when customers take the time to share their experiences with The Dandelion Patch, even after the party is over! One of our beautiful brides, Leila Sidawy, was kind enough to send us these words, and we couldn’t help but share them: 

“The Dandelion Patch’s quality and service live up to your first impression. The Patchettes are an absolute delight and are extremely accommodating. My mom and I only had a faint idea of what we were looking for, so they really walked us through the process and the selections for customized collateral in-house products to coordinate with our gorgeous invitations we’d selected earlier in the process.We worked together to design escort cards, hashtag signs, the  dinner menu, and table numbers. Pure elegance! The Dandelion Patch design team is extremely talented.

I am as big of an online shopper as the next person, but for something as important as my wedding day, I knew I wanted personalized attention from a local boutique–and I recommend you do the same and work with The Dandelion Patch.

Thank you for everything you did for us!”

-Leila Sidawy

Leila’s wedding was so glamorous, and we loved seeing how her pretty paper fit the big day. Thank you Leila for letting us share your stunning wedding photos!
