It’s my favorite season. No contest.
Autumn is a popular time for weddings, which must mean that other people love this season as much as me. There are plenty of ideas for the bride and groom who want a traditional rustic wedding with pumpkins, s’mores, flannel and leaves. And those ideas are gorgeous!
But what if you want something a little unique? What if orange just ain’t your thang? Not to worry, I have inspiration for the Autumn wedding you’ve been searching for.
You can certainly get that fall feeling without going the traditional route. Plum or blood red/purple is a great color choice for Autumn bouquets and decor. It channels Halloween without being kitschy. Using rustic wooden tables with touches of gold and centerpieces full of flowers brings a little whimsy and glamour.
And don’t be afraid of greenery. The leaves may be bursting with bright and bold colors, but green is still very much a part of the Autumn palette. Marry earthy, natural elements with gilded candles or vintage Edison bulbs.
Whether you try a twist on the traditional or go all out with cider and classic colors, Autumn is a wonderful time for a wedding.
So he popped the question, you’ve popped the champagne and now it’s time to start planning.
If you’ve found yourself feeling a little lost on the way from “Yes!” To “I Do,” you’re not alone. Many brides have a hard time knowing exactly where to start.
In light of this, I’ve created a printable easy-to-follow guide for your wedding invitation suite.

From the engagement party to RSVPs to the post-ceremony Thank You cards, this guide has the answers. Print one out or pin it to your not-so-secret wedding board on Pinterest. (C’mon, you’ve had one for years!)
Most importantly, enjoy your engagement and remember to breathe! Your big day will be here before you know it!

Yes, I know. It’s Thursday. One of the best days after Friday. And Saturday. And Sunday…
So why am I doing a Moodboard Monday post? Because it’s #throwbackthursday of course. Don’t hashtags work on blogs?
Either way, this moodboard was one of my faves and I never got a chance to show it. The inspiration was for Kaitlin, a very lovely bride who will be married in less than two months (eek!).
She is getting married at a rustic inn in southern Indiana. A “bring your boots for the bonfire” wedding. Love it.
So with her guidance about her soon-to-be-hubby and their relationship, I came up with this moodboard for their big day.
I just love it. I can’t wait to see the actual wedding! While it is rustic, it’s also romantic. It’s about their love together and so there is a little bit of whimsy tied in with the wood and the countryside feel. And we all know that a little glitter never hurt anyone. And this was the final monogram.
So lovely. I’m even starting to feel like Thursdays may be even better than Friday.
Perhaps it’s not your first thought when you get engaged, but your wedding table layout is as important at the flowers, dress and cake (ok, maybe not the cake).
This modern banquet style is great for a larger venue. These tables can feel casual or elegant depending on the atmosphere. The length of the tables also allows more of your guests to sit together without obvious grouping or separation.
Flowers and centerpieces will likely be less costly with a rectangular table. Lining candles along the center and using a table runner plays up the symmetry and can be stunningly simple.
Round tables can be better for swapping seats and give guests a little more room. These tables also allow guests to chat without leaning over one another or feeling left out. There’s also less risk for bumping knees with the person across from you.
Each round table will likely only have one centerpiece, and circular tablecloths are often easier to come by. These tables tend to be more traditional and are great for a small wedding.
I sort of swoon over the longer tables myself. What about you?!
Calling all DC brides! I have a great resource to share with you today!
If you are planning a wedding in the DC area, you must check out District Weddings. This wonderful website has everything from wedding vendors to inspiration to real wedding features all based in the District.
District Weddings just recently rebranded and refreshed their website. It is GORG-eous.
I had the privilege of working with the Editor in Chief, Jeannette Tavares to create some beautiful new stationary to match their new look. I created a few pattern options that matched the look and feel of their new logo.
I absolutely love the gold and the blushing coral palette. Jeannette chose the lovely soft waves as the pattern for the back of the stationary. The front has the logo centered leaving plenty of room for Thank You’s and Your So Wonderful’s.
I think the stationary is absolutely amazing and is the perfect accompaniment to the new look of District Weddings. Can’t wait to see what else they have in store for those getting hitched in DC!
