Now that we’ve started pulling our boots and tights out of our storage units, we’re all about fall. So we asked Heidi Kallett of the Dandelion Patch, a stationery store with locations in Vienna, Leesburg, Reston, and Georgetown (you might remember her from our Vendor Q&A last week) to share the latest trends in fall wedding invitations.
“For fall, we’re seeing lots of nature-themed invitations, using images of trees, leaves, mountains—and lots of peacocks,” says Kallett. “We’re also seeing couples mix and match patterns like stripes, florals, and checks, all in the same design.”
She also listed monochromatic styles (think two tones of purple), heavyweight paper with hand-painted edging, diecut envelopes and invitations, and personalized envelope liners as other big trends.
The hot stationery colors this fall? “Copper, deep purple, and jewel tones,” says Kallett.
Some of her favorite fall invitations are shown above.
