Trending: Fall Trends for Invitations

Hooray, hooray!!! Fall is almost here!!! I don’t know about you, but fall is by far my favorite time of year. Leaves changing color, cooler weather, and all the pumpkin spice lattes you can drink!!! I love fall weddings, love, love, love fall weddings. And lucky you, just in case you were confused on what’s hip in the world of fall paper trends, fear not!!!! Along with some help from some divas... some Wedding Paper Divas, we’re here to breakdown the 3 biggest trends of fall paper!! 

Color, color Everywhere.  I think your invitations are a time to really have fun, no boring invites allowed, we want color! Lots of color. The tones range from the traditional fall colors of orangey-reds, to lovely greens, and even have a lovely pop of bright jewel tones. Don’t be afraid of color, especially for a fall wedding!!

Watercolor Wonders. This could also be called flower frenzy. Nice warm colors, foliage and charming delicate flowers. The soft colors are unbelievably soft and so sweet. This is definitely the trend for the hopeless romantic. 

Vintage Charm. This is something I’m digging something fierce right now!! The vintage fonts and designs are beyond charming. They are downright romantic. This resurgence of vintage and classic style makes me absolutely giddy. And yes, if you’ve noticed these 3 trends most definitely overlap.

And super bonus, you can find all of the pictured invites at WeddingPaperDivas!!! Who’s excited?!?!?

Real Savannah Wedding: Towne and Andy Part 1-Ceremony

Towne and Andy’s early spring weddings is one of our favorite weddings we have had the pleasure of planning, designing and sharing in to date. You will see exactly why in these amazing images captured by Nate of Openlight Studio over the next few days. When I first spoke with Towne and Andy, they wanted a unique and eclectic wedding that reflected them as individuals and as a couple. There was really no color scheme but rather a celebration of all colors and textures. If we had to pin down a theme, I guess you could say it was eclectic garden. Their ceremony chairs were positioned in a circle with sheppard hooks of mason jars and ribbon down each aisle. Post ceremony the happy couple strolled around town in their personalized Pedi-cab before their arrival at Cha Bella! Tomorrow-Part 2: Portraits

Real Savannah Wedding: Leslie and Scott Part 3-Reception

Forsyth Park Wedding

Leslie and Scott chose to have their reception at the Mansion on Forsyth in their ballroom. Sometimes it is hard to work with the existing carpet and colors in a ballroom space, but with the fall colors, flowers, and bringing in rental chairs we think this wedding really looked amazing in such a grand ballroom! They named their tables after different types of wines, gave personalized cookies as favors and danced the night away to the tunes from a fabulous band.

Thank you Scott and Leslie for allowing us to be a part of this amazing time in your lives. It was truly an honor and we wish you many many MANY years of love and laughter.

How to do red on a bridal party without looking like Christmas vomited on them.

Okay, I am just gonna come out and say it, red rarely looks ah-mazing on a bridesmaid dress, especially when you throw on a black or even worse champagne sash. The popular fall/winter scheme of red and black is just juvenile! I mean, think about how dated white, red, and black is. It reminds me of my grandparents basement, for reals!! No bueno. There has been quite a few red bridesmaid dresses on the cat walk lately and I am really digging the look. I want to show you a few of my favorite gowns and to tell you how I would style it to feel fresh and unique.

The Dresses. All Left to Right.

Now here’s the thing, when picking shoes stay far away from black or beige or forest green or navy or white. Make it a sophisticated palette with sexy shimmer metallics. Think goldy, champagney, pewtery colors.  BUT NO CHAMPAGNE SASH. No sashes at all if you can help it. You want the shoes to be pretty and interesting, but at the same time very simple.


When it comes to colors to pair with it, I think keeping things warm is the best bet. Lots of oranges and yellows. I also dig a pale pink thrown in the mix. It’s all about finding colors that seem easy. Nothing too contrasting or bold. I think people assume because black goes with everything you should use it to accent your red wedding and that really isn’t the case. I mean these are all my own personal opinions which doesn’t mean that it’s the end-all be-all of wedding fashion... pretty close, but... there’s always an exception to every rule. Even my fashion rules. Shocking, I know.
