What I’m loving this season

Even though we’re just barely coming up on spring, I’m already thinking about fall - because that’s when all the invitations I’m designing are happening! PS - if you’re getting married in the fall, let’s chat! Now is the perfect time to get started on your wedding invitations.

I thought I’d share a few elements I’m loving for this year’s fall weddings!

Tone on tone. This is having a big moment with me right now, and I looove it. It’s understated, textural, and totally fresh feeling, and perfect for the warmer tones traditionally associated with a fall or winter wedding.

Transparency. Vellum has been having a moment with my clients for a while, and I don’t see it going away any time soon. I love the thought of raising the bar by using colored vellum, or printing patterns or washes on vellum to elevate it. While clear acrylic is still going strong also, I love the thought of playing with opacity by either adding color, or using other materials, like thin cloth, cloudy paper, or even layering inks using processes like screenprinting.

Bright colors. I think that many couples are moving away from the classic gold/white/blush look, and moving into more saturated and vibrant colors. I love the thought of combining this with tone on tone and having a super rich, vibrant suite.

Texture. I’ve been getting more requests for handmade paper (which I obviously love), and I can’t wait to explore textural elements even more, from things like acrylic, organic materials, folded paper, laser cutting, and fabrics!
