LET'S GO....HOKIES! (and fall-themed invitations)

When a bride came to me a couple of years ago and said that she wanted her invitations to reflect fall and her love for Virginia Tech, I had a step-brothers moment and thought "Did we just become best friends??".  YEP! Being a Hokie alum, there are a few things that make my heart happy, in the fall specifically: college football and the leaves changing to the beautiful colors of orange & maroon. This week's featured invitation set combines both of these elements into one hokie invitation suite ;)  (Hokie in the good way).

PaperDolls-82The combination of orange, maroon, burlap, and kraft paper creates the perfect fall-themed, Hokie invitation set. Both the invitation and RSVP card have a matching leaf motif to reflect fall and my alma mater, Virginia Tech. For this invitation set, typography is used to create a rustic-chic vibe.

Finally, we cannot share the next few photos of this adorable invitation suite without paying homage towards the envelope liner. An envelope liner can provide a fun twist or an additional pattern to any invitation suite. Personally, I love the inclusion of an envelope liner to add a pop of color. I may be biased, but I absolutely love the subtle nod to Virginia Tech inside the liner (look closely at the repeated pattern).

PaperDolls-78-XLThe invitation suite is wrapped with an maroon-striped belly band and tied with a jute raffia and burlap tag with the couples' initials printed on Kraft paper.


The burlap tag is a fun and unique way to add a rustic-chic element to the invitation suite.

I try not to show favoritism towards any one suite, buttttt this one definitely stole a little piece of my hokie heart <3
