Wedding Prep with Minted
Ashley and I partnered with Minted to create our custom wedding invitations. The site is extremely user friendly and your one stop shop to covering all your wedding needs from engagement invites, save the dates, custom menus, program decor, thank you notes, and so on! Helping your guests understand your particular theme and vibe of the day can be very subjective, so we feel every detail through the planning process helps to share this vision. With the help of their exceptional independent designers and artists we were able to dictate things like font, colors, and edging to make the invites feel representative of us! An important factor for Ashley and I throughout this process is maintaining a consistent aesthetic across all activities and event materials so when the big day comes, there are no surprises. Everyone pretty much knows what to expect.
To begin the designing process, Ash and I perused the site until we came across a template we both fell in love with. Once that was selected, we entered the prose and began customizing everything from fonts, background colors, silhouette shapes, format, type of paper, and even printing- hello Foil-Pressed :). Our lovely designer was Kristie Kern from Ohio. We loved how chic all of her selections were. They just spoke to us. We decided upon the L’Opera Foil Pressed Wedding Invitation (here) in ‘Blush’. Ashley is absolutely in love with blush tones right now. She says our overall theme will be very soft toned, elegant, and ethereal. A modern day Gatsbyesque vibe if that makes sense at all.
Along with the Wedding Invites, we chose to add RSVP cards in the same format- again, to maintain a clean and consistent aesthetic- with white envelopes. For a final personal touch, we added custom mailing stamps to our order with our names in the same design and color as the invites. The Minted team was so lovely and added on a framed keepsake of our invites so that we can put up in our home once our Big Day comes. If you are looking for Premium Customer and design services, I highly recommend checking them out. With the immense options you are sure to find just what you’re looking for to complete your dream day.
