If you’ve been keeping up with my wedding posts over the past year and a half, you know that our Minted Wedding invitations were something that I obsessed over. I wanted something wintery and classic, yet also budget-friendly, and I absolutely wanted the entire package to feel luxe and on-theme. I ended up DIY’ing some of the actual wedding invitation suite, but I overall I was beyond happy with the design we chose from Minted Wedding and how it played out in all of the paper elements on our big day.
MINTED WEDDING FOR ALL OUR WEDDING PAPER GOODS
If you use Minted Wedding for any of the paper goods involved in your wedding day, chances are that design is available to use across the board. There are cohesive suites of wedding invitations, save-the-dates, websites, menus, programs, RSVP cards, and more. Literally, everything you can think of is there.
While I would have loved to have gone through a custom invitation designer, the cost wasn’t realistic, particularly for such a small wedding. Honestly, even using Minted wasn’t super budget friendly with only 21 invitations to send out (obviously the cost per piece decreases dramatically the more you order), but it was by far the best option for a custom and intentional look without the custom price tag.
THE DESIGN WE CHOSE FOR OUR WEDDING
The design we chose from Minted was Little Wreath by New Zealand designer Phrosne Ras. With a December wedding, it seemed obvious that we’d somehow incorporate an evergreen wreath motif into our wedding paper suite and gold and ivory was the obvious color palette given our wedding colors of ivory, gold, evergreen, and taupe.
Here’s a hint: I didn’t love the text layout that was shown in the example on Minted. In the customize tool, I got the design as close as I could to how I actually wanted it to look, and then I included a note for a Minted designer to make a change. At no extra cost, we went through several rounds and proofs to get it exactly how I wanted it. I did this not only for the invitation but for the RSVP cards, programs, and menus as well.
THE PIECES WE USED IN OUR WEDDING SUITE
So, what pieces did we use from Minted Wedding? Oh, where do I start…
The day of the wedding, we had both the program (we utilized front and back to describe all of the meaningful moments of our ceremony!) and the menu card (an obvious choice for a dinner party wedding).
We also used the favor stickers for the adorable Texas and Virginia sugar cookies that my mom made as favors (what’s the point in a wedding favor if it isn’t edible!?).
Had we really been feeling crazy (and had I not loved one of the other website designs), we could have even matched our wedding website to the wedding paper suite. I’m telling you the options are endless over at Minted Wedding and, trust me, they aren’t paying me to say this (believe me, I tried!).
