Have you heard of Minted? If you have, is it awesome? Why wasn’t Minted around when we got married in 2005?
I loved our wedding, but we were one of the first of our friends to get married, and I had absolutely no idea about wedding-related things. I had no one to ask. When my friends got engaged, they all asked me about vendors, etiquette, etc. It was actually after I got married that I got addicted to wedding websites and blogs, like Weddingbee.
I think our wedding was great and we had such an awesome time celebrating with our friends and family, but I really wished I would have looked around a little bit more to find vendors and elements that would more closely reflect us as a couple.
There are so many choices out there now. The wedding industry is huge! I am so amazed by the talent of anyone who is in this industry…so creative! Minted is in this category of amazing creative genius. I wanted to pop onto their site and choose a fabulous invite to show you, but it was so hard choosing. The wedding invitations are fresh, indie-designed invites. I would have loved to do something like this mini-book with the skinny-wrapped address label:
Look at all the different choices:
And here’s something I wouldn’t do for my own wedding, but I love the variety of the invites you can choose from. On this particular invitation, you can choose the Silhouette shape that you want for the card.
They also have cards for other occasions as well – baby shower, kids birthday, graduation, Father’s Day, and basically, any occasion you can think of. Minted also have journals, art prints, calendars, business cards, and party decor.
And another super fun thing on their website are the Inspiration Boards. You can create your own boards, or browse through others’ boards. If you are planning a wedding or another event soon, there are lots of great ideas here.
