Wedding Season Is Right Around The Corner… Are You Ready?

Many of you may not know this because I never formally let y’all know (if you follow me on Instagram, you have already heard the news!), but my sister got engaged to the man of her dreams in September!

My Sister's Engagement Ring

This is her massive rock… I mean, engagement ring!

With only a year to the wedding (they’re getting married Labor Day weekend – September 5, 2015),  she got right down to business and starting planning her dream wedding right away! After the venue was booked, she found the perfect dress, and we had attended about 100 wedding expos and bridal trade shows, it was time to order one of the most important things for this amazing day… the save the dates and invitations.  When she was looking around a few different sites that are out there, she really liked all of the options that Minted had to offer.  It was the first site she found, so in an effort to keep her options open and see what else was out there, she kept looking around. But, despite her efforts, she found herself always coming back and gravitating to Minted and what they had to offer.  What did she do? She designed and ordered her Save the Dates from Minted, of course!

And the back…

With that checked off the to-do list and mailed out to everyone, now it is time for her to start thinking about invitations. Where will she order them from? While she initially was going to look around again (like she did with the Save the Dates), she decided, since last time she wasted so much time trying to rule out any other options, she is just going to stick with what she knows and order them from Minted! So, as she and I sat down to look for what she wanted to customize and order, she found three that she absolutely loved! So, now it is just making the final decision and placing the order. She really likes the foil-pressed options, as she feels like it just adds a little something to it. I have to agree with her on that one, the foil is just enough to add a little flare to her invitations without making them tacky or taking away from the chic simplicity of the options she is considering!

Here are the three that she is deciding between…

So, we’ll have to see which one she ends up deciding on, I’ll make sure to keep y’all posted!

Have you heard of Minted before now? Here’s a little about Minted and their wedding collection

Minted is an online “marketplace of independent artists”. What does that mean, exactly? Well, it means that they offer a variety of different products – including stationary, events/invitations, art, fabrics, and home decor – that are all designed by independent artists (the same idea as a contractor, if you will). This means that by shopping and purchasing items from Minted, you have access to a lot of specific items and designs that you would not otherwise have access to by shopping at a traditional retailer.  Are you sold yet? Check out all of the amazing things they have to offer by visiting their site!

Are you loving Minted and their amazing collection of wedding invitations (and everything else too, of course!) as much as my sister and I are? I hope you find it to be as awesome as we have! Have you ordered things from Minted before? Let us know what it is that you ordered and how much you love everything you got from them! Never used Minted before? Let us know your thoughts and what you’ve got your eyes on! I hope y’all have an amazing day, gorgeous!
