2014 Minted Wedding Collection

December 30, 2013

Minted Wedding

I can’t believe 2014 is here. It’s time for a fresh start, new resolutions and, oh yeah… I’m getting married! With less than 10 months to go, it’s time for me to start thinking about sending Save-the-Dates.

In a twist of fate, the online stationery marketplace Minted reached out recently to ask if I could check out their wedding collection. There’s so much great stuff out there, you guys. And Minted makes the whole thing look easy. As a graphic designer, I’m really picky about stationery and paper products for our wedding (and everything else in life, really). But Minted is a design marketplace, which means that the products on the site are created and sold by a huge network of independent designers with their own talents and styles. There’s something for everyone.

In fact, once you’ve browsed the huge selection and settled on the perfect design, there’s even more ways to customize it. After adding your own names and photos, you can change the paper, shape and colors of most of the designs. Plus, Minted makes it easy to add backers, envelope liners and coordinating labels.

Save the Date Wedding Suite

I drafted this Save-the-Date suite up in just a few minutes with our engagement photos and wedding details (It’s the New Adventures design). Even with all the bells and whistles—a patterned backer, matching wrap-around return address labels, and a kraft paper envelope with a glittering gold liner—the grand total for 55 professionally designed cards is around $200.

With most designs in Minted’s wedding collection, you can follow up your Save-the-Date with coordinated Invitation suites and thank you notes. It’s like having your own custom stationer, but for way less cash.

The first step to gorgeous wedding paper is, of course, picking the perfect design. Here are a few of my favorite design suites for different personalities:
