If you’ve spent more than 30 seconds on my site, you know that I’m married. And it’s true. I’m wife to this stud.

With nuptials EST. 2008, our wedded bliss started almost two full years before the launch of … Pinterest. Oh, how I daydream of a Pinterest wedding. So many decorations and dress options left to explore. But I’m going somewhere with this …

So in those first 30 seconds you spent here, you likely noticed something else. I’m on a mint kick. From freshly minted mom to freshly minted marriage, the mint lingo abounds. I’ve even started a Pinterest board to catalog my minty faves. So it felt meant to be when I had the opportunity to review products from the beautiful minted.com, including their gorgeous wedding invitations.

To be honest, I kinda dropped the ball on our wedding invites. I designed them myself and really should have gone to the professionals, or at least done a few samples before printing the full batch. Lesson learned, and we moved on. But the designs available from minted are seriously stunning! And each design is completely customizable because minted is a community of independent artists, not a traditional retailer. Grab some mint milanos—you know I’m eating mine—and take a gander at a few of my favorite designs. Hmm I wonder what wedding dress I’ll wear to go with each theme? 😉

invite 5

Ahh, I’m nostalgic for vintage attire and sweet lemonade.

invite 4

This storybook invite needs a fairytale dress. Any references for a good fairy godmother?

invite 3

Reception in “the old barn” huh? Better wear my cowboy boots under that fancy dress!

invite 1

Simple & sweet. Reminds me of my own backyard wedding and classic sweetheart dress.

invite 2

I love the romance of this design. Elegant yet soft.

Not only are these designs beautiful, but the print quality is top-notch. I ordered a sample pack just to feel these beauties in all their luxe cotton paper glory (get yours free).

I will say that the museum board invite felt too thick to me, and I’d be worried about its travel-ability. My favorite stock was the elegance of letterpress on 100% cotton, but the shimmery foil-pressed design came in at a close second. Oh, and did I mention that minted will address your envelopes for free?! Talk about a timesaver!

Before you think I’ve gone off the rails and am presently planning a wedding do-over, I have to tell you about some of my other minted faves. I could *did* spend hours on their blog, julep (clever, right?!), browsing pretty pictures and DIY for baby showers and home decor.

Rebecca Minkoff Baby Shower

I love the color choices from designer Rebecca Minkoff’s baby shower—and may snag a few ideas for the next shower I throw.

 

Minted designers or “minties” also offer baby shower invites, bunting banners, stationary, notebook sets, and party decor. And we must not forget the children’s decor prints. Each one customizable!

 I love his glasses!

sweet dreams room decor signs

Such a sweet sign for a little girl’s room.

With women making up 90% of minties—and many of them also moms—it’s great to know these cute purchases support other creative women.
