On Valentine’s Day I took a trip down my memory lane by looking at my wedding pictures. While I loved everything about my Mexican nuptials from start to finish, I realized that my destination wedding didn’t give me the chance to experience some of the basics of the whole wedding experience like cake tastings, wedding invitations and even a “real wedding dress.”

But nowadays with the invent of Pinterest, the concept of a “traditional wedding” is totally out the door for more creative, personal and inventive ideas, especially when it comes to wedding invitations and guest favors.
We’ll move over birds, bells, and big books of samples, brides-to-be are looking to stand out with unique invites that make an impression and on their own time. Minted, an online store for independent graphic artists to showcase their artistic invitation and announcement designs. While there are several classic selections, there are many options to portray the personalities of the brides and grooms.
Since I’m a dork for beautiful paper and designs, I had to take a peek at what “invitation” I would have chosen now if I had more of a typical wedding format then. (But let’s be honest, there’s nothing typical about my wedding.)
|Since we had a destination wedding, I loved this Destination Wedding “luggage tag” with the map.|
|Love, love, love Faraway Destination one with the postcard stamp!|
|Of course, I’d like this Mexican folk art design that already had
“Puerto Vallarta” on the sample.
|There’s something about this twine design that just captured
our personalities with a sophisticated retro look.
Best of all, you can choose the design, paper choice, coordinating RSVP cards, envelopes, thank you notes and more and at reasonable prices. And when the wedding is all over with and you’re ready to start planning for the birth of your first child and then later their birthday, minted is ready to help you make the choice that is perfect for you and your special day.
