Wedding Preparation 101 + Minted Credit Giveaway

Although it may not feel like it back on the east coast, spring is right around the corner and that typically means weddings, everything babies, graduations, and so on. This time last year I was knee deep in wedding planning and was attempting to pull this off in a six month time frame. I should also mention that I was teaching full time and juggling both responsibilities, which wasn’t an easy task.

Wedding Preparation 101: Save the Dates, Invitations, and other important prints

Let me set the scene…
My husband and I got engaged last October and were looking to have a June 2014 wedding in Las Vegas. We chose Vegas early on in our relationship as the perfect destination for our hypothetical wedding and were so excited to actually be planning it.

So, not only was this wedding date approaching quickly, it was also a destination wedding. This meant that we had to have our save the dates, official invitations, ceremony programs, and thank you cards ready to go meanwhile staying within our set budget.

How did we manage to get all of those equally important tasks done in enough time? Minted.

My husband let me take control over these details because he was busy calling the wedding salon in Vegas and making other big decisions such as our ceremony and music requests, choice of flowers, organizing the restaurant details, etc. You know, no big deal. Besides, creating these cards were effortless since Minted features many talented independent artists whose creations are exclusive to Minted.

Better yet, Minted provides you with FREE, yes free, recipient address printing, which I cannot even begin to describe how much time it saves. So, not only do you get the convenience of shopping online, but you also get professional quality prints for a great price.

If you’re one of the thousands of ladies preparing for your upcoming wedding this year I highly recommend using Minted for your all of your wedding print needs.

Here’s a peek at the newest wedding collections at Minted!

There are so many unique designs to choose from!
I’m loving their newest foil-pressed prints!

And for good measure, check out the Minted blog, julep, for cute DIY inspiration for your wedding!

  • He’s amazing and such a virgo which means he is all about the details and very organized. I was happy that he was just as involved into wedding planning as I was – definitely makes a difference. We are coming up to our first anniversary and have nothing planned yet but I look forward to planning something soon!!

  • Thanks! It’s hard for me not to find something I don’t like at Minted 🙂

  • yay! so fun! minted is so inspiring, and I love how they take submissions from anyone!!!

  • I agree! There has never been a design I didn’t love and I love that you can work with their creative team to customize it yourself. I just recently sent out New Years cards instead of Christmas cards (we missed the boat timing wise) and they turned out great!

  • I absolutely love Minted. My fiancé and I went through them for our Save the Dates and they came out amazing. I plan on going through them for our Invitations, as well. 🙂

    The giveaway isn't loading for me right now, so I'll have to come back later and enter, because this would be a huge help if I won!

  • That’s awesome to hear and I agree, Minted was a life saver for my husband and I. Plus it was such a huge relief to know that I could easily check these details off the massive “things to do” list 🙂

    Congrats on your engagement and good luck! I checked to make sure there’s nothing wacky going on with the giveaway and it seems to be working properly…thanks for the feedback! 🙂

  • that is so cool! way to roll with the punches!

  • No wedding in the near future but I love Minted designs and used them for my business cards! :]

  • I'm planning in 3 months all while working full-time and going to school full-time! We are on a tight budget and trying to get everything accomplished, but thankfully we have found some great vendors!

  • What an awesome giveaway!! I am getting married in September 2015 and this would be so helpful to save money 🙂

  • And that’s another reason I love Minted because they’re perfect for any occasion. I just recently used them for my New Years ‘Year In Review’ holiday cards since I missed sending out Christmas ones to our friends and family. There’s always a reason get get cute prints 😉

  • You are inspiring to get a wedding planned throughout everything you have going on! Where are you looking to get married? A spring/summer wedding will be so beautiful. I look forward to catching up with you!

  • Congrats on your engagement and soon-to-be wedding! An engagement is such a fun period and although the planning can sometimes be overwhelming, once the big day comes all of your hard work will seamlessly come together. I’m glad that this giveaway could be beneficial to you and your fiancé!

  • That is SO awesome that they print the recipient addresses! I'm getting married in November and have been researching Save the Dates and Invitations. I've been dreading having to write out all those addresses. Minted is a little more than the other sites I was looking into, but maybe it would be worth it for that! Plus, maybe I'll win the credit! Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

  • We are getting married in NC. Hopefully the weather will be nice by then 🙂

  • Printing the recipient addresses for free is huge!! My mom and I calligraphied all my invite's envelopes in one evening, and altho we had fun, it took so much time! Also minted has such pretty designs! So glad you posted this on the peony project post for the week! 🙂

  • NC is beautiful and spring time will be even more picturesque. You better share photos! 🙂

  • It's HUUUUGE life saver and not to mention, time saver. The calligraphy is beautifully written and it’s nice to have one tedious task taken off the list of things to get done. I also recommend investing in a rubber address stamp if you haven’t already. I also agree that Minted can get expensive quickly, even if you’re not purchasing anything wedding related. However, I see it as investing in a quality product that they get right the first time. I would pay for that convenience any day!
    And you’re quite welcome and good luck!!

  • That’s awesome! There is something to be said for handwritten invitations because, well, you don’t see it that often anymore. Plus it adds an intimate touch for your guests. Welcome, fellow peony! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my little blog 🙂 I’ll be sure to follow you as well!

  • I love, love, love Minted!

  • This is so cool 🙂 I got engaged in December and wedding planning is EXPENSIVE.

  • I absolutely love Minted! They are such a great company, and I love that they collaborate with artists around the country to create new products!

  • No boyfriend and no wedding in sight, but I'm entering this giveaway because the design quality is amazing! Can't believe I've never heard of Minted before!!

  • That’s alright! It’s not a prerequisite to be married or getting married to enjoy Minted! I’m glad you’ve discovered it! I’ve used it for my wedding, moving announcements, and just recently a New Years holiday card 🙂

  • YES IT IS. There’s no way around the expense of it all and I know just the printed materials alone can cost you so much out of your wedding budget.

  • Thank you so much Kelly 🙂
