No matter how you slice the cake love brings out the best in everything and while everything we’ve just mentioned is important to us, what brings us the most joy is getting to be a part of your special day.

Because we are so lucky to be a part of that special day, we thought we would thank you by sharing some of what we have learned about creating the most memorable wedding day moments.

Happy Birthday Minted!

This week we celebrate Minted’s 6th Anniversary! Aren’t birthdays the best? In celebration of our turning six, we are taking a moment to reflect on how far we have come, and the artists and designers who have taken this journey with us. The very best thing about how much we have grown over the last six years is having our community grow with us.

We’ve asked six fantastic Community Artists a few questions about their artistic style, how it has progressed since joining the Minted Artist Community and where they see their creative selves headed next.

Wedding Trends: Grace, Audrey and Bianca

By Celisse, Perfection Team at Minted

What do Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Bianca Jagger have in common?

Their striking individuality.

When I think about weddings, or my dream wedding, I get a bit nervous. Weddings, I think to myself, are supposed to be a certain way: traditional & formal. Right? Well, they certainly can be, but do they HAVE to be? Not at all. Just like Grace, Audrey and Bianca we are all uniquely our own. We too have our own tastes, styles, likes and dislikes. Our own favorite songs, flavors and flower and what I am learning is that you your wedding day doesn’t have to be anything but exactly what you hope it to be.

By Celisse, Perfection Team at Minted


With nearly impeccable collections that focus on dreamy and romantic extravagance and always strikes a classic cord, I thought it might be fun to gather some wedding invitation inspiration from Russian couture shopper turned couture fashion designer, Ulyana Sergeenko.

The essence of Sergeenko’s collections are woven into every detail of the Winter Flourish wedding invitation design. With it’s lovely script font and fanciful flourishes it  perfectly embodies Sergeenko’s textile elegance.

It’s almost as if Ulyana designed and typeset the invitation herself!
