We’re excited to announce the special prize winners of our To Have and To Hold Wedding Invitation Challenge! In this challenge we asked you to show us your freshest take on the classic wedding invitation, with original designs that engaged couples can’t find anywhere else. We were beyond wowed with everyone’s take on fresh modern designs! The designs below are the best in show for our special prize categories. Congratulations, winners!
The Trifecta Award based on the strength of submissions to this challenge: Phrosné Ras
We selected one designer to receive guaranteed placement in email, catalog,
and a homepage banner to help build his or her brand on Minted.
Featuring: “Amazing Watercolor” | “Gold Portrait” | “Dainty Deco” | “The Wedding Bouquet” | “Enchanting Plum“
Phrosné continues to perfectly execute bold and striking designs. She is a pro at delicate layering, and soft symmetric water-colors. Phrosné’s masterpieces pop against subtle backgrounds. Her compositions are often classic and elegant, but she’s not afraid to add a splash of dramatic boldness. Phrosné says, “making things beautiful – it truly feeds my soul.” We see this throughout her entire collection. We’re so grateful to have Phrosné in our community!
Collection Award for the designer who is guaranteed at least five total picks across the challenge and other wedding challenges: Lori Wemple
Featuring: “Organic” | “Jardin” | “Floral Crown” | “Swoon” | “Monogram Floral“
Lori’s submissions blew us away: she consistently crafts designs with intricate detail, striking typefaces, and well-chosen copy. Lori sprinkles subtle visual details throughout her pieces that add to the overall look without feeling crowded. She evokes a sense of fluidity throughout her work. We’re absolutely thrilled to have your work on Minted!
Enduring Elegance Award for the design that best sets the state for a sophisticated
elegant event while still being fresh and modern
“Garden Flourish” by Kelly Schmidt
Garden flourish brings a clean yet rustic feel to an elegant wedding invitation. The curvilinear design and airy typeface of this piece remind us of a warm breeze on a beautiful summer day. The text below contrasts the swirls with formal block lettering and a clear, functional space for type. This design truly flourishes!
Runners Up: “Gilt” by Lauren Chism | “Sabrina” by Olivia Kanaley | “Elegant Marble” by Wind-Up Key Press | “A Golden Date” by Susan Brown
