Announcing the special prize winners of our Perfect Match Wedding Invitations Challenge! We look forward to our big, annual wedding invitation challenge every year and watch eagerly as more new, fresh designs show up every day.

Classic Award for the best classic, timeless design

Classically Stacked” by Ann Gardner 

Every once in a while, we see a design that is so classically, simply beautiful that we know it will truly be timeless. Ann’s “Classically Stacked” is just that. Her traditional black and white color palette, minimalist type, and large, neatly stacked names will never go out of style. An instant classic!


Emerald: Pantone’s Color of the Year

By Celisse Muller, Customer Care Lead at Minted

Hi Beautiful Brides to Be!

My name is Celisse and I am on the Customer Care Team here at Minted. My passion for and dedication to people is comparable to my boundless passion for style, adventure and curation. I am constantly on the hunt for striking images and inspiration and can’t wait to share them with you.

I was delighted to hear that Pantone had named one of my all-time favorite colors, Emerald, the color of 2013. It goes without saying that this rich hue is destined to work its way onto your color palette and into your magical wedding day. Below you will find just a few carefully curated images inspired by Pantone’s color of the year, Emerald, that bring to life a fantastic tale of love and adventure in marriage.

‘Chalkboard’ and ‘Darjeeling’ in Brides

We’re excited to say that our very own “Chalkboard” by Alethea and Ruth and “Darjeeling” by annie clark are featured in the October issue of Brides!

Rachel’s “Chalkboard” is sophisticated in black and white, while her chalk laurels and florals add a casual, friendly feeling to this wedding invite.

Don’t you just love how bright and bold “Darjeeling” is? We love Annie’s painterly strokes and playful flourishes.

Congratulations, Rachel and Annie!


Twine wedding invitation photo shoot with Ruffled.

We recently partnered with Ruffled, one of our very favorite wedding blogs, to style a shoot around Palm Paper’s Twine wedding invitation.

We were thrilled with the beautiful display the gals over at Ruffled came up with. I think you’ll agree that it’s nothing short of awe inspiring!

Their editors picked Twine from all of our new wedding invitations on offer.

We love how they added touches of black and white to the entire event. It really makes the pink pop!

It was fun to see how they styled our placecards. A note to brides: our talented customer service team is happy to create placecards to match any invites currently sold on the site. Sidenote: Isn’t it amazing how just one or two peonies in a vase creates such an impact?!

Isn’t this gold adorned plate awesome?

I love the juxtaposition of the uppercase narrow type with the calligrapher’s script.

Again, black and white ribbons around flowers and cutlery ties the invites into the tabletop.

I can’t get enough of these flowers!!

And this bride… such a whimsical, light and floaty dress.

Another fun idea from the shoot is tying ribbon around invite suites and thank you notes… such a special DIY touch. Thank you so much to Ruffled for showing us just how inspiring a minted invite can be. Check out all the photos from the shoot here.

Green Wedding Shoes wedding inspiration boards.

Earlier this year, Jen Campbell, the incredible tour de force behind Green Wedding Shoes, guest judged our Something Old, Something New wedding invitation challenge. We were hoping to bring in some more designs that reflected various cultures and religions, as well as worked well for destination weddings, and got some amazing entries! Jack and I put together some inspiration boards to go with Jen’s winning pick, as well as some of her other favorites from the challenge–all the quotes are hers. They were so pretty we just can’t help but share them below! The boards were recently posted on Green Wedding Shoes here.
