Subtle summer.

I, of course, love it I we see Minted invites anywhere… (especially) in our mailbox, on friend’s refrigerators, on my mom’s mantle and on my favorite blogs.

Make Minted Wedding Invitations Look DIY Fabulous

We were so thrilled that one of our own design associates, Janet Paik, helped to make one of our Minted customers’ wedding invitation look fabulous! Janet was close friends with this bride and consulted her friend about her wedding invitations from a graphic designer’s perspective.  The bride ordered the Happy Couple Wedding Invitation in Spring Leaf designed by r. studio.  She wanted to add a special touch to her invitations but wasn’t sure exactly how to go about doing  it.

How to: Orange Blossom Ink DIY Wedding Programs

I thought you might all be curious as to how some of the awesome entries in our DIY Wedding Program Challenge were created… brides, especially, might want to re-create their handiwork… so we’ll be posting about a few of them in the days to come. Also be sure to check out picture slide shows of all the entries on our wedding program how-to guide where you can also download wedding program templates for your DIY wedding programs.

Orange Blossom Ink‘s Cocktail Hour Wedding Program Entry was a runner-up.


Program Challenge: Winners Announced!

Remember just how excited we were about our new wedding programs? Well, we were equally excited about all of the great DIY wedding program entries. Now we know just how hard it is for all of our guest judges to choose their favorites! Thank goodness we do crowdsource almost all of our designs because the pressure is just too much for one person to handle. While we polled much of our office to come up with our final winners, you should definitely check out the other submissions for more wedding program ideas and inspiration! If you’re thinking of doing something fun and personal with your programs, be sure to check out our step by step DIY wedding program guide and download our wedding program templates.

So without further ado, our grand prize goes to Moglea, who also happens to be a minted designer (although that had no influence on her winning.) Congratulations Meg Gleason! We can’t wait to hear what you do with your $1,000 prize!
