Katie & Mike: A Minted wedding from start to finish!

We have a new little surprise this afternoon… we thought it would be fun for you to see a Minted couple through their wedding from start to finish.

Katie and Mike are our first couple in what will hopefully be a long tradition. Here is their Nostalgia Save the Date card by Emily Ranneby.

Isn’t the barn door that Katie and Mike took their engagement shoot against incredible? I also think black and white looks incredibly classy with this design. And what a good looking couple.

Their choice of Guess What?’s Contemporary Chic wedding invitation was perfect for their seaside wedding in East Falmouth, Massachusetts.

Inspiration Boards: Sundance Wildflowers

On this nice summer day, let’s take a little break from the countdown to enjoy J. Bartyn‘s Sundance Wildflowers Wedding Invitation.
Clockwise from upper left: Cake, Shoes, Bridesmaid, Pellegrino, Flowers, Bride & Groom

Isn’t there something just so perfectly appealing about getting married in a huge field? Doesn’t it seem to just make sense that you’d want all that open space around you as you take that leap of faith? I’ve always loved the idea of a long, farmhouse table in the field with dozens of people seating at benches alongside it. And I think the flowers, the Pellegrino, the little veil, that perfect light that comes only at dusk… it all just goes so well with the watercolor flowers. Simply dreamy.

Inspiration Board: Two Hats

In honor of the Pride Parade here in San Francisco last Sunday, we have Amanda Larsen‘s Two Hats.

Clockwise from top left: Hat and bowties, Place setting, Handsoaps in box, Wedding cake, Pattern, Men in suits, Drinks, Flowers

I’m so into hats right now… actually, I think everyone seems more open to the idea at this moment and the photo of the hat and bowties is stunning! As are the cocktails. I’ve always been a sucker for the classic black and white wedding combo. It’s so sophisticated! I love how this design has such a great vintage feel, but then is also so fresh and modern. And just so you know, if you’re a female completely taken with this design, it can be modified for a traditional marriage by swapping out one of the male hats for a female hat.

Inspiration Boards: Smart Conversation

To get you through Hump Day, we have Potts Design‘s Smart Conversation to give you a good laugh, or at the very least a smile.

From top, left to right: Sweets, Wood and stone wall, Wall of flowers, Jumping couple, Light installation, Tulips, Lanterns

Isn’t this invitation so refreshing? It really reflects an easy going, care free wedding, all about the couple and not at all about pretense.  Don’t you love orange with gray and white accents together? This is simply modernism at its best. And, yes, I do want to “see it live”!

Inspiration Boards: Heart Print

Proudly presenting Heart Print by Sweet Street Gals.


Clockwise from upper left: Red balloon with letter, She & Him album cover, Photobooth, Love letter locket, Dance Hall / Warm interior, Tree, Mini CocaCola

Do you ever find you just can’t get through your afternoon without venturing to the vending machine for a
Coke? Well then this board and the accompanying invite are for you. There is so much going on here, but yet it just works. Love the rustic lodge combined with the retro chic polka dots and the balloon with a message whimsically floating away. And in case you’re wondering, like I was, that envelope necklace is a real, working, vintage locket… but sadly it already sold.

Wedding Inspiration Board: Summer Lanterns

Our second board is Summer Lanterns by Design Lotus.

Left to right from top: Couple, Green shoes, Flowers and lights, Lanterns, Cake, Lit outdoor patio, Girl in yellow dress, Rings on branches, Brides bouquet

It simply could not be a more picture perfect day here in San Francisco so I thought Amy’s warm evening wedding was a good choice for this afternoon. I love that she was able to find a photo of perfectly matching lanterns. Have you been to or are you planning a wedding with lanterns? And don’t you love how mint green pops against yellows, oranges, and deep reds?

Wedding Inspiration Board: Better Together

The inspiration boards we asked our designers to submit along with their invitation designs were spectacular! We plan to launch them permanently on our site soon, but in the meantime I thought it might be fun for us all to ohh and ahh over them together.

First up is a relatively new Mintie: Rebecca Thongkham and her Better Together board.

I thought this was a fitting first inspiration board to feature–after all it highlights our beloved Minted green! And don’t you just love that glass milk bottle with the tied up cookies? If you end up picking Better Together for your wedding invites you better have cookies and milk instead of cake! I wouldn’t have thought to put green and gray together, but it really works here. Only issue is now I’m really craving a festive afternoon cupcake! Do you like this wedding as much as I do?! Do tell.
