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.

Snippet and Ink post: What type of bride are you?

Our creative team did such a brilliant job putting together inspiration boards for a recent sponsored post on Snippet & Ink, which by the way if you haven’t checked out this inspiring wedding blog, you simply must; Kathryn is beyond adorable and has the best eye! Her inspiration palettes are tops. The boards were a fun little series inspired by different types of brides: whimsical, rustic, classic, modern and elegant.

The chalkboard theme is such a fun one and what I love about this design by Alethea & Ruth is that it’s a little more subtle than most… and there are so many fun ways you can incorporate chalkboards into the event’s decor: placecards (as pictured), menus, signage, even favors.

Moglea’s design is a feast of pretty typefaces and the backer is the perfect rustic, fall color palette to work with. I love all the rich colors pulled out in the tabletop above right.

Ann Gardner’s invite is just so classy!! I love the idea of bringing in ivory and light peach florals with it. Adn isn’t that plaid backer just perfect?!

I know you wouldn’t think of it at first, but circles, inspired by Kimberly Fitzsimons’ design, are actually a motif in and off themselves. I love billy ball flowers–the perfect little yellow balls above–in fact I had them at my wedding so I may be a little biased. I also love the idea of doing some circle banners.

Again, I think it’s really nice to have a classy front to your invitation and then to have a more playful backer. Here, cheree berry’s chevron is pulled into a table runner and it’s just perfect!

I hope you enjoy these fun boards as much as the team enjoyed putting them together!

Barn Party! Wedding Inspiration Board

We are very excited to have Megan + Emily guest blog for us today. Megan + Emily of Enjoy Events Co. are wedding event planners who definitely have a penchant for cute wedding inspiration boards and ideas.

Hi Minted readers!

We – Megan + Emily of Enjoy Events Co. – are so thrilled to be guest posting over here at Minted today.  We have a very sweet inspiration board to share with you all.  We couldn’t think of anything more appropriate than using an inspiration board that we created around one of our couple’s barn party! wedding invitations.  We love to create beginning concepts for design (including color, texture and physical elements) around wedding invitations because we feel that it’s the first glimpse that your guests get into what your wedding day will feel like.  If the day is a reflection of that first piece then we are thrilled!

Martha Stewart wedding invitation ad.

Have y’all picked up the new Martha Stewart Weddings?

Whenever mine arrives, I literally walk in from the mail box, drop down right by the front door and devour it cover to cover. Anyways, this winter issue you’ll also see a new wedding invitations ad from Minted.
Aren’t the ornate frame, pink linen and that little jeweled pin at the top lovely? Pink, black and white are such a classic combo. If you’re interested in more pics from the shoot, you can check out my post my post about  the very cool styling session for it last fall with the insanely talented Victoria from SF Girl By Bay.

Town & Country Weddings photo shoot.

If you open up the latest issue of Town & Country Weddings, which hit newsstands yesterday, you’ll find this beautiful new Minted ad.

It is the first in a series of ads styled by famous bloggers. We were delighted to work with Victoria Smith of the always fascinating SF Girl by Bay. We have long marveled at how Victoria is able to find the the most unique and beautiful things and put them all together in an even more interesting way, which is exactly what she did for our shoot.

The Shoot was masterminded by these four lovely ladies: Victoria Smith, photo assistant Amber McKee, photographer Eva Kolenko, and designer Suzanne Shade.

The idea behind the shoot was to include Minted’s invites in a real life inspiration board collage. It’s what we think somebody as trendy as Victoria has as her personal bulletin board, without even trying!


In the end, the winning combination featured the Social Type‘s Love Struck and Annie Clark‘s Apple Blossom. Congratulations ladies on an excellent team effort! The ad is stunning and will hopefully let lots of new brides know about our great wedding offerings.

it was me, then the photo assistant, eva kolenko (the photogrpaher), and suzanne.  i don’t know the photo assistant’s name, but will ask suzanne.

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.
