How to Create Your Save-the-Dates with Minted

Hello, hello! You have made it to (almost) the end of the week once again. Today, I’m sharing our save-the-dates with Minted! Another step checked off the never-ending wedding list…well almost. More details on that later.

We used Minted and had an amazing experience creating our save-the-dates! First of all, there are so many different samples to choose from and lots of formats. You can request a sample of the wedding stationary, which is so helpful in determining paper type, foil vs. non-foil, etc.

We ended up choosing the postcard, largely based on price. Wedding stationary is not an area I’m willing to spend a lot of money on, as I would much prefer to have extra donuts or craft beer!

Minted has so many options for save-the-dates and invitations, including foil-pressed and letter-pressed.

You can import any pictures you want on the card directly to Minted, making it easy to see how a sample would look with your desired photos before fully customizing it.  Once you select a design, it is very easy to change the font and the wording to fit your exact aesthetic and information! And, once the order is placed, it will be proofread by a member of the Minted team, ensuring that you don’t misspell a single thing.

The best part about using Minted is that they address the cards for you! We made the mistake of putting our guest list into Excel, without paying much attention to the formatting. If you know you will be using Minted or a similar service, do yourselves a favor and check what the acceptable formatting is prior to typing everything up! Luckily, Jarrett offered to type in our guest’s information while I cooked dinner one night 🙂

After approving the sample proof, we placed our order and the cards arrived within days. Well before the estimated arrival date. Sunday night, I stamped away and we had planned on sending the cards out Monday morning.

Do We Still Have a Wedding Venue?

Unfortunately, bright and early Monday, we received news that the barn at our wedding venue burned down Sunday night. Luckily, no one was injured and the rest of the property was largely spared. At this point, we are optimistic that we will still be able to have our wedding at the property, although we have not heard back from the venue. Please cross all of your fingers and send positive thoughts our way that thing works out!!

  • This is so timely since we’re just a few weeks away from ordering our save-the-dates! We’ve picked a design from Minted, too, and we’re having our engagement pictures done next weekend. 🙂 Yours are lovely, and I hope everything works out with your venue!!
