Choosing save the dates can be challenging, especially when you know it is the first item your wedding guests will see for your big day. I first went to the Minted website and fell in love with so many designs. Minted has various designers with diverse selections to ensure every couple finds the perfect save the date. I was torn between having multiple pictures on the front of the save the date or just having one picture on the front. We ended up choosing a save the date that had one picture on the front with a collage of pictures on the back, along with text for details. We also wanted a save the date that had gold foil on the front of our cards because we will have touches of gold incorporated in our wedding day, which is something Minted offers for many of their designs. The Minted gold foil is absolutely stunning and adds the perfect touch to every card.
I love how user friendly the Minted website is, it makes ordering invitations simple and easy. Once you choose the design you want, you can then customize your save the dates by choosing the card size, the quantity, the photo layout, whether you want to add gold foil text or not, the colors, the silhouette shape, the format, and paper type. Minted has so many beautiful paper types, including smooth signature, signature, recycled, pearlescent, doublethick, and triplethick. We chose the smooth signature paper and love the quality of the paper. You can also choose to print the artist’s mark on the back of your save the date to support the independent designer for your particular card. Once you choose all of your options, you can them customize your names, add your wedding date, add your wedding location, and anything else you may want to add to your save the dates. You then customize the back of your save the dates by leaving them blank, adding a design, adding pictures, or adding text with details. We chose to add a picture collage with our wedding website below. After customizing your save the dates, you then get to customize your envelopes by choosing white, speckletone kraft, or silver envelopes. You can also choose to add envelope liners to match your design. Next is my favorite part about the entire Minted process, it is honestly amazing… they will print all of your recipient addresses on your envelopes FOR FREE! Yes, you read that right, all for free. You can also choose to add your return address on all of the envelopes for $65 and custom stamps for an additional fee as well. Finally, you upload all of your addresses (I added mine by uploading an Excel sheet) and they do the rest for you, so simple and easy!
Once you have your save the dates personalized to your liking, you pay for your cards and wait for your proof to be sent to your email. A designer will look over your design and make suggestions for minor edits to ensure your cards are flawlessly printed. I received my proof in less than 24 hours and appreciated the edits my designer suggested. We then received our save the dates the following week and absolutely love everything about our cards!
