On July 2nd my husband and I FINALLY got to have our wedding that we have been planning for over two years. I’ve shared some pictures over on Instagram but I want to go over some of the details of the wedding here. I ordered all of my wedding paper items from Minted because of their timeliness, quality, and customer service.
For save the dates, we knew we wanted to use one of our engagement photos while still keeping it simple. We decided on the Elegant Space Save the Dates in the petite size, on the smooth signature paper.
For our invitations, we wanted something simple and elegant. For this we ordered the Simplicity Wedding Invitations in 5″x7″ on the pearlescent finish paper. Lucky for us, these invitations were still available for the second round of invitations.
Like most couples that had plans to marry in 2020, we had to postpone our wedding. We ordered these postponement notices on standard paper in the petite size.
For all the save the dates, invitations, and the postponements we opted for address printing on the envelopes which saved us a lot of time (plus I don’t have nice penmanship). Thankfully Minted has free recipient addressing on envelopes.
Another thing that saved us a lot of time and effort is having return address stickers. I ordered the return address stickers from Zazzle. They also reinforced sealing the envelopes.
Back when we sent our our save the dates, Minted offered custom postage stamps. Fortunately we ordered enough for the save the dates, 1st round of invites, postponements, 2nd round of invites, and thank you cards. They no longer offer this but I believe you can create custom postage through USPS.
For our Thank You Cards we ordered these. We knew we wanted to use a wedding photo on the thank you cards so we made sure to ask our photographer in advance to send us a sneak peak of photos that we could use for thank you cards.
You will notice on the save the dates, invites, and postponement notices that we refer to a wedding website. We setup our website through the Knot, and I HIGHLY recommend having a wedding website. This came in handy when we postponed. It’s almost a necessity when you have a destination wedding because you will have tons of information to rely to your guests and it’s nice to have it all in one place that they can access from anywhere at anytime.
