Well, readers, the knot is tied! It all went SO well, and we enjoyed every minute. Much more to share once we get our pictures back from the photographers, of course!
One of the things I CAN’T WAIT to do as newlyweds is send out our own Christmas cards. I am of the belief that a really nice photo card is the only way to go. I mean, if you’re going to pay for stamps and spend the time to find addresses and send them, then you should back up all that work with a card you love, right? I most enjoy getting photo cards in the mail, and I always hang them up for a month or two. We will likely use some wedding photos once we get them back, but it’s not too early to start peeking at card designs, no?
We will be using Minted, of course. If you don’t already know, Minted is a stationery company that offers designs from independent designers all over the world. Through the genius of their Design Challenge concept, anyone can submit a design, and the community votes to determine which designs will be sold.
This means that your design is truly unique, since there are TONS of choices. We used Minted for our wedding website and also for our wedding programs, and not only did they arrive in only a week (which was key since I remembered that we needed programs about two weeks before the wedding — oops), they were gorgeous and printed on a nice heavy cardstock.
