My husband and I were married 8 years ago this past January. I wasn’t much into Wedding planning, I just wanted to be married! My wedding was nice, thanks to my Mother and family working hard to make sure it was, but I really didn’t put very much thought into it. I know what you’re thinking, that’s crazy! Well, I was in my senior year of college, about to graduate and then start Grad School, I just wasn’t fancy wedding minded.
But, let me tell you, thanks to the social media and reality tv world we live in now, I would definitely do things a little differently if we were to have our wedding this year or the next. My friends and I have talked about this and we all feel the same way – especially about colors and pictures. I would definitely be using sites like Minted.com. They have the most beautiful invitations, announcement templates and even have these idea boards. Look at some of these:
I love, love, love that dress. Isn’t it just stunning? And this is the perfect color scheme for a June wedding.
How about this for an August Wedding? The muted yellow and floral accents on those invitations make for the perfect details. Think of all of the fun lemon food and drinks you could serve. I would have a big sign above my drink station, filled with lemonade of course, that said “Pucker Up” – how cute would that be?
I had red bridesmaids dresses and while I think they were beautiful, if I had it to do over again, I would go for plum bridesmaid dresses and have my wedding at a time of year where I could have it outside, in the evening. For beautiful pictures, you just can’t beat natural, evening light. I would have lots of mason jars, burlap and fresh floral arrangements.
I would definitely use these invitations, I just love them so much!
Which of these design boards do you love? And if you are getting married, make sure you use Minted, you won’t be disappointed!
