Your (amazing!) invitations should arrive in mailboxes six to eight weeks before your wedding, again allowing extra if guests will need to arrange time off and air travel. Set your RSVP date three to four weeks prior to your wedding so you’ll have time to follow up on missing responses before you have to give final numbers to your vendors. A great tip is to use an invisible ink UV pen to mark your response cards with numbers corresponding to your guest list. It’s common to receive back several RSVP’s with no name, and the number system allows you to identify the responders. The UV part keeps it all discreet and the envelope pristine.
See something you like but it’s not quite right? One of the best-kept secrets we never meant to be a secret is that Minted actually offers Design Customization Services for almost all of our products. You can have us customize things beyond the tools automatically provided to you within our interface. Work directly with a designer to change color schemes and fonts. You can even hire a designer from our community to create something from scratch. If you’re not sure about a detail or simply want a look you haven’t seen yet, feel free to contact us using the form on the link above and someone from our team of design professionals will respond to your request quickly.
If you are trying to manage the number of guests, put a tiny card that states, "We have reserved __ seats for you." This is a subtle and respectful way of lessening the headcount.
What better way to set the tone for your nuptials than with a truly unique wedding invitation? You want something that can’t be found at every wedding retailer across the web? Then choose a design that was crowdsourced from our community of independent designers and artists. Minted holds contests all year long to ensure that only the freshest and most stylish designs end up being produced and sold. This frequent rotation of art and design means you are guaranteed to find a one-of-a-kind look for your wedding stationery.
It might sound unpleasant, however it can be done. Various other pairs have chosen to just consist of the names of their birth parents, referencing their existing last names. That functions just as well.
What does every bride-to-be want in a wedding invitation? A high-quality product that matches the mood of the wedding. You are a unique bride and you deserve an equally unique design. With Minted, you can have it all. If quality is your top concern, Minted not only employs the best artisan printers but has custom paper created by our partners at Mohawk especially for premium printing. Our printers have mastered techniques such as letterpress, foil-pressed (otherwise known as foil stamped), digital printing, and gloss-pressed.
