As we started thinking through the details of our wedding, it occurred to us that we’ve attended nearly 25 weddings over the years that we’ve been together.  Whereas we used to open up our mailbox to find stacks of wedding invitations, we’re now more likely to discover that a birth announcement has found its way to us in the mail. Regardless of the milestone, I’ve come to associate happy news with colorful cards, which is why I was thrilled when Minted invited me to explore their gorgeous website and design a few of my own.

As I quickly learned when browsing through images such as these on Minted and its adorable sister blog Julep, the opportunities to get inspired and be creative are truly endless. Even though we haven’t cemented a date for our wedding, I’m already thinking about ways to personalize our event and set the tone for a memorable celebration. In the meantime, I’m also scheming with friends to plan the ultimate bachelorette party, a festive occasion that will, of course, be commemorated with fun and girly invitations.

And because love is in the air, I’m also drawn to their Valentine’sDay card collection. Last year, I made my own cards, but this February, I’m ready to take things up a notch and I think that these may be the perfect way to send kisses to my friends and family all over the country in anticipation of seeing them on our big day.
