Hi guys! As soon as Pat and I had decided we wanted a small, intimate ceremony and reception in the Dominican, our families had said we should have some kind of celebration back home in Pittsburgh where Pat and I grew up. It would be a fun way to get all of our family members and friends together to really celebrate the commitment Pat and I made and to celebrate us! I am always down for a gathering so we began planning it right away. It’s going to be a big outdoor picnic with lots of games, good bbq, cold beers and drinks, and of course a DJ! My mom insisted- she can break it down you guys! Anyways, Pat and I come from super large families and so we are just too excited to get everyone together in the same space. I am just desperately hoping the weather is beautiful and it doesn’t rain! Fingers crossed for me, okay?!
I wanted to share our wedding announcements / picnic reception invitations because once again, Minted did it again. I say this because I was absolutely in love with our Save the Dates (you can see them in this post here) and I am obsessed with these little invites now too! Minted is a one stop shop for anything design related- they have independent designers that create invitations, stationary, announcements, artwork etc. It’s really cool that you are selecting someone’s design and employing their work right there and then! I love that!
Gold foil anything has been super trendy lately. I knew I wanted to go with something simple and pretty so I chose the “Nougat Foil Pressed Engagement Party” invitations by Chocomocacino. Everything is super easy to customize and move around. You can literally design what you need to design in a matter of a few minutes. It took me twice as long to decide on a design and what images to use than to type it all out and customize it!
What do you think of our stamps?! Our little Ruby on them- how freaking cute?! I had so many people call and text me to say how cute the stamps were and to RSVP that way instead of responding through our Minted Wedding website! 🙂 It didn’t bother me, the stamps are super, super cute and I was happy to hear from some family and friends!
If you have any big events coming up or even when you go to make your Christmas cards- I would keep Minted in mind. I love how easy it is to order, how many choices there are and I especially love you are choosing artists from all over the world that love what they do! They enter their designs to Minted each month and compete to make it to sell their designs- super cool!
Thanks for stopping by!
