Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today I am going be to sharing with you our Save the Dates with Minted. Our wedding is techinically a destination wedding and most of our guests are coming from out of town. Because of this we wanted to send out save the date to help our guests when making their travel plans. This helps for two reasons – it gives our guests the location and date of our wedding and also let’s them know our wedding website url so that they can stay updated with transportation and accomadation information.

Matt and I sat down together to figure out what we wanted from our save the dates. We had to decide if we wanted to use one of our engagement photos or not, if we wanted something more minimal, and if we wanted them to fit the same vision we have for our wedding day. After narrowing down all the options we finally came up with a minimal design and a photo that really showcased the beauty of New Orleans. We tried out several of our engagement photos but this gorgeous shot by Caitlin B. Photography was both mine and Matt’s favorite. I can’t wait to see what photos she is able to capture on our wedding day.
The best part of getting save the dates from Minted is that you can preview and customize your design. Another helpful feature is that they will address and put a return address on all of the invitations for you. I personally hate my hand writing and I did not want to hire a calligrapher for the save the dates. So the address printing ended up being the best option for us. This process was so easy and quick that I can’t wait to order our invitations from them as well. Honestly, I will take whatever I can get to make the wedding planning process easier.
