So far you’ve heard the engagement story.
Seen the venue.
Engagement pictures are done!
Had a fabulous engagement party thrown by my aunt.
I have so many things check off the list including my dress and I FINALLY picked the bridesmaids dresses. I was stuck between the eventual winners and these infinity dresses. I was going back and forth and couldn’t decide. In the end I had to put it to a vote with the bridesmaids! I swear that was harder than finding my dress (which was actually a dream to find). I’m happy with our decision though.
The next thing on my task was our Save the Dates. I did a lot of research and found Minted had the best reviews. Mark was really set on magnets and I couldn’t agree more. I still have all the magnets on my fridge from Weddings over the past few years. Since Mark and I both went to Florida and the majority of our guest list we knew from Florida the picture we picked out was pretty special to us.
I cannot speak enough praises about Minted. They have an address book that you put all your contacts into aka you have to make your guest list and get that headcount early. The best part is they print the addresses on the front of the envelopes for FREE. One less thing you have to worry about. There was so many styles and formats to choose from with the Save the Dates magnets. I found the style I liked, uploaded my picture from our engagement session and played around with the font placement for a while. Once I got it where I liked the proof was sent over and their design team spiffed it all up and sent it back for final approval. I cannot be happier with the finished product!
They are a 4 x 6 magnet, the same size as a standard picture. The magnets are heavy and the quality of the picture and writing on them was excellent. I was blown away with how they came out. I got my mother a stamp from etsy with their return address. It all came together beautifully.
How the addresses come printed (I had to white out the full address but you get the idea). The envelopes were thick card stock.
