Wedding Inspirations from Wedding Invitations

minted wedding ideas

Today I have some fun ideas to share with you all based around the Finally Wedding Invitations from our lovely sponsor, Minted. This invitation suite was designed by Oscar+Emma for Minted. :) For this post, I selected one of my favorite designs from their 2011 Wedding Collection and came up with some fun ideas on how you could bring this invitation to life. :) One of my favorite things about this invitation suite is the fun type treatments it uses, so I played around with those a bunch as well as the modern yellow + white palette.

I love the idea of creating custom wood blocks to spell out cute quotes for your wedding. These blocks are pretty easy to create and really brought the design together. I also love that you can keep these after the wedding to remember your wedding day always. :)

By keeping the palette simple with yellow + white it creates a super modern look. I used daffodils, yellow ranunculus and billy balls for the yellow centerpieces placed in mason jars spray painted white. The guests each would receive a yellow wooden heart as their favor with a tag that says, “you are all i need.” They also each have a cute YAY! flag at their place setting to wave throughout the day.

I love daffodils and they are so perfect for spring!

I hung fringe streamers as the backdrop in alternating yellow and white bands. The vinyl dunny on the right holds a fun sign and is the perfect unique guestbook for all your guests to sign.

Hopefully this shows you that inspiration really can come from anywhere – and if you find an invite you love – that just might be a perfect design idea if you are stuck for an idea! :) Be sure to check out more invitations from Minted and see if there is one that inspires you.

  9. I love the idea of spray painting the mason jars. Did you use a certain type of spray paint? I’m concerned that the paint won’t stick to the glass jars that I plan to use.

    Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!
