Save the Dates might seem like an incidental when it comes to planning an entire wedding, but as the first impression your guests will have of your big day, it’s so worth putting a little thought and creativity into them.

And when paper goods are as pretty as Minted’s new 2015 collection, taking your Save the Dates to the next level is a whole lot easier than you might think.

Oh and did we mention that Minted are going to give one lucky BM reader $500 for a wedding stationery spree? Exciting, right? Read on to see how to enter!

If you’re not already familiar with Minted’s gorgeous invitations, Save the Dates and thank you cards (we spend a lot of time on there swooning and pinning), you’re in for a treat.

With the quality, customer service, and unique designs of a boutique stationer, but the choice, reliability and speed of a bigger collective, Minted is the best of both.

Working with a talented community of independent designers, Minted’s stationery is creative and stylish, with designs from the classic and elegant, to the whimsical and fun.

From postcards, to envelopes to photo cards, every last one of their creations is all kinds of pretty.

Fully customizable, with personalised images, text, and colours, you can fit their designs to match the look and feel of your wedding. Minted’s dedicated “Perfection Team” will tweak your design until you’re 100% in love.

You can choose your Save the Date design from one of their stunning stationery suits, or opt for something simple, if you’re still working out your wedding day style.

With premium services and top quality production, Minted offer a seriously luxury polish to their service.

Opulent finishing touches include real foil-pressed designs in gold, rose gold or silver, with die cut shapes and premium papers.

And for the final piece de resistance, Minted will include a matching envelope design with free calligraphy-inspired guest name printing.

Pretty sweet, don’t you agree?
