This post was written in partnership with Minted.
We're suckers for a little bit of co-ordination.
We're not talking anything too matchy-matchy, (all pink everything is a tad dated!), but having a style and aesthetic to a wedding makes it look really cohesive, polished and pretty.
It instantly puts your guests at ease, and sets the tone for something really special. Which is why we're all about the co-ordinated stationery collections from Minted.
With styles to suit every kind of wedding (and every kind of couple!), you can pair everything from your save the dates to your table numbers, and even your very own (free!) wedding website – how cool is that!
In case you're not yet acquainted with Minted, it's an online wonderland of wedding stationery, with endless choices for your save the dates, wedding invitations, day-of paper goods, and pretty ideas to accessorise your day.
Minted’s unique (and gorgeous!) wedding designs are sourced from an independent community of artists, with customisable styles for every taste, whether your wedding will be rustic, modern, quirky or classic.
Selecting your wedding stationery with them could not be easier. Couples can work directly with Minted’s Wedding Perfection Team to change colours, fonts, and even to create custom elements.
Proofing is free, and all designs are fully customisable until they’re perfect (so no sleepless nights over your RSVP cards!)
Stress-Free Paper Planning
With serious attention to detail, you can style every element of your stationery, even down to your envelopes. Free calligraphy-inspired guest addressing will give your save the dates, invitations, or thank you cards an extra-special finish (and save you a lot of precious pre-wedding time, writing envelopes!).
And not forgetting the big day itself, Minted will make it a breeze, with free printing on place cards and table numbers, to match your stationery.
And as if all that sounded too good to be true, Minted not only promise consistent and reliable service and delivery, but their luxe printing and superior paper quality means not only a hassle-free process, but they'll look and feel as good in the flesh too.
And now with their very own wedding websites to complement many of the stationery styles, your entire wedding can have a professional finish to it.
Selecting Your Stationery Style
Wedding stationery sets the tone for your day, so whether it will be a fun time at the beach or plush celebration in the city, your stationery should reflect the vibe and help guests know what to expect from your wedding.
But with infinite styles and colour combinations to choose from, picking your paper goods can be a tough job!
To help you on your way, we've narrowed it down, with four of our favourite looks from Minted’s collection, just to show you how mixing and matching designs can help you achieve a beautiful, chic and cohesive look…
For a couple who likes things clean, crisp and elegant, white wedding stationery never goes out of style.
A classic look that will work in any setting or as part of any colour scheme, we love the idea of heavy white paper against a sea of pink roses or in an opulent city ballroom.
With luxe textures and beautiful black fonts, if your wedding look is fresh and modern, this is the stationery style for you – pair with touches of gold for amped-up opulence.
The new nautical weddings are all about fresh tones and preppy styling without being over-themed.
Stationery is the perfect place to start, with soft blues, sharp navys and cute Cape Cod details.
Whether you're getting married on a beach or in a yacht club, pair this versatile stationery style with driftwood textures, chic stripes or crisp white linens.
As the trend for all things Southwestern continues to grow, adding soft hues and geometric details to your stationery is a no-brainer.
Give the desert tones a luxe twist (it's your wedding, after all!) with gold touches, for paper goods that are equal parts rustic and romantic.
We love the idea of these blush and brown invitations and day-of goods for a chic ranch wedding, relaxed tented celebration or elegant barn bash.
Under the Stars
If you're planning an elegant evening affair, why not nod to the most romantic time of day with your wedding stationery.
Dark tones with a serious side of sparkle, these starry night sky-inspired stationery designs will bring a little touch of magic to your wedding.
Think rich burgundy, navy and black tones with gold, silver and copper embellishments.
Aren't they chic? I just love how the wedding websites tie in with the invitations, it's such a nice touch to give your wedding a unified, almost branded look and really make it really stand out.
So tell us, Crisp White, New Nautical, Under the Stars or Southwestern – which would be your wedding stationery style?
