‘ALISON LOVES…’ SPOTLIGHT | Minted Stationery = Amazeballs. Help me choose my fave?

Happy Thursday to your beautiful faces, my darlings.  I’m kind of foaming at the mouth about this vendor so I’m just gonna hop right to it so you can catch the rabies-like excitement that’s going around this office apartment right now…

Oh, and I’m feeling especially gipperrrrr today because it’s kind of the nicest weather we’ve had in a gazillion years, and weather has this funny way of wholly determining my emotional state during that *special time* of the month.  Good times.  Good times!  Ahh-MAZING.

Ok, SO.  If you know me at all, you know I am obsessed with extremely amazeballs things within the wedding realm.  And that I don’t feature something unless I dig it, myself, and would indeed consider using it for my own wedding.  I don’t think I could STAND being a blogger if I wasn’t speaking exclusively about the stuff I love.

On that note, on a scale of one to seizing, I am having a personal dance party over my beloved Minted.  I must visit that place at least once a week, and probably more frequently now that we’ve started planning our wedding.  Just to see what’s new on stage in their modern wedding invitations arena and to check out the newest options within their save the date postcards, and y’know, just to play around in general with all of my fave designs and stuff and things and such and then some.  Visiting Minted is sort of like playing a game of Candyland with the kids you’re babysitting, except – and this is an important ‘except’ – you actually WANT to be there, playing the game, and you don’t want it to end because your eyes and mind are so happy just to be there, looking at all the exquisite eye candy.  The only drawback is you don’t get paid at the end of the night.  (I loved the game Candyland until I had to start playing it at the age of 16 with every baby I ever babysat, ever.  The only game that babysitting hasn’t ruined for me is Operation.)

ANYWHOSIT.  It’s obviously up to you what you choose, BUT, if I may be so bold…

Any faves?  Better yet… any recommendations for ME & HONEY?  No, seriously.  No, SERIOUSLY.  I cannot make decisions.  I have lost that ability.

    Damn I’m feeling gipper!! The weather in Philly is just as fanciful as NYC I expect! Worst day ever to be stuck at work! I loooooooove the eclectic and if your blogspeak is any indication of who you are, it just seems to fit you very well. But I also love in the garden so I think it depends on your venue. Will you be sharing venues with us?! I must know as I was very tempted to elope to NY for some of the fantastic venues up there.

  2. Casey Fatchett on March 8, 2012

    I like the classically modern, personally. Oh, the joys of wedding planning. I was there myself last year!

  3. Leah on March 8, 2012

    I think it will be easier to decide once you’ve picked the venue and time of day. That can really help you make this decision easier. I don’t know you personally so I don’t think I am a good candidate for weighing in on what you should pick. My only advice would be to go with the one you keep going back to.

  4. Mindy on March 8, 2012

    I agree with Leah! The invite should make people excited for the venue and the overall feel of your wedding celebration.

  5. Wendy on March 8, 2012

    Oh my GOSH! I was already in love with another invitation design until I saw your post. I absolutely love the Minted eclectic design. It’s so much fun! I think having 18 months to plan a wedding is probably not a good thing (for me) – I’m going to keep changing my mind as I see new things I love! How does one decide between all the goodies?!

  6. Jaf Gifts on March 8, 2012

    The one with turquoise theme is my personal favorite, and given the venue is in Mexico. That sounds a lot of fun!

  7. Lena on March 8, 2012

    GAH–they’re all so gorgeous! My favorites, in order:

    1. Chalkboard
    2. Mr Laurence
    3. Papel Picado
    4. Banner and Branches.

    But they’re all a little tied.

  8. Layla on March 9, 2012

    I really like the simplicity of the second set

  9. Nikki on March 9, 2012

    Chalkboard! No…Mr. Laurence. Actually I think Pink Blossoms. Oy I can’t help you…

  10. Ilana on March 9, 2012

    Oh man – those are all great! I think my favorite is Eclectic, though. Just beautiful. Love the post-mark-looking bit, and the layout is so organic and perfect. I wouldn’t be able to choose! Good thing I’ve already sent mine out or there might be some serious reconsidering going on.

  11. Videographer on March 10, 2012

    Wow! have to say very stylish!

  12. bridal girl on March 12, 2012

    Oooohh! This is so hard. Choosing is so difficult. The Chalkboard and the Classically Modern standout for me. Thanks for posting such lovely stationery.

  13. Kendra on March 12, 2012

    Love, Love Love, the eclectic!! I havent really seen anything like it

  14. Heather Barranco on March 13, 2012

    I think all of these are beautiful!!! They look homemade, rustic, and oh so unique. I love the Mexican one so much but you would have to keep that theme for the wedding otherwise it would not make sense. I always tend to be attracted to cultural wedding invites because we make a lot of Asian / Ethic wedding cakes.

    Classically Modern or Mr. Lawrence!!! <3
