Minted Minted

Everyone is talking about The Great Gatsby these days (how could you not?!), so it feels like the perfect time to share this gorgeous customized invitation suite from Minted with you. It’s a beautiful example of how one bride, starting with the Ascot Chic invitations, used Minted‘s customization option to bring her Great Gatsby themed vision to life.

Minted Minted

After falling in love with Coralie Bickford-Smith’s cover of the classic novel, the bride asked the Perfection Team at Minted to customize her wedding place cards, menu, and program to match the theme while incorporating elements from her dream invitation.

Minted Minted

Using Minted‘s online screensharing tool, Perfection Live Studio, the bride was able to collaborate directly with her designer to see changes in real time, including custom color and design elements that matched the book cover inspiration. The result was a completely hand-tailored and fully coordinated invitation suite, from RSVP to menu to place cards. (Love these day-of details? Since they were all completely customized you won’t find them on the site, but contact Minted and they can customize them just for you!)
