We’re looking for someone to join our sales team… is it you?! Or maybe someone you know?
Sales Position: Looking for someone who is dependable, driven, cheerful, and organized. Preferably a blog reader with a sophisticated sense of style, sales experience, familiarity with the wedding industry, and basic WordPress and Photoshop skills.

Talk about timing! I scheduled this fun feature, only to learn that the venue had abruptly closed its doors, leaving hundreds of couples out of their deposits – or for some the full balance! – and without a venue. What a wedding nightmare! My heart just breaks for all of those couples who are affected, and I was reminded of my sister’s and friend‘s respective weddings that were impacted by the flooding in Colorado last year, and I know that wedding vendors really rallied and helped to save tons of weddings in those weeks. Looking at my Twitter feed, it’s obvious that the same is happening here, with incredibly generous and talented people offering their services at hugely discounted rates to the couples left in the lurch by reBar’s sudden closing.
In an effort to help, we’ll be updating this post with the names and contact info of those vendors here, and if there’s anyone I missed, please leave your info in the comments. And if you aren’t a vendor but you still want to help, there’s an Indiegogo campaignset up to help couples afford a new wedding, as well as a Give Forward page to help the employees of reBar who are left without a paycheck.
Did you know that Minted has a collection of totally delightful and affordable wall art prints? They’re available in every size from postcard to poster, plus you have the option to choose from seven types of frames (including reclaimed barn wood!). And right now they have a really special promotion going on for Mother’s Day…
When I was at Alt Summit earlier this year, I had the chance to meet Christy Turlington Burns, and to hear about Every Mother Counts, a program she founded with the aim of making pregnancy and childbirth safer for women around the world. I learned that 287,000 women die each year as a result of complications in pregnancy and childbirth, that the United States ranks 50th in maternal mortality, and that 90% of all these deaths are preventable. As a mother, this campaign really resonates with me, and why I think it’s so awesome that Minted supports EMC by donating 2% of the proceeds from all art print sales. Even better? For Mother’s Day, Minted will donate 20% of the proceeds from art prints when you use the code SNIPPETEMC.
If you’re ordering custom art Mother’s Day gifts, order today (4/28) to get it in time with ground shipping. (For all other Mother’s Day orders, check out the holiday shipping calendar.) And remember to use the promo code SNIPPETEMC so that 20% of the proceeds will go to supporting a really amazing cause.
Minted is a sponsor of Snippet & Ink. All opinions expressed herein are my own.
Snippet & Ink Select is finally here! After nearly six years of fielding emails from readers asking for our vendor recommendations, we’ve made it official with a guide of some of our all-time favorites. We’ve decided to call it “Snippet & Ink Select” because each vendor has been handpicked – they are the vendors we would recommend to our sisters and our best friends, and who we know will make your wedding day as magical as possible.
The best thing about Snippet & Ink Select? Not only are these wedding vendors Snippet & Ink approved, but unlike other vendor guides, we limit the number of vendors listed in each section. We know how overwhelming wedding planning can be, so our goal is to make the process easier by highlighting just a handful of amazing wedding professionals.
