A couple of weeks ago I got a package in the mail with no fewer than 15 invitation samples from Minted, and every single one of them was a treat to open. Minted has just launched 145 new wedding invitations, and each one comes with the option of adding coordinating details, like slide-in envelope liners, wrap-around envelope labels, and (my favorite) patterning on the back of the invites (appropriately called “backers”). Even better? The new suites are competitively priced, starting at $147 for 50 invitations.

One of the coolest things about Minted is their design community and design challenges – I was actually a guest judge for their very first wedding invitation design challenge! Independent designers from all over the world compete to have their designs carried by Minted – it’s such a great way to keep their assortment of styles fresh and unique. Whether you’re having a destination beach wedding or an urban black-tie affair or something in between, you’re bound to find a design that suits your wedding style.

To celebrate the launch of these stylish new designs, they’re offering free backers for the entire assortment of wedding invitations, as well as three free samples for those of you still in the earlier stages of planning. If you haven’t already, this is the perfect time to check out all the excited new things going on at Minted!

One of the wedding details that I’ve been thinking about lately is gift ideas for my bridesmaids. I want to give them something beautiful and useful. Something I’d be happy to receive. How about comfortable and eco-friendly, too. Enter Doie Designs. Their robes meet every one of those criteria, and I know because I own one and I love it (mine is white with silver bonsai trim and it’s lovely and comfy and I feel a little glamorous when I wear it).

Made of bamboo jersey, they feel like the softest, comfiest pajamas you’ve ever worn, and the 100% silk trim adds a luxurious pop of color. And I have to tell you, one of my favorite things about these robes is one of their most practical attributes: in addition to the outer silk tie, they have an interior tie so they won’t come off when you’re least expecting it. Brilliant. It gets even better: Doie Designs is giving Snippet & Ink readers 20% off your purchase of any of their eco-chic robes. Just enter Brides20 at checkout. I’m telling you, your bridesmaids will love getting one of these robes as a gift, and if they’re anything like me they won’t want to take them off – just make them promise to change into their bridesmaid dresses for the wedding.
