There are so many events surrounding a wedding, and there’s no reason your feet can’t be just as stylish as the rest of you, especially with stunners like these from the ShoeMint collection, a collaboration of Rachel Bilson, Nicole Chavez, and Steve Madden.

Each impeccably crafted pair is made with premium materials (think real leather and suede). And with a totally affordable price tag (just $79.98 a pair), your wallet won’t suffer, even if you decide on a pair for your bachelorette party, and your bridal shower, and your rehearsal dinner…

Here’s how it works: When you first sign up with ShoeMint, you take a super short quiz so they can learn about your unique style. Each month, a new collection shows up in your online showroom, curated based on your personal taste and design preferences. If you see something you like, shipping is free. Returns are easy, too.

It gets even better! Right now, save 15% off your first pair of ShoeMint shoes with coupon code SNIPPET. Valid through May 31, 2012.

Milkmaid Press is the charming stationery company of my friend Kristen Nichols, and when she offered to design an invitation suite based on one of my inspiration boards, I couldn’t possibly say no! Imagine my surprise when she turned out a delightful design that works with a huge range of wedding styles, simply by customizing the color and backer pattern…

Board #467: Bold As Love with yellow floral.

Board #524: Southern Comfort with blue damask.

Board #556: Pretty in Peach with pink confetti.

Board #545: Romantic Early Spring with moss floral.

Board #490: Poppy & Mint with mint diagonal stripe.

Okay, as if I didn’t love it already, but then she went ahead and named it Kathryn. Which pretty much made my week! AND. Kristen is giving away a $250 gift certificate to FOUR lucky Snippet & Ink readers! Just leave a comment on this post with which Milkmaid Press design is your favorite. You have until Thursday, May 17th, 2012 at 5:00PM PDT to enter, and the randomly selected winners will be notified by email.

Each month I like to introduce some of the wonderful vendors who help to support this blog – without them, there would be no Snippet & Ink! I know that many of you subscribe to Snippet & Ink through RSS, so you don’t get to see the sponsors on the sidebar, so I thought I’d bring them to your attention, in the hope that you’ll discover a fabulous vendor that was just what you were looking for. Some of them are longtime sponsors, others are new, and they’re all just wonderful!
