Introducing Print-It-Yourself DIY Paper Projects
Minted now offers print-it-yourself invitations, RSVP cards, postcards, and day-of decor (table numbers, placecards, etc.)—downloadable files that give you unlimited use for $50! Talk about efficient. This is a great deal if you have a large guest list (and a small stationery budget). And the designs are just as swoon-worthy as their printed options. Check ’em out!
One of the coolest and most unique things about Minted is their variety of day-of paper products that coordinate to many different invitations and save-the-date suites. You can get your placecards, table numbers, and menus all in one place for a chic, coordinated look.
Free Time-Saving Services
Did you know that Minted offers free guest addressing on envelopes in calligraphy-inspired print? They can also print your guests’ names on placecards and table numbers, totally for free! These services can save you both time AND money. (And time is money, right? Especially when you’re working ’round the clock at your day job and on wedding DIYs.) The Minted Address Assistant lets you import your contacts and works across your wedding website and your printed products—how easy is that?
Another bonus: Minted offers free wedding websites that you can match to your stationery; manage your RSVPs online and save big bucks on postage.
What’s more, Minted’s Design Associates are available by phone, chat, and email to help you create the perfect suites, whether you’re looking for a coordinating design to complete your look, or you need a custom color or monogram—they can even help you design from scratch!
If you’re looking to save money in other ways, the team at Minted suggests thinking ahead about which stationery items are must-haves and nice-to-haves, where you want to invest a bit more, and where you want to save (e.g., is printing your invitations on letterpress non-negotiable? Then maybe go DIY with other items.).
As always, Minted offers a variety of unique wedding paper designs from an independent community of artists, so you can support those artists while also getting the best selection of designs out there. Minted’s focus is on customer satisfaction, so keep in mind that their products are fully customizable until they are PERFECT.

At the end of August, I left my job after accepting a position at a new company. Before I started the new job, I took a week off to relax, recharge, and get in some much needed time with my family in Pennsylvania.
And while I was there, I took advantage of my mom’s mad DIY skills and knocked a couple to-dos off my wedding chore list.
Ring Bearers’ Pillows
This is just my personal opinion, but I’m not a big fan of the overly lacy and bedazzled ring pillows you see in craft stores and online. They’re just a little too…froufrou for my tastes. So when I saw two rustic chic pillows at David’s Bridal, I pounced.
While I love the grounds of our venue, I always pictured it a little dressed up for the occasion. A backdrop is an easy way to achieve that, but there was no way I would be able to transport a triptych of distressed barn doors, 1,000 origami cranes, tangle-prone strips of crepe paper, or strung up coffee filters—no matter what Pinterest would have me believe.
In my browsing I had seen some simple but beautiful ceremony backdrops. Some pretty writing on a sheet of fabric would pack very easily into a suitcase and be relatively simple to set up as well. So I set out to emulate these backdrop inspirations, but with our own wedding aesthetic in mind.
So, I know I packed a lot of (over)information into my last post, but there are a few extra, overall tips for European travel that I learned on our honeymoon and wanted to share with you all. Without further ado:

When it comes to wedding planning, we as men usually pass the proverbial remote control to our wonderful ladies, but let’s be real—as a man we want our wedding day to be awesome! However, you shouldn’t expect your SO to want to be a part of it all every minute of every day. Most men have been to a wedding or two in their day, but most of us have NO IDEA how much planning is really involved. Here are a few things that Miss Sugar Cube did that really got me hooked into planning our day, along with a tip or two on how to keep him involved.
First, she makes it easy. Miss Sugar Cube knows me very well and knew that too much detail would send my head spinning, and not like it did the first time we kissed. So one of the very first things we did was sit down with a notepad and pen, and write out a list of everything that needed to be done in chronological order, under the months the tasks needed to be completed by, from last August until this November. This helped to break down what needed to be done now and what could wait. She also didn’t overwhelm me with a million choices, and she was ALWAYS open to my opinions and thoughts. Like whether we wanted an indoor or outdoor wedding. Together we would come to an agreement, and then, with a lot of the details, she would come to me and we would choose what we liked. Tip: Everyone loves crossing things off a list, so Miss Sugar Cube printed the list and made it so I could cross things off as we go.
