I think it’s easy to forget about how important beautiful day-of wedding items can be. Especially paper items. Well, I’m here with a story today that is not only going to melt your heart, but also illustrate why those wedding day paper items are so important.
A wonderful friend of mine just got married. WOOO! Congrats. She did her entire wedding stationary through Minted. She was really impressed with their customer service, product and well quality. I was all, duh.
But seriously, Amy is a very meticulous person, so it was amazing to see her happy with a company that was creating basically her wedding brand. And that’s what stationary sort of is, right?
Amy (I’m purposely omitting her husband’s name for a reason. He likes to stay off the grid.) ordered her programs from Minted. And I know you may be thinking right now that programs are glorified fans during the ceremony. But you’d be mistaken.
Not only were her programs a beautiful compliment to the wedding branding, but in the end, one special program became a canvas for a wish of love to the newlyweds. Amy’s husband’s six-year-old niece wrote them a poem on her program. Then she read it to them during the reception.
That shit brings a tear to my eye. Not only is it a beautiful moment of hope and two families really coming together, but it’s the beauty of having a wedding in the first place. The kids at weddings are what make weddings worth it. Over the years, those tiny hands, tiny feet at weddings are what it seems we end up talking about.
The poem reads: “Roses are red, violets are blue. Love is in the air and have a happy time too.”
I love paper goods. Like, love them. Clearly, Amy matched her suite. The menus, the invitations – she could have even done a minibook!
As it turns out, Minted makes really lovely place cards as well. She had a brunch so it wasn’t needed, but Minted did have a perfect match place card for Amy’s wedding brand. All of her paper would have been in perfect harmony. I love details like that.
What a beautiful touch.
Again, Amy was one seriously satisfied customer. It wasn’t until after I got her Save the Date that I called her up and told her I was thick as thieves with Minted. Then I started obsessing over all the stuff she was sending out. I was sad to return a regrets RSVP, but at least it was a beautiful one! And I drew a #peepee on it for good measure. I mean, c’mon, you don’t turn down a wedding and not draw a #peepee on the RSVP. Because, manners.
Happy wedding planning and may you end up with a gem like that poem.
