I love paper. I love letterpress. I love Minted.

I am SO excited about the launch of Minted's letterpress wedding invitations. They look and feel absolutely delicious. 

Pulling from their extensive indie-sourced design community, this collection oozes an artisan style that is undeniably fresh. I'm in love with so many of the designs. There is definitely something for everyone - and them some!

Here's a peek...

PaperFlowers 001A






I truly get weak in the knees browsing these handcrafted lovelies. Each with crisp, deep impressions on 100% cotton paper and a personality all their own. And to think you have the option to print these gems on their new Luxe Museum Board paper?!? Thick, thick and thick. (Literally, three sheets of paper fused together.) Gasp-worthy. Memorable. Unbendable. Luxury.

Minted is giving one lucky GetMarried reader $200 towards their wedding stationery purchase. YAHOO! LUCKY YOU! Just visit Minted and check out the entire collection and then come back and leave me a comment with the name of your fave!

I love when I find something that just screams my name and I can't stop thinking about it...and this week it was these ridiculously charming Long Distance Note Cards from Pear Tree Greetings. A-Dorable.

I get flashbacks of t-shirts my grandma would bring me from her random adventures around the country. While at the time, the t-shirts seemed too cliche and sometimes mundane (unless it had bubble letters, glitter or rainbows), I so have a soft spot now in my heart for them...and personally wish these cute cards came in t-shirts too!


But these note cards are perfect and made me instantly happy...so friends and family, you will soon be reminded that Somebody in Minnesota Loves You!

There is definite power in the flower this year.

As Claude Monet once said,

{ I must have flowers. Always and always. }

I am in OBSESSED with all of the flowers popping up across fashion, home decor and of course, weddings! From bold to ditsy to watercolor to bontanical. Fresh, flirty and fun!

I love fresh flowers but I also love paper so I am digging the concept of The Paper Flower Shop from West Elm.

Handcrafted from paper, these blooms make the perfect home, event or wedding accent...and they will never wilt!

It all started with this blue dress at Lili Salon and it's charming embellishments...

I could not believe that (a) these embellishments were actually hair accessories and (b) that they were made out of paper?!?

I instantly pictured a bride and her bridal party wearing these pieces - and I had to learn more!

So lucky...I had the pleasure of meeting the artist behind this wearable art. Sally Suby of Suby Paper Company was initially inspired by a trip to India and the exotic handmade papers she found there. Silk. Metallic. Floral.

Adding handmade cotton papers from Barcelona Spain, Sally created a line of wedding jewelry keeping the design modern and fresh yet deeply rooted in tradition.

Each piece is truly a labor of love as the handmade paper is painted, hand imprinted and then cut into circles or squares. Each circle or square is then hand painted to create individually frames petite mosaics.

The mosiacs are then threaded - often incorporating vintage beads (even heirloom wedding pearls!) to create this one-of-kind wearble art. Beautiful.

The hair acessories feature the handmade paper technique coupled with the most amazing combs and pins found in Paris. I absolutely adore these.

A fabulous gift...a unique bridal accent...and the most stunning everyday accessory. So happy to have found them!

Hey Foxy! Move over hedgehogs, could foxes be the new owls?!?!

Woodland creatures are definitely showing up everywhere this fall but it seems the fox may be the IT critter of furry friends this season.

American designer Tory Burch has fully embraced Mr. Fox as the sly little trickster dots everything from shoes to accessories to sweaters. Her velvet fox slippers had me at the grosgrain ribbon on the fox's ear heartPink...I couldn't wait to get my hands on these!

 Nothing sums up this trending little critter better than this line from the film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox:

Mrs. Fox: You know, you really are...fantastic.

Mr. Fox: I try.

Yes, Mr. Fox, I feel you are quite fantastic too!

Paper Source

Paper Source is one of THE best resources when exploring DIY options and inspiration for your wedding! 

I have been a regular at the Paper Source in Minneapolis for years and I seem to get lost in the best way possible every time I go in this shop. Everything is cool, beautiful and inspirational.

Needless to say, I adore this ColorScope. The colors are fab and the personality readings fun!

What color are you?

I am loving these cool wedding marketplaces popping up everywhere.

Here's my latest find - Fizz & Frills.

Super cute name aside...what an amazing event if you are anywhere near the Pasadena area and have some wedding shopping to-dos!?!

A place to shop from highly curated designers and artisans coupled with gourmet food tastings and fashions shows. Perfect.

This event is hosted by Utterly Engaged, an online magazine and produced by Lovely Jubilee, an event design & personal styling company - and the vendor list rocks!

This couple stamp is seriously cute. All of the rubber stamps are made from HANDMADE drawings and carvings based on a photo submitted.
