A Minted Wedding Invitations Review (aka What We Honestly Think of the Competition…)

This is just a super honest review of my experience with Minted wedding invitations (ahem, the competition). This post is in no way sponsored by Minted, so I can give it to you 100% straight. As a small-scale wedding stationery company, we’re always getting emails from couples who want quality invites without blowing their entire wedding budget. We always do our best to stretch your budget the furthest, but even so, custom designs just aren’t in the cards for everyone. And although it might be considered “bad for business”, if you’re one of those couples, I want to refer you somewhere I know can meet your needs at a lower price point.
Before I started recommending Minted, I put ‘em through the ringer to make sure they live up to the hype and have a product that I would order if I were a bride.

3 EASY GO-TO WEDDING HAIRSTYLES

When I fantasize of love and romance I generally associate these thoughts with food and Paris. Here at T&H we all seem to share that notion, so we’ve based these easy go-to hairstyles for a wedding on our favorite Parisian pastries. Whether you’re a bridesmaid, maid of honor or just an attendee, these delectable hairstyles will get you through the night and take only minutes to perform. Bon appetite!
THE CROISSANT This easy go-to hairstyle may look the most complicated but is actually the easiest trick in the coiffe cookbook! It’s great to start with curled/wavy hair, and is an even more awesome way to curl wet hair without heat. Grab a decorative hairband with elastic and place it on your head like a crown for the princess you are.Begin tucking the hair into the band, rolling as you go. This does not have to be neat! Just shove it on in there until all of the hair is in a perfectly imperfect croissant like structure.Pin where the hair roll meets the head to secure it in place. Flu…
