Remember the save the date contest Minted held a while back? Well, the winners have been announced, and now a bunch of them are finally up for sale! I had a chance during the Stationery Show to meet some of the talented designers and see the new designs…its hard to pick just one!

We thought really long and hard about gifts for our bridal party and parents, and this is what we came up with.
For our parents, we got Jessica Rust family tree platters…at the bottom we had their wedding anniversaries, and one one of the branches, we had ours. We handed them out at the rehearsal dinner and they really enjoyed them!
For the bridesmaids, I collected some of my favorite things from Brooklyn and beyond and tucked them into a Fishes Eddy Brooklyn tote…clockwise from the left: flip and tumble tote, Love coasters from Sesame Letterpress, personalized bowl from Paloma’s Nest, journal from Paper+Cup, and postcards from Simply Photo.
For the groomsmen, Chad bought everyone Faber Castell fountain pens…this black wood finish was really slick. I wouldn’t mind one of these for myself…

I love this Robert Ryan tile as a wedding gift…I bought one of his pieces when we were in London….

Chad knows how much I love to blog…I mean seriously, I was blogging on our honeymoon for pete’s sake! Which is why one of his wedding gifts to me, this fabulous Flip Ultra, was the perfect gift. I can carry it around in my bag, take up to 60 minutes of video, and just plug it into my computer to download. These would make great gifts for your bridal party too! [I ended up bringing mine out at the wedding and taking some impromptu videos!!]
