Which Type of Save the Date Are You?

When planning your wedding, one of the first things you’ll need to do after you set the date is send out your save the dates — to make sure all your nearest and dearest can mark their calendars. But, it shouldn’t just be any old fill-in-the-blank mailer. Nor should it really be a group text. We love the idea of putting some careful thought behind the design and function of your save the date, and making it personalized to you as a couple.

So, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Minted save the dates here. Which one are you?
