I have exciting news, lovelies—and an excuse for my blogging absence. I've been busy with the beginning stages of wedding planning. :) A couple of weeks ago, G popped the question on the last night of our little road trip vacation—at a gorgeous, Italianate bed and breakfast. It was perfect and he completely caught me by surprise. (Impressive!)

By now, most of our family and friends have heard the good news in-person, on the phone, or via Facebook. But I'd love to send something official to our closest peeps. I remembered that I also need to get moving on Christmas cards so I'm not last-minute this year. And a brilliant idea hit me: Why not officially announce our engagement with our Christmas cards?!

I could spend (and have spent) hours upon hours browsing holiday cards on Minted. They have something for every aesthetic, personality, and price range.

We don't have engagement photos yet, so I plopped our "proposal pic" (taken the morning after our engagement before we left the B&B to head home) into Minted and got to work. I love that you can preview your photo in different styles. And for what I'm envisioning, the petite cards are the perfect size and price.

I've finally narrowed it down to my four favorite options. 

Right now, Minted is also offering up to 15% off + free shipping on holiday cards. So, I need your help deciding on my card so I can take advantage of this great offer by 10/30!

Option 1

I love the ethereal watercolor vibes this one gives off. It's reminiscent of looking out a frosty window at a winter wonderland—and it makes me almost excited for snow. 

Option 2

Apparently, I'm really into white and gray this year. But with this one, I just adore the sweet botanical design that runs behind the photo. It adds a bit of whimsy while keeping it clean and simple.

Option 3

I had to have a colorful option. I love this one's whimsical pattern and pretty "spruce" color. 

Option 4

This one is as minimal as it gets, but I love the simplicity. The little emerald heart adds a cute splash of color. And I like that I could tweak the text size to make the "Mr. and Mrs." part big and bold—especially since this card would double as an engagement announcement. 

Which one is your favorite and why? :)

Option 4! I like the squarer format of the picture and then the large script for the Mr/Mrs part!

I liked the snow print holiday card better and seem perfect for the occasion of a wedding. My wedding is also just around the corner soon after I’m done with my PhD program. This is why I just bought dissertation abstract UK-based services from an online platform so that they can write for me and I can do some wedding shopping.

Fantastic way to celebrate a wedding. You can go for Abu Dhabi city tour deals for your honeymoon. It is a beautiful place to visit in UAE.

Yes, this is a true thing that online businesses will face a decrease in demand and will definitely implement promotional strategies to cope with that. But one business that will grow after the holidays is online assignment writing service UK because students will have exams and assignment submissions right after the holidays. So, they don’t need much effort like the other businesses.

Since this was written so long ago, please share which one you picked. I personally like option 4. Simplicity tends to be more elegant. I like the little subtle pop of color. Nice font in that too. Thanks for sharing a little piece of your life with us. Shalom
