Hi! We are Sherie and Cheryl LaPrade – 30-something twin sisters, best friends and business partners. 🙂 We are wedding obsessed, love to design, adore anything vintage and are always looking for a good reason to celebrate! Our friends love to joke that we are joined at the hip and it’s true that we are pretty inseparable! We come from a close family of 4 kids, two awesome parents and more than a few furry friends. Born and raised in New England, the entire family packed up and moved down to South Carolina about 10 years ago in search of warmer days and sunnier skies! We’ve never looked back. In addition to our design fixation, we also love photography, singing (at church, in the car, wherever!), and spending time with our precious 2-year-old niece!

The two of us have a lot of differences (even though we’re twins) but one major thing we have in common is a passion and deep appreciation for good design! We both took art lessons as children, and discovered digital design late in high school. We love to pull great images from magazines, are ADDICTED to Pinterest and even dream about design! Sherie has been working as the full-time Graphic Designer for our large church for almost 7 years and Cheryl has been working in design and print, both at the church and in our business for almost 5 years!

We began Merrymint almost by accident! Lots of our friends knew that we loved to design and we would often get requests to help someone with a baby shower / wedding / birthday etc. It wasn’t long before we thought “hey, we could do this for a living!!” and Merrymint Designs was born! We feel incredibly blessed and so lucky to have discovered a way to use our talents and passion to make someone’s special occasion even more amazing! We LOVE what we do and can’t imagine doing anything else.

Our style is a mixed bag of vintage, classic designs and timeless elements! What makes us different from everyone else is that we don’t believe in sacrificing unique, quality design for affordability! We handle each client as one-of-a-kind, creative in their own right, and we really work alongside them to develop a design that is unique, affordable, and PERFECT for their day! We help eliminate the stress and hours that can go into special event stationery design and make it FUN and easy! We offer lots of beautiful original designs (that you can view at our Etsy shop) but are happy to work on custom jobs too.

We would love to work with YOU (or your friends) on your next special event too! We hope you will stop by our website and find out more about us and browse our designs. As our gift to you, we are doing a Valentine’s Day Giveaway! We will either custom-design a printable for your next party or event – OR – if you have no events planned, we will offer you 2 super-cute note card sets (10 cards and envelopes each) from our collection! These are not available in our shop, so the only way to get them is to win them!!

  1. I love their little announcements for partys, especially the one about turning one, probably because my little girl is about to turn one. I just love all the detail and mix of pictures and creativeness!!! So beautiful!

  2. I love the Sakura Asian Cherry Blossom Wedding Invitations. They’re so elegent and simple! I’m not getting married yet, but stationary with that on it would be so pretty!

  3. I love the Amore Wedding Invitations. As I’m already married I think it would be so cute to have “Thank You” be written in several languages for thank you cards. Such cute stuff!

  4. So I absolutely LOVE the County Fair Wedding invites! I’m getting married April 21, and my fiancee and I are doing a “rustic vintage” look that this would be PERFECT for!!

  5. Ooh, without hesitation, I would definitely move to Southern California.

    Besides the fresh air, sunny skies, and warm weather, my entire mom’s side of the family lives down there, and I would love to be able to be near them.

  6. I am a fan of both Merrymint Designs and The Dating Divas! I pinned the hibiscus wedding invitations and they are my favorite. I wish I had seen them last year when I got married!

  7. Girls…love your site! Thank you for so many fabulous ideas that encourage marriage to stay alive and well! Thank you for hosting the giveaways. I love the Merymint Designs Etsy Shop. My favorite product item listed at their Etsy store is ~
    Bird and Banner Wedding Logo & Monogram…
    Branding your wedding with a logo or monogram is the perfect way to incoporate your personality and passions into your day. A great logo will give your wedding instant recognition & help tie everything together into an elegant, cohesive package!

  8. how can I pick just ONE favorite? I love the Sakura Asian Cherry Blossom invites, the Asian Bamboo invites too! I also really like the Medallion design! Loving the Audry Damask design too.
