Awesome Map Invites


by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Awesome Map Invites | A Practical WeddingI love these crazy map invites from Omnivore. They are a little less formal then we personally would use for the wedding, but you can bet we’d use something like this for Save the Dates or an engagement party. Plus, you could stencil them yourself, and then print out huge copies (or teeny copies) at Kinkos. Also, I enjoy that it says “Festive Dinner.”
Awesome Map Invites | A Practical WeddingAnd while we are on the subject of map invites, I think Kathryn of Snippet and Ink’s idea for using maps as paper airplanes for Save the Dates is brillant. Things I like about it: You can do it yourself. You can use a map of someplace close to your heart or the location of the wedding. They fly. They are a little silly. (and I love silly).

Happy weekend everyone! I hope the weather where you are is as wonderful as the weather here! Lots to come next week.

    I love this idea for paper plane save the dates! I feel like I’ve looked at just about every Snippet and Ink inspiration board, but somehow I missed this detail. One of my close friends is an English teacher, who will be marrying a History teacher next summer, so I think I’ll suggest this to her! Thanks!
