Hi everyone at Brooklyn Bride, hope your summer is off to a great start! I myself have been daydreaming of a vacation lately, so I’m feeling kind of “mappy”.

post No.5 Maps
As many of you already know, a map enclosure is often a necessary part of your wedding invitation set. The best advice I give brides when we are at this point is “do not compromise”. There is nothing worse then being completely wow-ed by an amazing invitation and then having an ugly or technical map fall out. This breaks the flow of the whole look and feel you worked so hard to create. It is always great to order them with your invitation designer but if you are over budget, there are many ways to achieve this on your own. These days there are many online tools to assist you. Be careful to choose fonts and inks to compliment your invitations and be sure to get rid of all access information. The cleaner the better. If you feel intimidated by the process of D.I.Y, hit up a friend that is design savvy and ask them for the favor. You are after all, the bride! Your maps should tie in with the overall theme and appearance of your wedding invitation. Below are some of my favorite map designers…

Love IS for everyone! Loved those cards from Pearl & Marmalade!
These cards from The Great Lakes Goods were just full of homey goodness, I just loved them.
Sycamore Street Letterpress has cute wedding cards for couples…I should pick up a couple for all the weddings coming up.
Yellow Owl Workshop is consistently one of my favorite stops at the show…Evan and Christine are the coolest people ever, and really do something different with their products and designs. These new postcard packets would make great favors…they come in a couple of locales.
