I hope you will all agree that this is pretty darn genius…Andrew wrote this book when he was 6 [yay for mom's keeping stuff!], and once he and Jami got engaged, they spliced in their meeting story into his childhood book for the ULTIMATE engagement party invite!

Whoa! These invites contain all the major food groups of invitations…wood (check), sewing (check), gocco (check), paper (check). Amy of Design Jo did these for her own wedding and they came out supercool!

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…
