Using your Maps

We've worked with two separate couples that have gotten married on Isla Mujeres, a small island off the coast of Mexico. We did a complete matching set for this couple including thank you cards with the adorable hotel icon that was threaded throughout their printed materials. They really made use of their map design, since once we had it all set they incorporated my icons into every aspect of their wedding, starting from the save the dates, all the way to the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. The escort cards looked so sweet as did the table signs (which used icons, instead of numbers). Being a destination wedding, they included a weekend itinerary on the reverse side of their map (I just love all the tropical icons!), and also had a welcome bag for their guests featuring the monogram that we created for them. You can also see that they used their monogram for personalized stamps on their wedding invitations - it was a great way to tie everything together and use small touches to make their day special!

The invitation {also in the first photo above} featured our popular Ella Script style, and icons from the map, that was displayed on the cover. It was tied closed with a double-faced satin ribbon that we chose to match the color of the ocean in the map. Inside the map was an itinerary, the actual invitation wording, and an RSVP postcard.

The outer envelopes had the guest addresses in chocolate brown ink and Ella Script, and had fabulous stamps we ordered for the bride on Zazzle, that used the logo we initially created for the Save the Dates {below}.

The envelope liners for the Save the Dates were printed with the couple's logo pattern.

The Save the Dates featured a stylized map of Mexico, with a few icons from our map, with an arrow pointing to the location of the Island. It included the wedding website of the couple and a note to remind their honored guests not to forget their passports!

The welcome itinerary was size 8x10" and was included in all the gift bags. The itineraries listed all the events for the entire "wedding week" and used all the same bright colors on the map.

Custom totes in fun, bright colors were created with the logo we created screen-printed on the front.

My personal favorite: Adorable tees with the maps printed on the back, and the logo on the left side of the front of the shirts. Each guest received a shirt in their welcome bags.
We even used icons at the Rehearsal Dinner! We created icons for every location {10 in all} of importance to the Bride and Groom, including where they live, where they were born, where they got engaged, and their Honeymoon destination. Each guest had a placecard with the icon of the location to match the table name cards. The back of the table card had a description of the location and why it was important to Sarah and Patrick.
At the Wedding Reception, tables were marked with our icons instead of numbers or table names. Each guest was given a shot glass and the bottom had a clear sticker with the icon for the table they were seated at the bottom, so once they downed their tequila, they would go to their seat. The signs were placed in the floral arrangements.

The couple elected to order thank you notes to match their set as well, with the little villa icon at the bottom and in the same style as their invitations and save the dates to complete the set.

In this case, working with Sarah and Patrick started almost a year in advance of the wedding, we met several times to discuss designs, style, colors, etc. and it was truly a pleasure to work with them!

These maps are so beautiful! Great job and I've always been a big fan of using something other than numbers for tables!

I love your artwork! So special and wonderfully coordinated!

Thanks for sharing!
(I would love to showcase your island maps on My Island Wedding... how does that sound?)
