SUPER Cute Atlas Map Wedding Invitation

Introducing my newest custom wedding invitation, The Miriam Collection!  This Atlas Map Wedding Invitation is  SUPER cute, vintage, modern and rustic all-in-one!  Client statement: “As for graphics, the scrolls are pretty as well as lace or anything a little vintage, southern, or feminine.  I’m not a girly-girl by any stretch but for some reason, planning this wedding has brought out insane levels of repressed feminism in me that apparently hasn’t been unearthed since I was a child wearing pink rompers!”.

{How the design process started} My client provided me with her inspiration board and possible color choices and pretty much told me to “go for it”!  Music to my ears of course! She also loved my sense of color and said to use whatever colors I wanted.   So, with the inspiration board at hand, some research on her venue, and some insight on her personality, it all started to come together and the design went in the direction of whimsy and rustic, with touches of “girl” (Does that make any sense…?  Who knows, but that’s what I call it!).

The rustic touches play into part with their wedding and reception being held outdoors in the meadows of the T-Lazy-7 Ranch in Aspen, Colorado.  Don’t want to get you too excited but check out this amazing photo of the place! Photo by Rebecca Driscoll, 2008.

Working off an Atlas theme with vintage feel, I was dying to add fun little “accents” specific to this couple and their wedding location!  So, I artistically incorporated airplanes, birds, and a map overlay to this Atlas Map Wedding Invitation.  All these elements are symbolic to the couple and to their actual wedding location. For graphics, I digitally manipulated a county map of Colorado and artistically located the venue’s location on the map with an airplane flying into Pitkin County! A stylish font type to match the venue, the Colorado state bird (the Lark Bunting) to symbolize the “love birds” and to reflect the CO wedding locale, a directional compass to highlight the Atlas theme, airplanes to reflect the couples world travel, and hearts to symbolize their LOVE!  FUN FUN FUN!

This Atlas Map Wedding Invitation suite is a pocket-fold with 3 total cards and 2 envelopes in the set – Invite, RSVP, and a Directions card. It comes with a custom mailing address label wrap, custom envelope liner, custom matching address label for RSVP envelope, and a custom personalized monogram detail. The entire set is a matte finish product but can be upgraded to a metallic finish for additional charge. More enclosure cards can be added to the set as well for additional charge – Reception card, Transportation card, Information card, etc.

If you’re a bride who wants to “theme” your wedding but do not know how to go about it, I recommend to think about your “likes” and reflect on your personality and your fiance’s personality. This way, you can’t go wrong and it all totally makes sense! As for my client, she and the fiance are avid world travelers, so the Atlas Map theme makes sense.
