As you probably would've guessed, I was one of those brides that made my own wedding invitations. This was back when that wasn't popular and there wasn't a lot of ideas to go by on the internet. That was back when Crane's still ruled and you went searching over books and books of "eh" invites.
One of the hardest tasks of my involved invitation was the map.Luckily, I'm pretty good with publishing software, but still, it was a chore. Just getting it to some kind of scale, etc, was awkward and difficult.
But today, there are plenty of amazingly talented people that you can hire to just design your map!
Like the ones above from Go Against the Grain.
For $35, they'll create a 2 sided design that you can print yourself. WELL worth the money, let me tell you!
And you can have one designed for any type of occasion. Not just weddings. Believe me, your guests will thank you!
