The Most Frustrating thing I've done in a while...

Friday, April 22, 2011

This piddley little map was the most frustrating thing to do. We are getting married in a park, and I wanted to include a little map of the ceremony location, reception, and some major landmarks, so people can find the location easily. There's nothing worse than arriving at a wedding and having no idea where you're going...

This task was much easier said than done. I do not, at the moment, have Photoshop, so I created this entirely with Paint and Picnik. It just goes to show, with a little patience, you don't really need all the fancy, expensive equipment. Sure it's not perfect, but it'll work! I traced a Google Map with a fine tipped marker, scanned it in, and in paint layered the clipart. In picnik... or maybe I just used Picasa, I added the text in a random 'Hand' font. I printed them out on left over rsvp and invitation cards (which I then carefully cut in half) and they ended up looking pretty cute... not bad for Paint!

I am happy to say, after a full days work, I am nearly completed my wedding invitations. They are all printed... now it's just a matter of tying a pretty, purple ribbon around 60 invites, addressing them, and adding the proper postage.

Invites, by far, have been the most annoying part of the wedding-prep process! That being said, I am looking forward to getting my first RSVPs back in the mail!


  1. It certainly looks like it was fiddly! The guest list must have been a pain to do too.

  2. We were pretty lucky to have a fairly easy guest list to do... its a little bigger than I thought it would be, but I have a gigantic family!

    I certainly missed my Photoshop for this lol

  3. Good website! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes it is. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made.
