I love travel-inspired wedding invitation designs, from maps to postcards to vintage stamps and everything in between. So naturally I adore this letterpress wedding invitation from Laura Macchia and May Day Studio inspired by the city where the bride and groom first met. Laura incorporated a lovely and simple map detail on the main invitation, with a fun rsvp card inspired by vintage postage stamps. So sweet!
From Laura: Jessica and Nick live in New York City, but will be getting married in Milwaukee, where they first met. Their inspiration was centered around vintage maps and stamps with an aubergine and taupe color palette. Since it will be a destination wedding for most guests, I wanted to incorporate a map specific to the wedding location in the invitation design.
I love how Lake Michigan becomes a flood of color that in turn creates the silhouette of Wisconsin. The propeller plane and globe stamps on the reply card further push the vintage-travel feel, creating a suite that is both personal and fun but still elegant and classic.
