So, maps are a DIY project that I am really not having a good time doing. Also, I’m pretty sure I’m not good at it. I’m having my ceremony in a place out in the country that has the potential to confuse some people. However, I think at this point, my map will confuse them more. There is an address on the invite – should I just trust them to google it?
Are maps a must? Are you doing maps?

I’m including a map, even thought the reception is at a historical site that should be easy to find. I think it’s a must if you don’t want people calling you on the morning of your wedding asking for directions!
Also, I thought this was going to be about some sort of sexy map…

Yeah totally thought that was code 🙂 We are not doing maps. Everyone is either local or I figure they know how to work mapquest.

@SBourgeous: hahaha so did I! I was intrigued by the title of “maps” in the Intimacy board so I had to click on it!
Yes, we’re doing a map as our venue is a bit out in the country as well (in addition to being in a small town that about 90% of the guests have never been to). We mapped it out exactly, to the tenth of a mile, in addition to adding in landmarks to watch for. I’m hopeful that no one gets lost but will be including a cell phone number for a few locals (family members) who will hopefully be able to direct any misguided guests.
Oh yeah, we’re also providing a shuttle from the hotel to the venue so hopefully most people don’t drive!

Hehe maybe I should start posting everything under intimacy to get attention:) My next post will probably be about blinging things under my dress….SHOES I mean! 🙂

Ha ha…nothing says sexy like a well drawn map.
We’re going to do a DIY map to include with the invite but also on the wedding website (but I voted for the first option). I found this Etsy seller though and I love her maps as well!

I wanted to have a map just to make sure nobody was confused. I messed around with DIY but just wasn’t happy with it. I found someone posting in the classifieds that linked to their etsy account and she did my maps for $3! I ended up paying her $10 just because she had them created within 12 hours and she made all the changes I wanted. She emailed me the file and I printed them and cut them. Seller: lilacsandlace

I’m planning to have a DIY map, but that’s simply because I want to make one! I don’t think it’s at all essential and I rarely receive one in an invite. Everyone has sat nav or can look up the location if needed.

We’re including driving directions because there is NO cell phone reception at our location! NONE! LOL! We will be putting someone at the base of the mountain with either my phone or my FI’s (probably both) in case people call.
I’m pretty sure a map would be confusing since I can’t find a good one that would work.

@kayp23: You know what I was asking the same question my self and I finally thought that there would only maybe two people who would really need a map! and I would just print one for them!!! But you could figure out who would need one and then stuff a map into their invite!!!

Some people are telling me I need to do this. Most people (well pretty much his side) are not overly familiar with the area. I figure the address is there, google it if you don’t know where your going. If someone needs help I’m sure they’ll contact us before hand.
I’m trying to cut corners as many ways as possible.
I don’t have a wedding website but have been considering it the last couple days because then I could put a map there, but I don’t know if I can be bothered!
