Hey all! I was wondering if any of you have your favorite wedding clipart you are willing to share. I’m working on my maps and looking for a few simple images to add in. I don’t mind editing it a bit in photoshop. I’ve googled but can’t find what I’m looking for exactly but thought it can’t hurt to see what the bees have!
This is the look I’m going for on the map (I like the champagne glasses and the rings but can’t find anything clean enough to put on mine)

uumm google image search? You can search for just clipart.

yes, I know Google Image search. But like I said, I wasn’t having much luck on what I was looking for so I figured that if other bees have done something similar they could refer me somewhere. I was just getting frustrated clicking page after page on Google.

I love your map! Where did you find that? I am trying to find a map to use for my directions card for the invitations but am not having much luck. I was in a similar situation with clipart for my invites (I am having them printed at a printing co.) and the woman at the shop told me to look for clip art in wedding catalogs. Any catalog that sells customizable products often has sample clipart that you can browse. I’ve got several catalogs that I ordered that have clipart samples like Invitations by Dawn, Jean M, Simply Weddings, etc. I hope this helps!

Thanks beachwedding that’s an idea I haven’t tried yet! Unfortunately I don’t remember exactly where I found this map, it could have very well been on a blog post on WeddingBee, but I’m not positive.

Try http://www.istockphoto.com. You can buy images of almost everything for a couple of dollars.

elle is right, iStockphoto is a great resource. If you search "wedding icons", you can find sets with assorted graphics (including airplane, rings, cake, champagne, etc.) all done in the same style. That way your icons will all match each other, which is great.
Another suggestion for clipart in general are the book/CD sets offered by Dover Publications. You can find them online and also at Barnes & Noble. I used one in the design of my invitations. An added bonus is that all of the content is royalty free and each image comes in a few different high resolution file types.
Good luck! :o)

This is hard to find on their site so I hope the link works for you. If not hopefully you can copy and paste it.
It’s from the weddingmapper website. You don’t have to make your map on their, but you can use their free icons. It seems like what you’re looking for. Good luck!

I forgot to mention…
A few of the bees have also used free fonts (that are actually icons) for their maps. I personally like dafont.com. I think their "picture" fonts are listed under dingbats. It takes some time to go through them, but it’s worth it for things like buildings, trees, etc.

I know that the below website has some very cute (and very free) symbols that you can download. They are ridiculously cute!

I’m not sure how they would end up printing, but the website below has some great buildings / decorative icons.
