Have you looked at weddingmapper.com? That’s the only one I know off the top of my head.

We took a screenshot of maps.google and printed it.  Traced the roads/waterways we needed, scanned it back in and added icons, names and such in photoshop/illustrator.  It took about 2.5 hours…  but really wasn’t that hard.  If you don’t think it’s something you can pull off…  you can hire someone on etsy to make one (put an ad on alchemy).

I went to law school with a guy from Kalamazoo MI. I had such a HUGE crush on him but I never told him. Just seeing your location brings back memories 🙂

@VagabondGurl: Awesome map!  I did a similar method for my DIY map but mine doesn’t look nearly as good.  I love your little RIP Man of the Mountain too 🙂

I also did mine in Illustrator, tracing a screenshot from Google Maps.

@sboston06:  Thanks!  We made postcards for our guests, too, with the old man on them!  I’m technically from Boston, but we moved to New Husband when I was 9.  I remember when he “fell” – I was at a hotel in Ft Lauderdale and he was on the cover of USA Today.  I was so sad!  Everyone with me thought I was crazy! Haha.
