Throughout the wedding planning process, I've learned that if you wait and research long enough, the right idea will come. I showed map examples to Mr. Bliss and he was sold. In addition to using the map as part of the save-the-date we are looking forward to having one matted and framed to hang at home.
I called Laura, who is such a gracious and talented gal, and we started immediately planning the map together. Mr. Bliss and I wanted the map to show our guests just what we loved about our Lake Placid wedding location. For Mr. Bliss this meant showcasing the river that he has spent many summers fly-fishing with his brother in, as well as the local Pub & Brewery which makes award-winning microbrews. I love walking down Main Street Lake Placid with its boutiques and quaint candy shops, and Mr. Bliss and I spent a day on Whiteface Mountain early in our relationship so both of those were my choice to be highlighted. We shared the important wedding locations with Laura and a week later, this delightful file was in my inbox:
We couldn't be happier with the map. Stay tuned for Part II: how we incorporated the map into the save-the-date.
