Compass

There is so much inspiration that can come from a compass! "True North", "Home", "Travel"... It would also be a great theme for your forest wedding (see previous post).

1. Compass Escort Cards by Laura Hooper Calligraphy.
2. Top your cake with a weather vane, like this one from West Coast Weather Vanes.
3. Use the compass motif in all your stationery, like the one above by Ceci New York via Snippet and Ink, or this one by Boating Stationery.com.
4. Of course you need a wedding map! Or, incorporate maps into your stationery by printing wording over faded maps and delivering invitations scrolled into a map tube.
5. Have guests write notes to you on vintage cards and place them in a mailbox like this one by Grapevine.
6. Incorporate song lyrics like "Home" (Michael Buble) or "Come Away with Me" (Nora Jones). Besides using it for your first dance, you can also use the sheet music to these songs in clever ways. Print a page of the music on cardstock and include with your invitations, or print them on the other side of your programs/menus.
