If I hadn’t seen this first one going together in Melissa’s head, and actually helped assemble some of these at one point, this would have broke the internet for me the day I stumbled upon it. Romance Managed, a Marauder’s Map (ala Harry Potter) themed wedding invitation. Check out the detail! This girl can replicate movie props! A must if you’re a Potter fan or if you just love movie props. Or old awesome maps. Or magic. Or intricate package design.
If you don’t need something so elaborate but still want that Potteresque appeal, how about a Hogwarts acceptance letter invitation? The Loviosa Letter Wedding invitation. Classy!
Speaking of magic, what if a Disney storybook invited guests to your big day? The Fairytale invitation will do just that, cordial as royalty. You can tell your personal story just like the iconic storybook at the beginning of the classic Disney fairytale films. This is the invitation I actually took to meet the real Cinderella at Disney’s Magic Kingdom to model for us. Cinderella-approved!

Did you just die again? I did. Because Indiana Jones is my all time hero. Choose Wisely is a grail diary themed wedding invitation, and get this — it was originally designed for a couple who had their event at the Natural Museum of History… wait for it… when the Indiana Jones exhibit was there! They’re my heroes. This artifact could be yours! Are you attending? Yes: That’s the cup of a carpenter… or No: I’m not a historian. Well that’s ok, because you don’t have to be one to appreciate this antiquity.
Here’s another one I just want to hang in my house just because. Never Say Die is a Goonies inspired party invitation which can be easily be adapted to a wedding invitation. It’s so perfect for a pirate themed party or shower. I credit the inspiration here to that time in college Melissa and I hosted a Goonies movie night inside of a storm water runoff drain. “It’s our time down here!”
