Wine glasses, bath towels, and bed sheets… boring, boring, and boring. We’ve all been there: scrolling mindlessly through the couple’s wedding registry, adding to the cart a meaningless registry gift and calling it good. But why not surprise the happy couple with a gift that actually is thoughtful, a reminder that their love was written in the stars. A custom star map of constellations on the day and location of their wedding makes the perfect gift to commemorate their big day. Here’s why:

It’s unique, just like us.

We make unique, custom wedding dress dreams come true; Modern Map Art creates mementos of the place and time of an important event in your life, a customizable gift that’s also unique and personal. After traveling around the world on a honeymoon, the founders of Modern Map Art wanted to share their love for other cultures and cities and turned maps into artwork. In addition to custom star maps, you can also memorialize hometowns and city skylines and even your favorite ski hill.

We’re seeing stars.

There’s something so enchanting about the night sky, so it makes sense that constellation themed weddings are trending. Here at Anomalie, we’re seeing an uptick in requests for star lace that totally makes a bride sparkle. Of course, a custom star map of the night sky would make a perfect gift for these brides!

It’s a work of art.

Just like custom wedding dresses, Modern Map Art’s custom night sky star map is truly a work of art. Liz, Anomalie Stylist, vouches, “It not only commemorates our wedding day in such a customized way, but is also a beautiful piece of art to hang on the wall to decorate our home. It’s like nothing I would have thought of before, but when I found the site and heard of the idea, I had to have it!”
