INVITATION AS ART

Every hipster is friends with at least one graphic designer, which is handy when you need a new logo for your Tumblr. But when it comes to wedding invitations, how does the hipster couple differentiate their invitations from those of all their hipster friends, many of who are, yes, graphic designers?

They could spend an evening in search of what makes them special as a couple. Do they take public transportation to work because they live in a city? They could make their invitation a subway map! Do they shop at the farmers' market every Sunday? Get some turnips up in that shit! Brooklyn-based designer Kelli Anderson set the bar when, earlier this year, she devised an Etsy-esque wedding invitation containing a working 45 RPM and built-in record player, featuring a song co-written by the happy couple. "[T]heir love of music and collaborative auditory endeavors . . . [are] a touching aspect of their relationship and an important part of our friendship (I met Karen at a concert)," Anderson gushed on her blog.
