Learn more about our ads. The Telsa-themed wedding invitation suite from Athena and Aphrodite. Stop everything you're doing right now and take a look at this wedding invitation design. It's the Tesla wedding invitations, and the designs are based on Nikola Tesla’s original patents, and a font created from his own handwriting! Athena and Aphrodite is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide! Now stop and think of when the last time you got something this scientifically bad-ass in your mail? Let alone, something that bad-ass that's inviting you to a party!? But that's what our sponsor Amanda, at Athena and Aphrodite, does — she makes wedding invitations with scientific and engineering themes! Apparently, this magic is what happens when an artists get two degrees from MIT, and grew up with an engineer/artist dad. All the designs come from things like Galileo’s sketches, polarized photos of sugar crystals, spherical harmonic equations, etc., and they're GORGEOUS. Plus, when you click on any of these designs, you get a really cool mini science lesson. Go ahead, give it at try… Atomic The Atomic suite features atomic models of different chemical elements, spelling out names and wedding dates! Concentric The Concentric wedding invitation suite features geometric drawings done in the 17th century with a mechanical drawing machine (a primitive Spirograph!). Digital With Digital invitations, the wedding date is in binary code, featuring printed circuit board patterns based on real electronics. Cross Section These feature geologic cross sections of the Williamsville, Virginia area, from the freaking US Geological Society. Selenography Yeah, I had to look up "selenography" — it's the study of the surface of the Moon. These designs are based on NASA/US Geological Society maps of the geology of the moon. Neural Chemical The designs on <the Neural Chemical invites are based on structures of the chemicals we release when experiencing lust, attraction, and long-term attachment. Malachite This design shows off the kick-ass coloring and the banded structure of malachite. Horology The Horology invites feature vintage drawings from a 1765 French encyclopedia article on clock and watch-making. I mean… Neutrino The beautiful designs in this suite were reproduced from bubble chamber photographs. Apparently, charged particles moving through the chamber leave tiny trails of bubbles that can be photographed. And I wouldn't have known that if I hadn't gone to check out the closer details of these babies. Who knew science was so romantic!? But, better than romantic, is discounted… OFFBEAT BRIDE DISCOUNT: When you enter coupon code OFFBEAT10 at checkout, you'll get 10% off any purchase of $100 or more!

These are especially exhilarating to this uber-nerd, and I only wish I had known about Athena and Aphrodite before I got married! Perhaps a vow renewal ceremony needs to be scheduled? Thanks for spotlighting these great invites, Offbeat Bride. 1 agrees Reply Amanda is the best! I ordered the Selenography save-the-dates about a week ago, and Amanda and I have been working on the layout of my invitations as well (I couldn't come up with enough info for 4 panels, as pretty as they are). I cannot wait to see my proofs and receive my invites 🙂 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
