@suburbian:  I think it’s going to stress you out if you do them online, because errrrrrbody is going to ask why you didn’t make them youself because of your high talent grade skills. Also, you shouldn’t get someone else to do it unless you just happen to fall IN LOVE with someone else’s design. Just because you will be able to put love into them no one can.

 

The only advice I could think of is to get as personal as possible? Like as in, the amount of detail and quirck that would apply only to you and your fiance. I feel like wedding invites miss that a lot. So start small, with something simple and if it’s trash throw it out, or build onto it.

When I am stuck on a design project, I start with ONE thing that I know I want – I find a font I love, or a color scheme, and then just play around with it. It’s okay if you make fifty iterations and scrap 49 of them. Try not to feel the pressure and just have fun with it.

What is your favorite thing about your venue? What are your colors going to be? If you could convey the desired atmosphere of your wedding to your guests in two or three words, what would those words be? What is one concept or physical thing you and your fiance both want to be at your wedding?

If you don’t like flowers, how about lace?
