Where the heck did you start? I’m feeling really overwhelmed right now. I think it’s just that I’ve spent too much time looking through various invitation suites. Now that I’ve officially downloaded the Adobe Illustrator 30 day trial, I’m feeling a little bit of pressure. It would be so nice to get advice from Bees who have already done it. Words from the wise please? Thank you in advance!

I definitely had a lot of ideas and had to edit it down. Basically I saved images of invitation suites that I liked the best and incorporated the elements I liked the most. I picked my printer first, paper and then started on my design. In hindsight, I probably would have started the design first and then figured out how I would like to get them printed afterwards.

First I saved on my computer tons and tons of inspiration images. I think I did at least four designs before settling on one and refining it. After designing the main invitation card, I moved on to the inserts. I also went through about 6 designs for the belly band. I found the best way to decide what I liked best was to print it on on regular paper, cut it down to the correct size and stare at it and then ask my Fiance.
