What computer program do people suggest I use to create my invites, programs and other wedding documents?
I have a PC and only the basic word programs. People seem to have mentioned Publisher and Photoshop. What’s your preference and is it easy to use?

I designed our invites in Photoshop and our seating chart in Word. 🙂 The only other paper did was place cards and we bought ready-made ones and I hand-wrote the names on them.
Photoshop does have a little bit of a learning curve, but it’s not too bad and there are a TON of tutorials online. For the seating chart, I downloaded a template and just plugged our information into it. Super easy.

If you can afford it and are patient enough to learn it: Adobe Illustrator. It’s a vector program so you don’t see those tiny little squares when you send it to printing!

Anything with text should really be designed in InDesign or Illustrator, depending on how much text there is. Indesign is ideal for booklet style printing but Illustrator is good for vector art so if what you are printing isn’t too text intenstive you can do it in Illustrator. The very best would be to design the elements seperatly in Illustrator/photoshop and then bring them into Indesign.
Some printers will help you with this and it wouldn’t add too much to the printing. Try smaller printers and ask if you would get a discount on design if you print all your wedding paper there. Someone who knows the program could do this very quickly.

I found MS publisher to be the easiest.
