I’m designing my Save the Dates right now based off a design I saw on Etsy that I loved. I think its easier to make adjustments to a piece that’s already been designed than start fresh. I would suggest browsing around for inspiration and once you find something you like start tweaking it to your preferances – font, font colors, graphic you prefer to the one they used, etc. Using another piece for guidance can save you a lot of time in figuring out a layout that works and proportions.

Since you’re on a time crunch, you may want to put most of your effort into the main invitation and make any additional pieces simpler, but coordinating. Carry over the fonts and colors, but don’t worry so much about incorporating a fancy design.

HTH!

I agree. I just finished my programs, inspired by someone else’s design. I had free handed one and it seemed plain. Now I *love* it.

Pick something simple like a texture to incorporate and don’t stress about the image. Or pick your favorite few and ask friends and family what they think (or do a poll on the Bee).

Time constraints are going to force you to pick something so maybe if you have some ideas of what you like you could get some suggestions from the bees.
