Are you already skilled with Photoshop  and InDesign?  If not, you might want to look at some free printables on Wedding Chicks: http://www.weddingchicks.com/freebies/

There are other sites that have printables that are free or very cheap. 🙂

You could have someone design them on Etsy and send you the .pdf. Some people will do it as low as $30. Then, you could print then wherever you’d like.

You’ve listed 3 very different programs with very different capabilities, which will have very different effects.  

Personally, I’d use Illustrator for something like an invitation.  It’s got a clean aesthetic and it’s easy to edit what you do.  If you don’t have it already, you can do a free 30 day trial of it.  If you need help, pm me, I work a lot in Illustrator.  I also highly recommend this book for it.

For an invitation, the major tools you’ll need are the pen tool, type tool, alignment tool, and, depending on your source, livetrace.

find a cherry blosom vector you like and download it.  you might be able to find one for free but you’ll probably have to buy it to get a nicer one.  once you find the vector, open in illustrator and edit (colors, size, crop using clipping mask…)  you can go ahead and design your invite in illustrator but i personally find it’s easier in indesign if i need more typesetting features.
