Hi Bees, I just bought this invitation kit. I really liked them and planned to embelish them. The problem I have is that I have absolutely no ideas and can’t figure out how to even begin. I wentto the craft store hoping for inspiration and instead I felt overwhelmed. I would love to pick your creative brains…any ideas? thanks guys!
Here is the link to a decent photo of the invites.

Beautiful ~ start with the fonts of your names and work from there. That is really the most important part. Let that font guide you to the rest. I don’t really think you need any other graphics for your set since you already have a print.

I agree that using a nice font for your names is a great place to start. Do you have an accent color you want to bring in? If so, maybe use it to make your names pop from the rest of the text. I think the invites will look really elegant with just those few customizations. Really I think you have a beautiful invite set to start with, so don’t feel you have to do anything to them if you don’t want to!
Now if you are looking for other ways to make them more your own you could you could always scan the image from the wrap part and add it to the left side of the response cards (you might even consider doing that in your accent color). You could also use a ribbon “belly band” of sorts and wrap the invitation package vertically then seal it with the seals that come with the kit….again that might bring in your accent color if you have one…and I think I’d recommend using a satin ribbon that is half the width of your seal. You could also line the outer envelopes in a solid accent color, I’d avoid another print since it might conflict with the one on the invite.
