I designed mine in Photoshop, but Illustrator is basically the same if you’re just doing any simple design + text layout. I just used a pattern in the background and layers over it to do it… see here.

One thing I did do was try font after font after font until I found the look I was going for. I may still change them, but I really liked how these two went together well in my design!

Good luck!

We did our own invitations, designed on Illustrator and then we letterpressed them ourselves.  I can’t say too much about it because my fiance was really in charge of designing and executing, but he used Illustrator for our design.

I think Illustrator is probably the best program for DIY invitations if you know how to use it. Photoshop is photo-editing software and isn’t really designed to create something completely original (better for piecing together parts than creating a new whole).
