What exactly are you looking for? I doodle invites all the time, and actually used to run a digital only invite etsy shop. I might have an idea or two!

What are your colors/theme/flowers? Where are you getting married?

Are you any good at photoshop? Or are you looking more for printable ones?

What about something simple like this, but in your colors?

something like this would be easy to replicate from patterns from pixelsandicecream.com

that is from here and is green and blue!

These are blue and green and cute, too!

I know what you mean. I literally dreamed about my invites thursday night. I woke up friday and finally knew what I wanted. Same with the save the dates, it took literally months…

I made 17 mockup save the dates and 7 mockup invites. Sometimes you just gotta let it hit you!

im kicking myself for getting in early on my invites.. I think i found non periel after I created the backing for my invites and by then too late, couldnt change it!

Haha I have dreamed of making my invites for over a year now, so there was no stopping me once I got started.

Toffee, have you considered wandering the aisles of walmart, target, michaels, staples and other places that sell printable invites to figure out if that’s the direction you want to go? some of those brides invites at michaels are GORGEOUS!

I was having this problem – just too many options, no clear direction.  I showed my Fiance a whole bunch and after about 45 seconds he said “I like the ones with a big flower in the corner”.  We still haven’t gotten a great design yet, but at least now I have some direction.
