There’s the legit way and the not-so-legit way.

Legit way-  search “creative commons cherry blossoms” or “free cherry blossom image”.  When you find an image you like, put the cursor over the image and right-click with your mouse.  Choose “save image as”.  This will save it to you computer. 

You can also search stockxchange, iphoto, istock, etc.  You will have to pay for licensing rights for these images.

Use the website Wilton gives on the folder.  You can download a Word template for the exact dimensions of your invites/RSVPs.  You can use “insert photo” to add the image.

I am planning a cherry blossom wedding, too.  I am designing my Save-The-Date Cards and invites right now.  If you run into problems with these methods, PM me.  I can give you a hand.

Does the invitation set come with its own computer program to do the type set or does it depend on Word, Wedding Party etc.  If you can use word, set the document up as per instructed on paper size.  Then when your editing the invitation wording add the graphic image you choose to go around the text. 

I would choose a  black n white image or maybe a two tone image for their simplicity.  Make sure the graphic does not print on the border of the invitation.

As to how to find the images.  Google it. Google Cherry blossom, orange blossom, whatever, and select images.  I mean if the image saves clear, who in your invite list is going to scream copy right infringement.  That’s the beautiful thing about DIY invites.
