you mean with the accents on the letters (swash) flowing off the page?

if you’re designing in illustrator or photoshop, just make the text flow off the page. set up your paper size to be the invitation size, and make sure the swashes go off the page.

make sense?

I would go to Dafont.com and check out some different fonts to download. They also have dingbats that youcan use for some of the scrollies.

You can also go Etsy and get it designed pretty easily. and just print it yourself.

I reccomend Scribus, it’s 100% free software that you can download and does everything publisher can do and more. It has a bit of a learning curve but it is an awesome program to use, it is perfect for editing fonts and page layouts, and there are tons of tutorials online that are super helpful.

The font is called burgues script.  it is such a pretty font with so many glyphs.  In order to access the various glyphs, you will need a program such as InDesign or Illustrator that supports open type fonts (.otf). I personally find InDesign easier for typography so when I design a new document, I edit the vector graphic in Illustrator and place it into an InDesign document.  (This is from my non-graphic design background so anyone who has been able to use this these type of fonts in a non-graphic design programs feel free to correct me.)

I second Dafont. I couldn’t design all the invites, STD’s, menu, programs, etc. in Photoshop without it!

I heart that site! 

Secondly, when using Photoshop, layer, layer, layer!! Layering is definately your friend. Google and Youtube is fantastic to find easy peasy tutorials.

I enjoyed (ok, still am) designing it all on the computer the best!  Then again, I’m a techno-geek, so this is my thing. 


Have fun!

@oandm:  Your wedding is on my birthday!

I would definitely use MS Publisher versus Powerpoint as Powerpoint has a tendency to move things around and make adjustments when going to print.  I was advised by our printer to not use PP.  Good luck!
