I had the best luck actually using google image search and typing in different terms of what I was looking for. Better than pinterest by far.

Okay, these are NOT going to be helpful to you, but here were my inspiration photos: 

And here are how my real ones turned out:

I totally agree with @NAvery, Google image search, which may lead you to Etsy. They have pretty well defined categories for wedding invitations there. Just throw in all those words you mentioned πŸ™‚

@Nic01:  This may or may not help you, but I love paper so I have a whole board on Pinterest devoted to wedding stationery.

Etsy is another good place to look, I’d suggest typing in “eco wedding invitation suite” or similar. πŸ™‚

Good luck!

@NAvery:  Sorry to be a pain, but I love how you’ve got different cards in there with different info on them! That’s something I’ve been struggling with with the invites for a while now – could you please send me some photos with how they all worked, or how I could find options online myself?

Haha, I think this is one of the first times I’ve actually gotten excited about someone else’s post Wink

@LadyElva:  Yeah – will you shoot me a private message and I will send you some info tomorrow? (The PM will put an email in my inbox and remind me). I would do it now but need to send you some big files and don’t have high speed internet at home.

There’s not that much to it. I decided on the tallest size card I wanted, then the smallest size card I wanted, and split the difference for the size of the other two cards. Then I made that band along the top so it was wide enough that when I stacked them on top of each other you would only see that, not the text that is actually on the card. Just lots of measuring!

Very glad you like the idea πŸ™‚

@NAvery:  Wow I am in love with your invites. What did you use to design them? They are awesome.

@Tandysha:  Thank you. The pockets and the printed paper are from Cards & Pockets (I cut the paper to size). I used InDesign to lay out the inserts and printed parts, although there is absolutely no reason someone couldn’t do it in Publisher, Word, PowerPoint – whatever! The only tricky thing with one of those programs is you can’t change the letter spacing as easily, and that is important (in my opinion) to making script fonts look good.

The fonts were Gotham for the sans-serif and Alex’s Hand and Great Vibes (both free) for the script. I think Great Vibes was the main one and I just used Alex’s Hand for the first letter of our names because I didn’t like the A with Great Vibes.

Hmm, I don’t have an inspiration per se. However I knew I wanted my invitations to be very unique to my wedding theme (romantic, vintage and garden theme)

I searched high and low and finally came across a wonderful etsy seller (parchmentposies) that worked with me to create my own invite from scratch! 

Here is my actual invite image!
