Your ideas sound beautiful!

And don’t worry I spent days and days on my save-the-dates and really enjoyed the process. Just keep making a draft of every idea you have and eventually you will find one you like.

I would recommend putting the text on the paper and then adding design elements around it.

Have you looked for fall imagery on iStockphoto?  I think fall leaves, acorns, haystacks, could be really beautiful.

What about just some kind of swirl from istockphoto? I love one that I found and it would look wonderful printed in a brown or coppery color on the colors you’ve chosen.

I would use it horizontally, but you could do either.

 Also, I found this wonderful clip art book on the Dover Publications website that is called Calligraphy Graphics or something close and it’s basically a ton of clip art just like that swirl. Maybe one of those would work.

 What don’t you like about your ideas?

I designed my own invitations and have a similar theme as you, I used the copper stardream as the accent panel to mine and I wish I had gone with a brown pocketfold, but Fiance vetoed that and I used a natural paper looking pocketfold.  here are my invites if you would like to see them:

if you’d like to use any part of this, let me know and I’d be happy to send you the files.  I did them in Illustrator.
