I used Adobe Illustrator.

 

I was looking at MountainCow but didn't want to shell out the $$. I even had my FI search if he could download it online but he couldn't find it. I found out about MountainCow from a Wedding Magazine ~ looks like it may work. It depends upon how complicated you want your invites to look like, if its simple you can probably just buy clip art from Wedding Clipart - Make Wedding Invitations and Programs - Free Trial! and make it in word or ppt.

I was browsing more and for a DIY project it's still spendy! And I'm not head over heels about the designs I've seen so far.

 

What about Photoshop? Could you use that to create invites??

I just opened Photoshop. You can use it... there's a function in all Adobe programs called Bride where you can access thousands of photos online i.e. starfish, palm trees, etc. But there is no clip art that I know of that you can use. So for example, I wanted to use a photo of a starfish, I resized it smaller, turned it into black and white, then picked the color I wanted to make it so that it appears to be a drawing.

I made my own, but I didn't buy software. I just bought one of the DIY kits at staples and created it in word and printed them. They are plain, but I really didn't care because I didn't want to spend a lot on invites. Mine are white with a raised silver border. The kit came with the invitations and response cards for 50 invites. A lot of invitation websites sell the DIY ones too, I think Michaels also has them, or AC moore, one of them.

I'm a fan of Adobe as well. I love photshop and illustrater. I've never hear of mountain cow before you mentioned them but they lok like a good product.

 

Let us know what you decide on tara.

 

Oh BTW what did you have in mind for a theme for your invites?

Alright Ms. Tara, what are you thinking here? What do you want your invitations to look like? Do you have a photo to go off of? Do you have a theme, colors, style? What is your price range? I have a lot of ideas for DIY invites, but they vary quite a lot.

Wow, you ladies are so great!

 

I want to do something casual and vacationish... if that makes sense. Fun, simple, casual, beachy theme - starfish, turtles, beach, palm trees, whatever is beachy.

 

As for colors... not sure. Just tropical colors. I'm not sure we'll have a color scheme since we're not doing bridesmaids and groomsmen.

 

I REALLY want Photoshop! I'm trying to get a bootlegged copy from someone, or I might just buy it off of ebay! I LOVE that program and desperately want it.

 

Oh, and I probably have to invite 200 or so people, but I'm open to spending some time on them.

 

Can you tell I have no idea what I want? I really don't care all that much, as long as they are cute rolleyes.gif

I use Macromedia Fireworks. Just like Photoshop, but MUCH more user-friendly!!! Probably cheaper too...not sure about that though.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
