Ok, so first things first – this is a huge undertaking! It seems like a lot of work with that many embellishments and different colors/ styles. I would recommend perhaps considering a more cohesive color palete where instead of making each invitation different, you simply select a patterned paper or two that you like and then build the invitation around them, using the colors from it as your solids. You can even take a nod to it when looking into your brads – for example if the patterned paper you choose has flowers, then use flower brads. Or if it has flourishes, maybe use fleur de lis brads. Either way, I hope you see what I’m getting at. I think it will make the process easier for your friends too, as they help you assemble, so that they can have one solid mock-up that will then be the example for each that they do.

Also, I’m not understanding the raffia. If you’re going with a more eclectic rustic feel, I suppose I get it, but then I don’t fully get the little charms either. Anyway, I googled “eclectic rustic wedding invitations” and I got this:

Note the cohesive color palete, though each piece in and of itself is different. I think the same thing translates to a booklet-style invitation: each page should be it’s own, but they should all go together.

Anyway, that’s my two cents. Hope it helps!
