Hi!  We did a Wolfpack program!  🙂  We printed them ourselves, on our inkjet printer at home, using regular white cardstock that we bought at Wal-Mart.  We figure that this will be absolutely good enough, for something people are going to glance at during the ceremony and then probably discard!  Haha.  Our cardstock came in normal-sized sheets (8 1/2 by 11), and we fit two double-sided programs to a page, and then cut them apart once printed.  🙂  Easy peasy!  We got it all designed, printed, and cut in one night!  Here’s photos of the front and the back:

@Nic01:  I have no idea of the thickness!  The packaging is long gone now, so I can’t check, either.  I’m so sorry!  We just bought whatever they had at Wal-Mart, though.  It wasn’t expensive or anything, if that helps at all!

@CookieCharmer:  I know this is off topic, but I read your programs (they’re great, BTW), and the signing a square on your journey through Candyland caught my eye.  We’re trying to incoorporate various board games into our wedding, so I’m wondering if you could tell me more about that (assuming that’s what it’s referencing)!  Thanks!

@DaniLyn:  Hi there!  Our wedding is candy-themed, so instead of having a guestbook, we bought the latest version of Candyland and got the game-board blown up and printed into a poster.  We’re asking our guests to each sign a square, so we’ll always know we’re not alone as we “journey through Candyland” as husband and wife!  🙂

@vanike:  Hi there!  🙂  I’m from Newfoundland, and around here it’s traditional to tap your silverware on your wine glass if you want the bride and groom to stand up and kiss during dinner.  We don’t like that particular tradition, and find it annoying…so instead, we have filled up a gumball machine with gumballs in our four wedding colours.  If people want to see us kiss, they must “try their luck” with the gumball machine.  If they get a lime green or hot pink gumball, we’ll kiss for them…but if they get a blue or orange one, then THEY have to choose someone to kiss in front of everybody!  😉  So, it’s sort of a fun little gambling game that people can play during dinner.

Those are so cute!! Did you use a template or just make it yourself?

i have a template that i made for fun. it’s on a full sheet of paper, then that sheet is folded in half to have a front and back.

also- depending on your printer, you should check and see what weight of paper can and can’t go through the printer.

@RunnerBride13:  I’ve seen tons of programs similar to these before (mostly here on the ‘Bee!), so I just took that idea and designed my own from scratch using the same basic format.  🙂  I can’t lie, I had a LOT of help from my amazing FI…who is a computer engineer.  😉  Haha!
