@Beachy0404:  i DIY’d them. I went to Staples and bought some nice card stock and created my wedding program on MS Word and that was it. I also wanted a booklet so I just folded it in half. I didn’t want to spend unneseccary $$ on something that will be thrown away

@Daizy914:  I DIY’d as well. I made mine in MS and printed them on kraft paper I bought from Hobby Lobby.

ETA: I’m doing a brochure style–Using a 8×11 sheet and just folding it in half.

We did Wilton program kits! Cheap and easy! $20 for 50, I think.

But I don’t think they have anything in that color scheme…

I ordered mine through the Bed, Bath & Beyond website. They’re 8.5 x 11 inch, fold in halves, but have a crease to help fold. The brand is Gartner Studios and they’re 50 for 9.99, with free shipping. I’m adding a heart-shaped rhinestone detail, on the front, which then bring the cost up to .32 each. My Mom used the same program, but different color/style/wording/font, etc., to DIY print for my sister’s wedding. She estimates 90% were left at the venue, so didn’t think it was worth it to have them custom made by someone else.

@Beachy0404:  I ordered a digital file on Etsy for $20.  I’ll pay $0.38 for each double sided copy, so for 100 programs I’ll spend around $50.  Even if I factor in cardstock it won’t be that expensive!

DIY, they definitely aren’t worth spending much money on just a nice touchtouch

I got them from a invites place in town and they were only $1.10 each. I included them in my invitations package, so that may be why they were such a great price, but just wanted to throw out there that not all professionals are that expensive.

I got the person who is designing my invitations to create a digital hi-res file for my programs and menus and I’m just going to print them out myself. It’s cheaper that way and I don’t see the point in spending a ton of money on something that people are going to grab and then toss.
