My wedding is in 10 days and I haven’t even started my programs!  I plan on working on them all day tomorrow!  I am using the information from this blog http://triptothealtar.blogspot.com/search/label/Programs

I bought stardream text weight paper do to them… good luck with yours!

Don’t worry!  Mine is exactly a month from today.  I did a template and had a draft within 2 days!  I am actually doing the Mrs. Emerald/Eggplant/Tiramisu style program that is on the site.  (I am using Adobe Illustrator though, which you can download for free for 30 days)

The fewer pages you have the easier it is I suppose.  I am doing mine on white cardstock paper and using left over paper from my DIY pocketfold invitations.  Good luck!

I also found a template that I loved on Weddingbee, but it was sent in by a reader. I hope you find something you like soon, and unlike me, perhaps you’ll finish way before your wedding date. Make sure you’ve gone through it thoroughly, though- I kept changing mine up until two days before my own wedding! I’ve included a link to the template of the program I used.

My programs will be a little more elaborate… a book filled with fun tidbits and comic strips and whathaveyou. I’m a graphic design student so if you need any help asap I would be happy to help. Martha Stewart has free templates for menus and placecards. The menu’s border is beautiful, all you would have to do is take it into word, put a borderless, white textbox over the word Menu and add whatever you wanted. ALSO!! If you are willing to part with $30, weddingdna.com is a clipart/ template site where you can print on your own whatever you want UNLIMITED! They even have a design center where you can put together their elements into whatever size you would like. I would recommend printing in black ink and use a light colored cardstock.
