@AmeliaBedelia:  yes, the Apache Prayer. It was also a nice way to involve our guests in the ceremony

Ours were done in pages and were fairly simple. I was able to print 2 per page so there was a lot of cutting involved. To finish them off, I attached an embossed leaf cut out of metallic paper to the tops and voila, programs!

This thread has made me want programs whereas I didn’t really care about them before!  You ladies are inspiring and those all look so PRO!

I designed them in Photoshop and used Vistaprint flyers to print.

Love how they turned out 🙂

Ours were also a simple card 4.25″x5.5″ (half of a letter-size sheet).  The front side named our Wedding Party & Parents and the Ceremony order.  The back side had a Thank You, In Loving Memory, and a note about cocktail hour & dinner.  I “designed” them in Publisher and we had them printed on cardstock and cut to size for around $20.  I wanted them to be a bit thicker/heavier than the cardstock that they printed on, so I used a tape runner to attach them to the front & back of black cardstock.  I only have a picture of the front though:

Ours is a front & back 4.25x 11. I used a couple of brushes from Deviant Art in Gimp to make the graphics, printed them at home, cut with a craft store paper cutter ($7 on sale) and stamped with our monogram stamp.

I redacted the names on this one which is why it looks kind of funny, but I promise it looked great in person.

On the backside we did a funny set of “top ten lists” for why each of us waited so long to get married. You could take out the funny and add more substance if you need it.

ETA: I did the graphics in Gimp, but used Word for the text and just added the previously made graphics as an image in Word. Super easy.

@AmeliaBedelia:  Deviant art is a website that has graphics tools for programs like illustrator, photoshop, etc. I don’t really know much about it because I’m not much of a designer but it helped me find a brush set that I liked 🙂 There’s A LOT of stuff on it though, can be a little overwhelming.

@Kenic315:  I keep thinking the same thing.  So many DIY projects I want to do, so little time to do them, and absolutely NONE OF THEM started. AHHH!!

@MrsDrRose612:  I know!  I have so many things to do, and I’m just like “oh, I’ll do it later”.  Well my wedding is a little less than 3 months away.  I should probably hop on that.
