I needed to use up a Vistaprint Groupon and decided to get my programs out of the way. I really debated on doing programs at all, but I do like them when I go to weddings, and Fiance said his family would enjoy them as keepsakes. Plus I just love paper products, so I went for it!
I used Vistaprint Rack Cards as the template for designing them, so they will be 3.74″ x 8.27″. My plan is to have one set on each chair, as we will not be having ushers. Plus the gray will look nice against the white chair covers and plum sashes for the ceremony.
Are you doing programs? If so, do you have any photos of your or of inspiration you like? What are you including?
When will you complete your programs? With the one other wedding I have helped with, I seem to recall she did them just a week or two ahead of the wedding. I’m definitely taking a risk and hoping no one gets ill or steps out of the wedding, but I’m not too terrible worried about it.
(All names are altered so no one’s personal info is on here!)
Our colors are plum and gray and I’m going for sort of a modern look. The background is a gray textured linen look, I hope it prints as nicely as it looked on my screen. The style of our names matches the style I am painting on the runner, and the pattern across the top matches our invitations. I already ordered them so don’t tell me if you hate them or find a mistake, LOL!

I plan on just printing them out on brown cardstock, here’s my inspiration:

I made made myself and printed them at home… For our hindu ceremony, I used handmade silkscreened paper from Paper Source that came in big sheets that I cut to size, with a vellum overlay. The inside was printed on just regular cardstock. For our american ceremony, I used scrapbooking paper, cut to size, and regular paper on the inside. I tied both with ribbon.

These are great! We weren’t planning on doing programs but these are so simply and pretty I may just have to borrow your idea

- Wedding: September 2013 - B&B
I was going to probably do away with programs (cut some costs) but my Mother-In-Law showed me some of the fan programs that people do:
These would be rather cheap and simple to make, and since my wedding will be outside in Sept, its possible it could be hot! It’s also possible it could be like, 65 degrees, but hey. Also it’s a nice project to do with my Mother-In-Law 🙂

We had fan programs that I absolutely loved!!! I found a vendor on Etsy who made them and they exceeded my expectations. The guests loved that they were a fan too!

I LOVE all wedding stationary so I am obviously a fan of programs. We also had a 2 sided program with the ceremony info on the front and fun facts and a thank you note on the back.

This was ours. Our ceremony was short and sweet but I still wanted a little something!

Darling Husband and I made ours ourselves and printed them at home. We just went with a cimple booklet route.

I made our programs myself, worlfpack inspired. We’re having a beach wedding in a tropical island so I made our programs shell-shaped and printed them on a board paper so they could double as fans too

@NAvery: Hey i am in the process of trying to create my rack cards as programs and I uploaded our design to the front but I can’t figure out how to get it on the back of the rack card. There is no upload option. How did you do yours??

I’ll be making them into the oh-so-popular fans, since our ceremony is outdoors in June.

@Katie1359: What did these end up costing you? They are gorgeous and would suit my outdoor wedding well. You can message me if it’s easier. Thanks in advance!
