So I wasn’t going to create any programs for our wedding ceremony, but now I’ve changed my mind, I think it would be a nice touch! I really need help though. I’m using MS Word 2007, and I just don’t know how to resize my printing space so I can create programs like this:
I’ve tried searching for DIY program templates but have had no luck 🙁

Open Word. Go to File. Then select Page Setup. Choose the Paper tab (middle of the three). There, you can select the proper paper size for the programs you’d like to print (easiest way is probably to select “custom size” from the drop down menu and just enter the width and height yourself). Then, design in Word as you normally would!

Personally, I would do 5×7 paper which you can buy precut and save yourself a step, or do 2 per 8.5×11 sheet and cut them in half after printing. You should be able to change your page size in the “Page layout” tab at the top of your page in Word, and then there’s a button for size. If you click “more paper sizes” at the bottom you can make a custom size, or just choose another size from the layouts above.
If you wanted to do 2 on the 8.5×11 sheet and cut in half, I would just set up the page as two columns and copy/paste it over.

I agree with Bakerella’s suggestion of doing 2 columns per page so you get more per page – that’s how I set mine up in Word, and it worked out fine.
Since it’s a booklet, depending on how many pages you will have, you might just want to score and fold the paper in half, versus cutting it in half. I can’t tell from the pic if the paper is suppose to be attached to the fabric cover or not, but if so, and you just scored and folded the paper, you could glue the paper to the fabric by gluring down the spine (or sewing down the spine). Hope this helps!

Thank you everyone! Although in the directions for the this program it says to use paper that is 6 1/4-by-4 1/4-inch, that doesn’t seem to make sense since the pages are folded. SO, I think I will just do 2 per page, landscape style, then take it from there.
Thanks again, I work with word everyday and really had no idea how to custom my printing space!
