Is it just for cost reasons? I making our programs for 100 guests for around 50 bucks…. but they’re pretty extensive.

I wanted to have something that could be kept by the guests so even though we aren’t having any readings (we are having a worship song)…

I’ve incorporated blk/whts of our engagement shots along with a picture my son drew of us getting married

and the words to the worship song we’re doing

I showed an instructor I had (she’s invited) and she absolutely LOVED them… couldn’t wait to get hers.

I think if you just don’t want them then don’t, but it could be a neat gift for your guests & still pretty cost effective if done right…

ie. we’re having our printing done at the college (media services… if you have a college near by check into them) I’ll be need around 800 1 sided prints and it’s gonna cost under 15 bucks…

I got the paper pre-cut for around 20

Just thought if cost is your deterant this ^ might help give some light =) otherwise if you just don’t wanna have another “to-do” then I say that’s cool too! 😉

Also check Vistaprint.  You can do multiple transactions or search for coupons and could probably get there almost free!  That site is such a lifesaver!

I wouldn’t say that they are neccesary, but they sure are helpful. I know I am not really a wedding website kind of girl so I probably wouldn’t go look at that. Also, I like to follow along with the wedding ceremony…or use it as a fan if it gets hot =)

I’m doing a simple 2-sided 5.5″ x 8″ cardstock (one piece cut in half – makes two programs each) with the order of events on one side and the wedding party on the other.  I bought a reem of cardstock for my invites ($15) and will take them to Kinkos to have them professionally cut (less than $5).  Ialso bought a corner punch from Michaels for $3.50 (had a coupon) and will punch the corners to give them a little style.

I only need 150 of them … dirt cheap, really.
