I’m getting married on the same day and I haven’t even thought about them yet or whether I’m going to do them…don’t worry you have time!

I made my own but to be honest with you, I think they were a waste of money. I spent hours putting them together with so much care and no one commented on them at all. I would recommend to save your money.

I like programs, so we printed them ourselves (as we did for almost all of our stationary). Found a design we liked on here, put it into Publisher, printed out two (front and back) on each 8.5×11 sheet of pretty cardstock and used a paper cutter to cut the sheets in half. 

Did’t take much effort and I think they look great.

I saw ones like this and made them in indesign (photographer/graphic designer) I am just going to print them off on silver paper on my home printer.

Let me know if you want to do the same thing. I can send something over to you

Don’t stress!! You still have lots of time.

I have mine all designed but I haven’t printed them yet. I don’t want to do it too early in case something changes.

I decided yesterday that I’m going to go ahead and print the pages that I KNOW won’t change, though. That will help my stress level. HAHA!

I think programs are really nice. They don’t have to be super fancy though!

I had some leftover cardstock so I just cut the sheets in half (they were 12×12 and are now 12×6) and folded them so that they open in the middle.  I then just made up quick 6×6 pages to be stacked inside. One page has the order of ceremonies, one has explanations, one has thank yous and the last one has little faces of our bridal party with their names. Send them all off to a same day print place and have them cut out. Then all you have to do is staple them in. If you dont like the look of staples maybe a bit of ribbon or something. To close them I used a sticky dot roller and wrapped a little ribbon around them with a bow in front.

This may sound like a lot of steps, but Im talking about 3-4 hours tops and that includes designing all the characature faces on vistaprint (just right click them and save to your computer)

I’m starting to stress a little about programs too.  I really want to at least get them started even if I can’t print them yet.  However, I STILL am not sure if I will have a flower girl or ring bearer and I have to decide on my readings.  I plan on printing them on cardstock, but I wanted to make these cute ones off pinterest.  I’m afraid I’ll run out of time though…and I don’t have a sewing machine.

My friend completed hers a week before her wedding. She went to Michaels and purchased “Wilton” printable programs and downloaded the template. That is what i’m thinking about doing too. I’m not going to be stressing about it either.

Mine aren’t finished yet…I have a program doc saved in word, but I am waiting to print them incase something changes.  I decided to go super simple with them, using brown/kraft paper cardstock and plain white paper inside.  Will tie it together with a ribbon on the side.  Probably going to have staples print the inside for me.  I think it will be no more than $45, but might not even be that.
