I am struggling with this whole program thing. We arent going to have the ceremony details on the program and I cant seem to find too many templates that dont do it that way. I think I am making this way too hard on myself and its stressing me out! So if any of you can show your more casual, fun programs or your inspiration programs I will forever be in your debt 🙂 Thank you!!!!!!!

This is the only pic I have of my program – but the content included:
Cover, Bridal Party, Ceremony (but non relegious, just explained the significane of ceremony song choices, wine box, etc.) Timeline of Events , & Special Thanks.
I did a very simple 6×6 flip style program w/ an eyelit in the corner.

If you get to a store check out the Martha Stewart wedding magazine (this could be online on her site too?) One of the pages has 4 program ideas that are short and simple and I thought they were super cute!!

I did a program for the whole shebang and placed it at everyone’s seat where a menu would be typical as my ceremony was only 10 minutes long. Loosely, the content resembled a playbill, with pages being titled “The Cast”, a list of Acts/Scenes for various events, “The Scene” (explaining some of our symbols/decorations). Not fully fitting with the theme, it also included “The Menu” and “The Blessing”. All pages were on cardstock, and it was bound with ribbon at the top.

I like this question. I’ve been having this problem as well. Mine just feels like its missing something. I’m trying to create something in word, but am frustrated.

I am working on something in Word too. Is that what people do? hahahaha. I feel like even the people that say they did a really easy DIY still do graphic design stuff that I just cant figure out!

I saw this post last night. I love them. I am going to attempt to make them . . . I’m not crafty, so we’ll see . . .
I love how Ms. Tartlet includes what info she put on each page. Really helpful.

I made a little booklet that included pictures of our engagements & 2 pics that my son drew.
You could definitely do it in Word, altough I used another program that I was familiar with b/c I HATE Word (that’s another story)…
In Word I would start with the size page you want…. That will be easier than trying to adjust the regular page for folds, etc.
Then the info you’d like to include…
Like pp I included the ceremony “run-down” which you could do too, and that doesn’t have to be religious.
My went like this (think front/back)
1. Title Page, 2. Drawing from kiddo,
3. “The Ceremony of” just the title, 4. engagement pic,
5. Ceremony rundown, 6. engagement pic
7. Words of Song Included in Ceremony, 8. engagement pic
9. The Company (title only), 10. Pictures of the Party and their names underneath
11. The list of everyone in the wedding iclduing officiant & ushers, 12. “family” drawing for kiddo
Mine was kinda extensive but if you get it lined out in size sheets you want it’s just about assemblying it really.
Here’s a pic
