We’re sitting down to make our ceremony programs and I’m wondering what programs you ladies used to make yours. Was it easy?
We’re going to make booklet programs and I’m finding it a little difficult to figure out how to lay out everything so once printed and folded, it comes out in the booklet layout.

I’m just using PowerPoint… it’s much easier for me to keep track of folded pages and move them around than with other programs.

If you have access to it you should use Adobe In Design. It is made for making books, catalogs, etc…

Microsoft Publisher- they actually have a program template where you can choose from a bunch of designs (or create your own!) It was VERY easy, and IMO, they look great!

I used Photoshop for ours and it was insanely easy. As long as you don’t get too fancy, PS is really user friendly. I only annoy Fiance with questions every few days. 🙂

I used Photoshop for all of our stationery and signage except for the inside of our programs! Those were done on Word. It was a pretty simple book layout with 1 page (4 sides when folded in half), which kind of sounds like what you’re going for. I turned the 8.5 x 11″ page to landscape, and separated it into 2 columns. On page 1 of the document, I had the last program page on the left column, and the first program page on the right column. Then on page 2 of the document was the inner 2 sides of the booklet. I printed on both sides and when the page was folded in half, it was arranged into a booklet style. Let me know if this helps…

Microsoft word with a template. They were amazing!

I used Powerpoint. It’s easy to move elements like text boxes around and I find the “Align” and “Distribute horizontally/vertically” tools very useful. It’s also super easy to change the document size to the exact size you want.

If you can get access to Adobe InDesign or Quark XPress they are both great graphic design packages. Failing that I’d do Photoshop and maybe import it into Publisher (Windows) or Pages (Mac).

Adobe Illustrator here! I used it for our invites and will be doing our place cards as well.
