    The links didn’t work for me either.

    For my invites, I did something similar to Option B with no gluing, and it was fairly simple. They both sound just as complicated as each other because of the gluing. If you were printing either of them directly onto the paper, it would save a step.

    ETA: The only reason I’d go with Option B is because elongated designs aren’t as common and look more elegant/interesting to me. Half-folded 8.5×11 is a very basic design and I see it a lot on everything, not just wedding stuff.

    Seeing the pictures, I definitely like 1/3s better. 🙂

    ETA: Since you’re doing them this weekend, I’d probably mock-up the different designs, print them out, put them together, and see what you like better and what is easier to make. They both look nice.

    My program was half of a a letter size sheet, rolled into a scroll with rubber stamping on the back and tied with ribbon similar to this. People loved it and it saved a ton of paper and money

    We are doing a booklet style similar to your option A.  Except we did them square.  We trimmed an 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock to be 5.5 x. 5.5 once folded.  It was fairly simple to print and assemble.  We used the left over scraps of cardstock as escort cards.  Worked out perfectly.

    I loce the idea for option A! I think the less cutting you have to do, the easier it will be! With all that cutting, I think it would be MUCH more work for option B. As a guest, I think booklets are nicer and easier to navigate.

    I had the same concern, so I bought irregularly sized cardstock (14 x 5) with a crease, so it folds to 7 x 5 landscape.  They will still fit through my printer just fine.

    @ElbieKay: That’s a great idea; I love odd shapes.

    You can also fold your program long-ways on Option A to get the elongated look (4.25×11) and it will be the same amount of work but still a bit different. I’ll be cutting 8.5×11 paper long-ways for my programs. 🙂
