A great thing to do is to make your own wedding programs. Although it does cost a little bit of money up front, it's still much less expensive than ordering them out from a paper products provider. From trifolds to storybooks to fans, there are hundreds of wedding program ideas out there for you to choose from.
A great, modern wedding program idea is to make a trifold program. Think of the way a brochure looks; it's a normal 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper folded into thirds. The best part about a trifold program is that it is divided into six parts, so that is six different spaces you can utilize for a different aspect of your program.
The front of the program will likely list the name of the bride and the groom, the date of the wedding, and may include an engagement photo, or other symbols of marriage such as doves, rings, or flowers.
When you open the program up, you can use the three open spaces each for a different item. One could list your wedding party from your maid-of-honor and best man to your flower girls and ring bearers. Another can include the order of the ceremony, from lighting of the candles to songs to the recessional. The third central space should include any special thank-you's, acknowledgements, and any "in loving memory of" texts.
There will be two remaining spaces that you can leave blank, or fill with photos, directions to the reception hall, your new address, or even lyrics to songs played or sung at your wedding. Finish the program off by tying a fabric ribbon around each, and with this type of program you'll really impress your guests.
Maybe storybook style wedding program ideas would better suit your big day. For this, you'll use more paper and in the long run will save less money, but if you want to really surprise people with a touching love story, this is a way to do it.
You'll start the front of the book with the same kind of intro page as on the trifold program. Then, you'll use the following pages to tell a little bit about the bride and the groom, being sure to include some photos of each as individuals and an engagement picture as well. Then, you can include the wedding party, ceremony order, and similar aspects to the trifold card.
Once you've got all your pages completed and in order, punch holes in the left side and bind with a white ribbon. This will be a sure hit, and your guests will talk for months about how unique your wedding was!
A third wedding program idea is to make a fan. This is particularly handy for weddings held outside or during summer months. You'll need to buy card-stock paper and thick popsicle sticks, which can both be bought from your local craft store.
You'll be creating a 2-sided fan. You'll print all the information you want to include in your program on two pieces of paper (you probably won't be able to fit as much onto this program as the other two wedding program ideas described), and then cut each paper into a matching fan shape. You'll glue the backs of the fan-pieces together, and before sealing the bottom, insert the popsicle stick. This way, the program can be used as a fan for your guests during your ceremony.
If you're wanting to come up with some unique wedding program ideas, any of the above listed would work great. Feel free to tweak any design to fit your needs and wants, and you're sure to have beautiful programs that you and your guests will love!
