Do-It-Yourself Ceremony Programs

ALL THINGS WEDDINGS, Do-It-Yourself Wedding Projects

I found this awesome free printable for our wedding programs via Pinterest. I loved how when it downloads it’s a Microsoft program so you can completely personalize the programs to your liking. The only things I changed was the wording and the font style. Other than that the design worked great with our wedding style!

Items purchased:

– Heavyweight card stock. Choose a weight that you’re comfortable with. Remember the thicker the paper the harder to get a crisp fold. I used a boning tool to help create a more defined crease. My cardstock is the color ivory and purchased at Staples.

– Print/photocopy the programs. I printed one copy at home and had Staples make copies.

I combined the programs with a wand to wave instead of throwing birdseed. Unfortunately no one used the wands once we were announced Mr. and Mrs. but it was a fun piece for children to play with while formal pictures were being taken. 

– Dowels: choose a width that suits your preference. I purchased mine at Walmart. 

– Ribbon: I chose two different ribbons to incorporate my wedding colors.

– Bells: the bells are to help make a cute ringing noise while they’re being waved. 

– Spray paint: I spray painted the dowels gold to help tie in my color scheme. 

Hot glue all the items together and you have a super cute wand!

Overall thoughts

Since I had a decent size wedding (approximately 140 guests) these programs were kind of a pain to make only because I had to produce a large quantity. I would definitely recommend either a girls night with wine and create an assembly line to help get these finished in a timely manner or for a smaller sized wedding. That being said I absolutely loved my programs and if I had to do it all over again I would probably deal with the carpal tunnel and make 140 all over again!

Thanks to our amazing photographer, Danyelle Dee Photography for capturing the most beautiful photos of our big day.

I wanted to share just a few detail photo shots that I thought were great for every bride to have taken to remember the little moments.
