My Last DIY-Wedding Programs

I had been looking at programs for the ceremony and reception for months, and noticed that they were all seperate documents, so I decided to incorporate it in one. I used Word to create the programs and played around with various fonts and styles. I decided to use some of the same font I used for my DIY invitations and inserts and added my monogram to the background layout for our acknowledgement page and also added a map. The final program includes a cover page, acknowledgement, wedding party, ceremony, reception and map page, an all in one. I only printed the cover page in color (my cherry red was used in the Welcome) and the remaining pages were in black to keep the cost down.

I pdf'd each page seperately and then had them printed at Office Depot, I printed about 35 pages for each page for a total of about 105 programs. The pages were created in Word w/three colums so each document had a total of 3 programs that could be created. Office Depot printed,  I used a $10 off coupon I had at the office. I then used my paper cutter at the office and had help from one of my maids and my daughter who sat and cut them in 3's and I showed them how to layer and place the bow. I used ivory linen paper that I purchased at Office Depot with a $10 coupon and purchased black card stock from Joann's for the back. We used a whole punch gadget that I also purchased from Office Depot to create the side whole where the ribbon (the ribbon represented the same ribbon I used to wrap the wedding invitations, I had some left over, I had purchased from Michael's) was tied. This allowed to have so coheasion btw the invitations and program. I also embossed the word Love with a love stamp that I purchased from Michael's with the goldish/mettalic looking embossing dust. I had also used this dust on the invitations. I learned the embossing technique from one of the reps. at Michael's and also looked at some DIY youtube videos, I purchased the embossing fan at Michael's.

Here was my inspiration, I think my replica's were not so bad.

 

Here are a few pictures and if you want the Word doc. so that you can create your own, I am willing to share, no need for someone else to get stressed out trying to recreate this.
