Fabulous Wedding Ideas: Creative Wedding Programs

On Tuesday we talked about why you should consider wedding programs and what they should include.  Today I want to share with you some really cute ideas for adding wedding programs to your ceremony as an additional design element.  If you missed it, be sure to click HERE.

Wedding programs DO NOT have to simply be a tri-fold piece of paper or a plain sheet of cardstock.  With a little pizzazz and a bit of thoughtfulness, they can actually add to the overall wedding design.  This is especially true if you are on a limited design budget.  Check out these adorable ideas for your ceremony wedding programs:

How cute is this? You can calligraphy words of love on the outside of an envelope, place your wedding ceremony program inside and then hang them by the envelope flaps using satin ribbon that you knot around each chair.  For an inexpensive add-on, you can tuck a single carnation into the knot for each chair sitting directly on the aisle.

If you have standard wedding programs, consider jazzing them up a bit by sewing a simple pocket for them.  You simply measure the length and width of your program, being sure to add another 1/2 inch to the width.  Cut using pinking shears and sew along the sides.  For an added design element, you can sew in a 9-inch length of ribbon to each side creating a hanger and then hang on each ceremony chair.  SUPER CUTE!

OK, I have to be honest with you.  If I were at a wedding with a spread of cookies that looked this yummy, I may squirrel away in the back with my bag full of cookies and miss the entire ceremony!  But how adorable and unique is this idea?  And so simple...just pop your paper bags into the printer and VOILA!

How cute are these little booklets with an envelope of confetti waiting for your guests to toss?  Simply adhere a glassine envelope to the front of your program and fill with adorable confetti goodness and your guests will shower you with colorful bits of paper as you head off to celebrate your new status as husband and wife!

So, as you can see, wedding programs do not have to be boring or typical.  A FABULOUS wedding will always include little details like this to make your wedding memorable and fun for you and your guests.
