DIY: What to say on a Wedding Program

Clients are always overwhelmed with their programs. What do they say? How do they say it? It is a lot of text and organization for sure! I thought it would be helpful to post a sample so that you could take what you need, fill in your details and be a lot less stressed about it.

Here is a program I created for my lovely client Katherine. The format is useful because it uses both sides of a standard 8.5 x 11" piece of cardstock. The program is printed on both sides and folded down the middle. No ribbons, bows or assembly hassles which is a bonus when you're so close to your wedding date. You need to be primping your beautiful self, not tying bows on 100 programs!

A tip on program quantities: You don't need a program for every guest. Most couples will only take one and share it. If you expect 150 guests, you may only need 100-125 programs. Tragic true story: I put a lot of effort into my programs (bows, special assembly etc) and made enough for one per guest, only to see the huge basket still filled with programs after the wedding was over. All the late nights of laborious assembly gone to waste...don't let that happen to you. ;o)
