Wedding Recap – programs

I’ll never forgot a wedding program for a wedding I was a bridesmaid for about 12 years ago.  She had included a little blurb about the wedding party.

I loved it for 2 reasons:

1.            It gave everybody something to read while they were waiting for the ceremony.

2.            Sometimes, especially if you are ONLY  friend of the bride or the groom (not both), it help answers questions like, “who are those super attractive people standing up there?!?”

I’m a little embarrassed, but I think I made the program within a month of getting engaged.  It’s like the firs thing I did!  Our wedding party was small, and locked in right away, so that helped.

I had a lot of fun creating it and embarrassing the wedding party at the same time!

It’s just printed on a normal 8.5X11 piece of paper, and folded in half.  I have a color printer, but if you don’t, color copies are pretty darn cheep at FexEx or even a library.  Fancy think paper may have been nice, but who cares?  Ribbon on it would’ve been nice, but why spend the money on something that everybody is just going to spill beer on at the reception and then immediately throw away.

I was pretty proud of the back of the program (the left part below).  I used my limited photoshop skills and a greeting card that I found with Chris’ deceased mom’s handwriting.  Notice the stamp on the postcard is the breast cancer ribbon and the fake postmark says ‘Saturday’.
