helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

It is getting so close to wedding day (less than 20 days away now) and I had one last DIY project before I hung up my scissors. I decided to make our wedding programs!

Remember when I took on the giant task of making our save the dates?

As much as I loved the project, I knew I wanted something less time consuming, but still equally “us”. So I turned to my old buddy Martha (Stewart for you non-DIYers) for inspiration. On her website I found TONS of programs that I loved and knew I could easily make. I picked the bow programs because I could use my wedding colors and print them myself.

Honestly the most difficult part was formatting and lining up the four columns. After printing them out…

I cut them in half.

Then I took the middle part of my bow…

wrapped it around my program and taped it up.

Easy peasy! I literally made all 200 of them in two nights.

Since this is all about budget-savvy-ness… all of these programs cost me a whopping $15. I got my packs of paper on sale and I had a TON of leftovers which I will for sure use for scrapbooking and making thank you cards. I would definitely urge anyone who has the patience to make your own programs because I really felt like it was a nice relaxing project before the final stretch to the big day.

    Super cute! The best part of it is that there are thousands of different colors and styles of papers so this idea could be easily tweaked to fit any wedding.
