Here is the link to the slideshow as well. You have to install a plug in to view it so it's not the easiest thing in the world. If you have a Mac (like I do) it will not work. So you can imagine what I was going through when I got the link and couldn't watch it.
Beautiful pics.. I tried to go into the link you provided. Is there a password??

For the programs we bought the fans from Oriental Trading Co. and the ribbon from Michael's (out of the clearnce section for $.25 each!). We wrapped the handles in ribbon and used a small hole punch and some more ribbon to attach the program to the fan. Besides my fingers being a little stiff after wrapping all the fan handles it was a very easy project.
For the menu cards basically the same thing printed the text on the cards and then bought some green metallic paper to dress it up a little. We used double-sided tape to attach the menu cards to the paper. It came out better than the glue. We used a little ribbon to attach the name cards to the menus. The name cards were 3 different kinds of paper. We printed the names on the leftover beige cards that we had and cut them out. We used double-sided tape to put them all together and then a small hole punch to put the ribbon through. I reccomend using an Xacto knife because it made the cut paper look a lot cleaner than scissors.
We bought out OOT bags for $.99 each from cheaptotes.com and iron on transfer paper from Staples. My husband designed the logo that we used on everything. Oh and you notice I say we, because i had him tying ribbons and cutting paper too. I was not about to do all that by myself!
I got all of my ideas from this forum. You can get a lot of good ideas from these ladies. My husband wanted to get rid of the internet because everytime I would get on the forum I would see a new great idea and want to do it.

I was like hey, she's on the BDW board. I have a quick question, where did you get all your materials for the programs and menus, etc? I want to make them myself and I love what you did. Also, your OOT bags, where did you get those? I am going to use you as an inspiration, I really like what you did. Congratulations again!!! Did you book the steal band for your reception as well?
