    Hi,

    I am UNDER The gun to say the least!! I need to get inexpensive menu's and programs done...I have looked at templates but can't really find just what I want and now I am short on time to do them myself. Any ideas?

      We got a great deal on a boxed invitation set at Michaels(Brides was the brand). We just messed around with the template you get off of their website and made up a menu and printed them out on a printer. We had to do them 5 at a time since it was on cardstock and we had to make 50 but it saved a TON of time and money and they looked incredible.

      Sure we didnt need the RSVP cards or envelopes since we weren't using them but we have extra pretty notecards and envelopes now lol.

        Danielle, you could check Michael's or Target if you still want to try to DIY.
        If you want a company to do them you could try wedding paper divas (they're having a sale that might help)
        menus
        Wedding Menus at Wedding Paper Divas

        programs
        Wedding Programs from Wedding Paper Divas

        Here's an Etsy seller that customizes yours (with her existing template) & sends you the pdf to print at home. She has a couple cute ones.

        Another seller that has her own templates (that she customizes) & you print them at home

        I saw this place while searching too but I didn't look around on the site.
        Wedding Programs and Wedding Program Templates

        Do you definitely want to have programs & menu cards? We didn't have either and no one missed them.

            We decided to scrap the programs and menus. I made a brochure for the welcome bags with vistaprint. Guests can use that as a momento of the wedding.

            I'm getting table numbers and postcard guestbook sign from Decadent Designs She also does escort cards, programs, menus.

                I am doing Michaels for my invites, Menu's and programs. All you need is a computer and printer.

                Also if you by the Martha Steward Bridal Magazine they have a 20% off the ENTIRE order coupon. My FI was really really happy about this. Its going to save us a lot of money. Plus we are going to add our own touches to embellish the invites....wax seals and such. Makes it easier to splurge on the things that are more important to me like the photographer.

                      Well....I looked at every suggestion...I could not find any templates I liked for my wedding. If I liked it...it was for a Mac. I do not have a color printer. I had not the first clue as to what paper to buy...how to line it up..etc. So....I finally did what I should have done months ago...asked my cousin's hubby who is BEYOND talented and a designer and artist and who created my shower and bachelorette invites to do them.....two days ago!!! LOL.

                      He just sent me a proof and I am ECSTATIC!!! I keep telling him to go on Etsy but he likes to keep his clientel small. So....I am soooo happy right now.
