    Janet- I love your program fans awesome job!!!! And such a great idea 2 in 1!

     

    Camy- I got mine at best buy awhile ago, but that is where I get most of our electronics! You could always check flyers and see if any are on sale too.

        Janet, I love your program fans!  do you have a pic of the text or a template you could share?  I am not sure exactly what I want to include in programs. I was thinking of skipping them...but I like yours better than the flower petal shaped ones I have seen!

          WOW! I LOVE these.  I have seen program fans before but these are by far the nicest I have seen!!!! I have to ask what font your names are in on the back of your programs?  These are so so nice.  Something I crossed off my DIY list that now I want to add back on!!!!

          I really wanted palm fans but as much as i loved them, we dont have room to bring 35 palm fans so i decided to have my program multi purpose as a fan and make them myself.....

           

          comments/opinions?

            I'm going to try a few things tonight...i was thinking of attaching a small pink ribbon at the bottom with a little organza bag (white) that would have a couple of seashells in it for our shell ceremony. I want to see what it looks like first though.  i dont want to take away from the fans/programs

            Are you attaching some ribbon to them too?

            I dont I would ever have patience to do that :D 

             



             


            My best friend (also my man of honor) is a graphic designer so he templated it for me in photoshop. I input all the info. I will definitely share a closer image of the individual cards....actually better yet i will just upload the file for you. I will do it from home tonight as i dont have access to the file from my work laptio :)...and thank you! a lot of work to put them together but i'm thinking it was worth it

            Awesome Job! 

             



             


            walmart actually sells them pretty cheap....i bought one the other day for the ceremony music for my resort since i keep all my music on my iphone which doubles as my ipod

            Thank you! no problem, when i get home tonight I will upload the file so you can see the text and design up close :) I have never seen the flower petal ones?

            awwwwwwww Thanks Tori. I wasnt sure i wanted a program either but because i wanted fans but didnt want to lug the palm fans i figured this would be a good compromise. I'm happy with the feedback so i will invest the time it will take to complete them :) My best friend is a graphic designer so he actually purchased the font for me....i cant remember what its called. I will check at home where i have the file (i'm at work). If you are considering something like this the binding is a "chicago screw" you can find them in any hardware store. They are similar to the screws you would use in a scrapbook.

            If you really dont care I would say check out ebay or kijiji and pick up a used one for nothing.  Another option is Costco has them often for a little bit less than elsewhere and walmart and just about anywhere sells them now.  Just get a small one if you aren't planning to be a big ipod user (I dont have one anymore, FI has his... I just dont use it the same as I used to) and then you'll save yourself some money!!

              Hi Ladies

               

              I couldnt upload the final file to bdw because its WAY too big of a file! so i cropped up the pics i had taken. Some of them arent clear so i will list the text for you :) I print 2 up on an 8.5 x 11 sheet and i print with crop marks so its easier to cut and i can make sure they are all the same size, then i cut! there are 10 pieces total including the front and back cover so its 5 printed sheets total per program. I use a heavier weight cover stock paper as well. then i hole punch (the hoel is also printed so i punch the same spot everytime lol) and then i assemble with the chicago screw.

              if you have any other questions i'd be glad to help

               

              in order:

              page 5 is a letter to our guests and wedding party...it says:

              To our guests; we can’t thank you enough for being here to share in one of the most important days in our life. This experience wouldn’t be the same without your presence and support. It means so much that you have travelled so far to share in these moments with us. We can’t express our gratitude enough!

              A special thank you to our wedding party; you have showed us so much love and support and our wedding experience has been wonderful because of each and every one of you. Your support and love will never be forgotten and we know we have lifetime friends in all of you. We love you all!

               

              Page 6 a note to our parents...its says:

              To our parents; there are no words to express our love and thanks. We are here today because of you. You taught us to love and respect and the morals it takes to build a solid foundation in a relationship which will lead to a lifetime of love in our marriage. For that, we can’t thank you enough. We love you with all our hearts.

                

              page 7 an explanation about the sand ceremony...it says:

              Each container represents the separate journeys we once were on. They also represent our own sets of friends and families; that until today were apart from each other.

              When we will blend the sand together, it represents all our lives joined as one. Our once solitary journeys have become one of companionship, as they set forth on a single path together into our future. Our friends and family are as one as well. We will now share those who are a part of our lives as we walk hand-in-hand along the path of our marriage.
