Unique and Fun Program idea

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I wasnt sure I wanted a program but I knew I wanted a Palm fan on the chairs for my ceremony but when I was reviewing the size of the palm fans, I decided it wasnt something I had room to travel with in my already over loaded luggage LOL so I came up with the idea of multi purpose programs that would also serve as fans. When I was sharing the idea with friends and lovely brides on the Canadian Brides thread and got such great feedback, I thought I should share with everyone so other brides looking for inspiration ideas might find something special in this....so here goes :)

 

I printed everything on white 100lb Cover stock. So basically a thicker card stock. (so they wouldnt be flimsy when used as a fan) I then cut and assembled them with a chicago screw. You could also use brads but i find the screws more solid and the pages move more easily.

 

 I hope you enjoy! msnwink.gif

 

In Order:

 

Front Cover:

First 3 pages (blocked out to cover some names :) The 1st page is the members of the bridal party, officant, and parents of bride and groom) The 2nd page and 3rd page are the order of events listing readings and sand cermony etc

A Special Note to our guests and wedding party. This says:

we canâ€t thank you enough for being here to share in one of the most important days in our life. This experience wouldnâ€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 canâ€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!

A note to our parents. This says:

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 canâ€t thank you enough. We love you with all our hearts.

Sand Ceremony. This 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.

Thanks YWS...You can always use the idea for something other then a program....maybe for your welcome Kit in your OOT bag :) or I saw you write on anudrm thread that you may return your fans

 

I will definitely post some more of my other stuff. I have SOO many pics on my camera to go through LOL

Yes anudrm did a great job re-inventing the template to her own. These were actually created these in photoshop? Do you have photoshop? you can PM your info and i can send you the PDF i created and you can convert the layers to your own style in Photoshop. Otherwise you could always just re-invent the idea in publisher or which ever program you use. I'd be glad to help. I can send you dimensions and some other stuff. I have the text in a word document as well.

 

The name of the font is carpenter

LOL try fanning yourself with them and if your 65lb is solid enough then you should be okay :) i wouldnt get fans with these it would somewhat defeat the purpose. your program design from my template looks great! keep them fanned out on the chairs and it will look so pretty!

They do look wonderful, and No I will not buy the raffia fans. Although, I will see if I can invest in some 100lb paper, just to see the difference, then I'll go from there.  Maybe I'll do a Michael's run on my break.

Thanks for the font info, Janet! I love it!

 

How many panels did you put on each 8.5x11 sheet? I'll probably just design in word, since it's what I'm most comfortable with.
