    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!


    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 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!

    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 can’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.

    Two hands will join together on their special day and look at each other and say I DO on April 14 2012 in Montego Bay Jamaica

                I thought this was such a great idea.  I've decided to buy white, orange or teal fans (my colours), and stamp our program onto them.  I found this really neat way to stamp it on (a friend is really into crafting).  There are these clear plastic blocks you can buy at michaels, and really small lettered stamps.  I've bought two sets of the stamps so I have enough for repeat letters, and stamp it onto the fans.  I did this for name cards for the guests as well.  I"ll attach some pictures when I get a chance. 


                Thanks for the idea,
