You definitely don't need to have them. I am doing one because I am also doing the program fans, but it's not necessary.

okay, good. I thought I was the only one.....hehehe

 

I actually wouldn't mind doing one since I have the time, but I wouldn't know what to put on there.

I'm putting my wedding party and a poem on it. I'm not putting the order of the ceremony, because I don't have anything special planned and quite honestly I don't know what the order is!

We're doing the natural fans, and may print a poem or something to put on them, but no program. I think it really depends on what you want. I also wouldn't know what to put on my program. No attendants, and I think our ceremony will be fairly short.

Here are a couple pics of my fan programs. I only had 14 guests, and we had a total of 3 attendants, but I just loved making DIY projects so I did them anyway. They definitely aren't necessary, although I usually enjoy looking at them when I go to weddings.

The templates for these have already been posted above:

Interesting idea... How long did it take you to make them? We're starting to run a little short on time.

I'll be interested to see your answers to all of the questions above!

1. Where did you get your paper and did you just print the infomration from your computer?
Paper came from Discount Wedding Invitations, Vellum Paper, Vellum Envelopes, Card Stock Source - Paperandmore.com, yes I printed on my home computer

2. How did you cut it so precisely?
Very carefully!

3. Where did you get those little metal things that hold it?
They are decorative brads from Hobby Lobby. I also used them on my invitations and my menus.

4. Is there nothing attaching the papers together? Do they just fan out and the guests just kinda fan it as big or small however they want it?
You got it.

5. Did you just follow how they did it step by step? I saw some cardstock in Michael's that I liked, but I wasn't sure if that's what you used.
I used cardstock for the paper, but for the red sheets I used the fiskars embossing tool to texturize the paper. That was the most time-consuming part.

6. And lastly...what font did you use because it is beautiful?
Hmm...that display is done using Scriptina (the headings) and I actually don't remember what I did for the main wording(I think it looks like Anglina?). This is actually just my mock-up that I posted. For my real programs I used Allegro and Copper Alt Caps Expert.

To all the ladies, how do you get the monigram with the couple's information or initials...I see lots of you have them and I want one too. lol

If you let me know what style of monogram you want, along with your names, dates, colors, etc. I can make you one.

I probably spent a couple nights' worth of evenings in front of the tv making them. But, again, the hard part was embossing the red paper- if I hadn't done that they would have been much easier.

Now the only thing I am a bit confused by is the machine you said you engrossed the red paper with. I have no idea what you are talking about, lol.
Fiskars is a brand-you can find embossing tools at most crafts stores-I like AC Moore for scrapbooking things or you can type in "Fiskars" embossing tool into Ebay and find one. I hadn't seen the fans before, they are awesome Sarah! I think I will be stealing the idea next wink.gif

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
