    Hi All,

     

    I'm not quite done my project (need to sit down with the fiance and pick which one we like best!), but have had so much fun putting this together that I have to share!  I'm planning on doing a welcome letter using vistaprint's rack cards and putting a wedding timeline on the back side.  I loved the pics that I had seen online of these, but couldn't find any free clip art websites until I stumbled across www.clker.com.  There are a ton of different images and you can edit them right on the web!  It's amazing!  It took me a few minutes to work out how the editor works.  Once I discovered that the objects were grouped (like you can in powerpoint), it was much easier.  There are lots of different colour effects that you can do too!

     

    So, here's a few pics of the front side of the welcome card and the wedding time line that will go on the back.  All custom coloured and matching!  Not sure which front I like best... will discuss with FH, but any thoughts?  I'm kinda partial to the bright orange one, but maybe it's too much?

      They look great! And I love your timeline! I'm partial to the second one, I like the orange one too though. These are my colors too! They are gorgeous together!

          I've been working on programs for the wedding too.  Just waiting to show them to FH and see what he thinks!

            I like this too! I've started mine but now I'm wondering if I should have asked the WC at our resort exactly how the timelines usually go? ...like your has a signing of the registrar... Should I add it?

              Thanks!  Yeah, my timeline is a bit of a guess at the moment.  Still need to nail that down with our coordinator.  And the order of the ceremony I just copied off of someone else's program!  I have to take a look at our script and see exactly what we're doing.  I think it's pretty typical to have the signing of the register, but definitely not necessary.  I'd say, if you have space, add it - if not, just leave it.  

               

              Would love to see what yours looks like when you're done!

                these are my VERY rough drafts. Im thinking instead of the teal bow on the front doing raffia instead. not sure yet though :/ I printed this out on regular cardstock and voila! lol. I have it set on our raffia fans as it will be at the ceremony.

                  It looks awesome!!  I see we were both inspired by the same program posted on Weddingbee!  Yours are super cute.  I like that they're less formal.  Might have to show FH to see if he likes that style better.  I like the idea of a raffia bow... especially if you'll have them on raffia fans.

                    I did find the template on wedding bee! I LOVE that it is less formal. I wasn't looking for your average churchy type program. We are young and fun, and already doing things a bit "different" . I'm leaning toward the raffia bow myself, thNks for your input! I always appreciate a little help on these things!
