Here is a sample program I printed. It's front and back and each guest will get a raffia fan as well.

I LOVE these! The bracelets are so much fun and the earrings and necklace are classic elegance.
Thanks! I wanted so badly to tie in something a little fun into my "outfit" since my dress is silk with no real embellishments. I've been searching high and low for bracelets like this and finally found them!
So pretty! I love the bracelets! I am such a fan of color I still cant decide on jewelry! I keep thinking because of my dress i need to just get simple regular wedding jewelry (pearls and fake diamonds) but I just love vintage and love color so I cant decide! 
My vote is color!! I also have fuschia sandals under my long dress for another pop of fun!

Hahaha, we are totally on the same page as far as our weddings go!!! Hilarious. Although I'm not going to even try to compete with the queen of DIY projects and graphic design (ahem...Megan :) ), we have the same vibe for a lot of our stuff!!! i.e...sentimental but FUN. :) Our programs have the same gist based off of one that I saw on Pinterest. AND apparently we have the same taste in music because I'm walking to Israel's version of "What a Wonderful Life"! It was my grandparent's song...every time i hear it I start to tear up, so I am just hoping I'm not ugly crying down the aisle because of the emotions the song drudges up. How lovely would that be to greet my groom with smeared mascara and snot? Lol. Anyways, I love his music b/c it gives classic songs an island twist. Excellent choice on your song, his over the rainbow version is one of my favorites! Here are our programs and then our Welcome Bag inserts. I'm going to tie the programs together with twine since I used twine in my invitations too. The front of the program is just us, the insides are the order of events and then a "thank you" and the back is an acknowledgment to those that aren't with us (our grandparents and a dear family friend of mine) in addition to a poem my grandfather wrote my grandmother years ago. He was a big time sailor and they had the most incredible love story. He passed away last February, but my grandmother will be there in Mexico, so I was so happy she gave me this poem to incorporate it into our wedding day. The color is a little different on the two inner pieces, but oh well, I'm not going to fret over a pantone number. :) Love love love your programs, Megan. As always, you did a fabulous job and really should look at wedding event planning as a career, my dear. I also LOVE the gist of your wedding, we're definitely on the same wave length :) VIVA LA MEXICO!!! LL LL LL LL Welcome Inserts: LL LL
I LOVE love love your programs and welcome inserts and the fun pictures of you and your fiancé!... Those are great! How incredibly sweet that you have that poem to incorporate!!! I absolutely love the sentiment of that! That's too funny how we are so similar! I absolutely love his version of what a wonderful world as well, and I am also thinking- "I'm either going to have to pick less sentimental songs or only half listen bc if I really let myself completely get into the moment I might not last!! Haha I'll be same as you- a ball of tears and mascara and snot running down my face!! Lol Thank you for the compliments! I really do think I would love wedding panning or something similar with graphic design or something in this field and my FI keeps telling me the same thing! I don't really know how to get started but I think after our wedding ill have more time to look into it more seriously.

This is too cute!! I love it! Seriously your guests are going to love this! 
Thank you!! :)
Super awesome! I love the poem made me cry knowing it was written by your grandfather. So sweet!  Alright you and Megan are starting to make me feel lacking again!!! :) 
Ha! Don't feel lacking! I'm sure your wedding will be perfect and wonderful! :)
Do you have a template for this? 
I made this in picmonkey (picmonkey.com) and once you save it you can't really edit it unfortunately. So no, I don't really have a template. However, I googled "wedding ceremony program" and a ton of this kind of program came up. I had never seen it before but really loved it. I designed mine, but can't take credit for the entire "idea" of the wording, etc. I changed a lot of it to make it more fun and personal, though. I feel like most of the examples I looked at might have had a template, I just didn't use on bc templates drive me nuts. I like to just start fresh with my own thing. I feel like you could find a template for something very similar on google. :) hope this helps!!

Have you guy picked out your ceremony music yet?  What are songs are you using?  I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with the music and the thought of writing a ceremony script.  Maybe I'll just copy Megan's.  :)

Hi Everyone, I'm just finishing my OOT bags this week.. getting a little overwhelmed.  

 

I haven't started programs, menus, welcome cards yet.  Do you have any suggestions where I can design them?  I'm looking for a site or computer software with nice templates.  I bought the groupon for Vistaprint but I didn't find a design that goes with my colors.  I would like to design on my own and print using Vista.  

 

I'm feel so behind!!  

 

Good news is that I am making my guest book and I will use the polaroid pics.  It will be cute!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
