DIY Layered Wedding Programs

Hey everyone!

I'm back! Did you miss me?

As many of you know, my best  friend Aria just got married. And just you wait till I start sharing photographs from her wedding. 

But first, I thought I'd clue you in to the wedding programs I made for her. These are SO easy, inexpensive, and ended up looking wonderful. If you are planning an event, I'd be happy to share the template I made up for these. Just shoot me an email. 

These are a four-tiered program with a cover, ceremony layout, attendant list, and note from the couple. I simply created four different documents in word, made a quick monogram for the cover. Then, we headed to Kinko's where they were able to print two per page, cut them to the appropriate length and punch! All for about $100 (printing included). I'd call that a steal!

I assembled each pre-cut and punched sheet then stacked them in order, I also cut all my twine and got it ready to go for cute bows. Pizza is a must for any project! :)

Stacked and ready. I purchased the twine from the dollar section at Target. 

Here's a finished program...

Then we just cutsified a basket, plopped them in and we were good to go!

And, because everything looks prettier next to flowers...

These were so simple, and looked great with the whole vintagey-garden feel of the wedding. And so inexpensive! I'm happy to share!

I'll share photos of the wedding next!

Come back and see me!
~Kara

These look so cute!! You did an amazing job!! I hope that your sweet friend bought the pizza!

Megan said...

Wow..those are LOVELY!

...and I missed you!

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

Those turned out terrific!! Could you have printed those with your home printer to save even more money?

Hera said...

Aw, yay! Glad to see you got your blogging groove back!

I noticed those programs in your pictures of the wedding and they were my favorite thing. I had no idea you were the brains (and braun) behind it! Although, I should have known given your crafty genius!

Well done!

P.S. Did you know I name dropped you in my last blog post? Just another thank you for helping me. :)

Julia said...

I've always loved layers programs....and twine. Great work!

Mollie said...

I love these programs! I'm a friend of Savannah Eaton's and her mother directed me to your blog to see your program idea and it's just perfect! My sister and I are getting married 6 months apart and we're looking for a "cheaper, do it yourself option" and this would be so perfect. I don't really know how to get the template because I don't know how these blog sites work! :) So, maybe somebody can direct me in the right direction! :) But, these are just too cute!! :)
