I took it upon myself to create our programs. To create the “guts” of the program, I opted to use Adobe InDesign with the same fonts that have been consistent with all of our wedding things. I waited to complete these until the week before the wedding, after we had the coordinators and priest review it.
For the cover, we used black 8.5″x11″ cardstock that I folded in half with the bone folder.
To spruce it up a bit, I created a white sheet, about half the size, and put our information on the front and our monogram on the back.
I purchased a long stapler from Office Depot for $20 and Mr. H set out to help me create 150 of these babies. I’m not much of a ribbon person, so we opted to go the stapling route.
About 20 programs into the job, Mr. H realized that I suck at stapling, so I was left to fold everything while he stapled them together.
Talk about a time consuming and tedious job! I’m so happy that we did them though; they are exactly what I wanted. Since the cover paper and the “guts” were all the same size, some of the white pages stuck out. Since I happen to work for a printing company, they let me bring them in and they cut them all to be exactly the same size!
