Wedding programs are a staple in any ceremony, so why not spice them up a bit? Straying just a bit from the traditional route is okay, and can even be a refreshing change for guests sitting in those pretty pews. Since your programs set the tone for the rest of your Big Day, get your guests’ attention early, and then ‘wow’ them the rest of the night! We did some searching and found some adorably fun program ideas we’re pretty crazy about:
This is an adorable program from Bridal Guide that we just love. It opens like a book, and has a pocket on the inside for a tissue. Not only is it completely unique, but useful, too! Font and color is up to you so it can be completely customized.
Okay, confetti?! This idea is fun, and can even be a DIY project. We found it on Bespoke Bride! Have your guests ready to throw out that confetti as you walk down the aisle as Mr. + Mrs. – can you imagine how cute those pictures would be?
Another easy to do DIY project. Get your groom involved, and start rolling! Aisle Perfect shared this beautiful inspiration on their website, and we are really hoping one of our brides wants to try this out soon. Some yarn would work just as well as the ribbon, and this scroll is sure to be a hit!
A chalkboard is perfect for an outdoor or an indoor wedding, and brides.com agrees. It is so versatile and can be used at your reception site as well. This is a really great alternative to programs for our budget conscious (and/or environment conscious) brides! It would be a cute keepsake for you to keep after the wedding as well.
With all of our spring and summer weddings gearing up, we love to point our brides who are dreaming of an outdoor wedding to the fan program. It gets HOT down in Alabama, so we know that wedding guests greatly appreciate a program that doubles as a cooling system. Order yours from Paper & Lace on Etsy, or look up the hundreds of DIY options!
Weddings are all about celebrating your and your groom, so it has to be fun! Incorporating unique touches like these programs will have your guests ready to enjoy the night. We’d love to hear any ideas you have!
