The Programs

This is the look that I'm going for....

(Shamelessly stolen from Etsy- please don't catch me and arrest me).



I love it, but I know that I can do it cheaper so I'm going to do it myself. I made my own save the dates and I'm receiving calls left and right about how they are "the best save the dates anyone has ever seen." Okay, obviously my friends and family are so totally biased, but I'm going to go with it and hope that their enthusiasm does not waiver.

To make sure that they come out okay, I'm going to start them now, seven months ahead of time. I ordered the cardstock online, in bulk. I bought a gold leaf metallic for the book, a deep plum for the small square, and an ecru colored paper for our monogram (the monogram is champagne and deep plum). My mom rocks and already made ours in photoshop!

So, for the next seven months I'm going to print out the monograms, glue them to the deep plum paper, and glue those to the gold metallic paper. I'll punch the holes, buy the perfect ribbon, and then wait until the week before the wedding to add the pages with our actual ceremony information.

You may call me crazy. I like to call it efficient.

I adore the look of booklet programs. They look so nice. Here is a link to the person that did my invites and papergoods: http://handmadebyallison.blogspot.com/

It really helped with figuring out how I wanted things to look.
