Weddings can get very expensive. You can spend so much on things that you would rather not spend much money on, because you would like to have a really nice reception hall, or a really expensive wedding dress. There are lots of ways that you can cut costs at a wedding. One way is to make things yourself. Let’s look at some ways to make your own wedding program crafts. Wedding programs are something that you will have to make a lot of and so it is best if you can make them as beautiful as you want them, without spending a ton of money.
If you are a paper crafter, this is your opportunity to show off your skills. First, design your program. Type everything up on your home computer. You can print out one copy and then take it to your local copy store. If you have a nice printer that doesn’t take up a lot of ink, then just use it instead. Copying it at a printer will make it look much nicer. Plus, they usually have any kind of paper you could ever think of. Find which one you absolutely love. They also have vellum so you can print part of it on that.
Don’t just make the program something you print out, but add to it. Get ribbon. In craft stores there are hundreds of different kinds of ribbon. Pick which one goes with your theme and colors. If you can’t find one you love, go to a different store. They all carry different kinds, they will be slightly different, but they are still different.
Also add embellishments. You can add all sorts of different things. There is a ton of selection in craft stores. You can use brads or eyelets or stickers. Remember you want it to look nice and professional so only extremely nice stickers, and probably ones that stick out and don’t even really look like stickers will work.
You can also print quotes on the program. You can use vellum sheets for the quotes or have the quotes on stickers or rub ons. There is a ton of selection. You can even print off your own quote or make your own.
Don’t forget about die cuts. If you have a die cut machine it is perfect. You can cut out a picture of a bride and groom or just a simple wedding symbol. Use everything that you can but don’t go over board. It will look like you were trying way too hard and will end up looking horrible.
Design one first and then show your mom or your future husband. He will want to be included in some of the preparations most likely and so ask him what he thinks. Remember, it’s his big day too.
Wedding programs are something that should look nice and yet not overdone. They can be simple and be the most lovely things you will ever see. Make sure that your programs reflect you and your special day.
