Gettin' with the Program

Considering the we're getting married NEXT weekend (yikes!), I figure it's about time that I start working on our programs. Last weekend (in addition to hair and makeup trials, finishing the aisle runner and stocking up on OOT bag goodies) I did just that.

With a couple of fabulous inspiration examples to work from, I set to designing a pocket-sized program that would fit right in with our silhouette-sprinkled wedding details. Here are the images that got my creative juices flowing.




If the second two photos look familiar, there's good reason. They are the amazing accordion-fold programs designed by the very talented Mrs. Cupcake! I've taken a little bit from each style and combined them into something that will be perfect for the Yorkie wedding.

Using the free trial of Adobe InDesign (see Miss Bunny's how-to), I laid out the front cover and four-paneled accordion-fold inside. Here's a sneak peek of what our guests will receive as they arrive at the ceremony. The covers will be flat printed on cream colored cardstock by the same wonderful little shop that handled our DIY invitations. I'll laser print the inside panels on 11" x 17" paper (two "strips" to a page) and assemble them with Mr. Y's help by the end of this week. Fingers crossed! :o)

The fuchsia border will be in the same ink color as the accents from our invitations and the open area in the middle will feature a sweet little khaki ribbon closure. I'll be sure to share more about the assembly process as it begins.

Have you mixed and matched inspiration sources to come up with a perfect detail for your wedding?
