So its getting down to that time to start thinking about the finer details of your wedding, and one of those details is your wedding program. Now, traditional programs may be wonderful but the creativity and personality that couples are bringing into their programs is just flat-out awesome!! This is a great way to enlist your artsy side and include tiny details about you and your fiancé to give every one of your guests a little insight to you as a couple. Whether you want to go funky, colorful or natural, creative wedding programs can be for any type of wedding.
Great for outdoor ceremonies is the fan-style. You’re killing two birds with one stone—making an awesome wedding program and ensuring your guests will stay as cool as a cucumber! I love the programs that add “fun facts” or timelines as to how you two got to that alter. Most of your close family and friends will know the basics, but it is interesting for them and all guests to know a few life-changing moments in your journey like the first date, first “I love you”s and proposal. This keeps everyone involved! For that extra-ambitious bride out there, here’s an interactive handmade program that lets your creative and hardworking side shine! Moveable wheels allow bits and pieces of the program be displayed as the wheels turn. Bravo, bride!

Although this is a bit of a splurge for programs, it can most definitely be a sentimental keepsake! Artists on Etsy are offering their skills to make your wedding program very true in its representation of the wedding party—each member is drawn with their own personal characteristics like hair color, height, glasses, hats, etc. Ideal for a smaller wedding party, it gives guests a better idea of attendants and lets your wedding party know how truly important they are to your big day. If you’re looking to get showered with some kind of lovin’ after the ceremony, consider one of these types of wedding programs! There are many areas in your wedding in which you could add a flair of creativity and I think the wedding program is a brilliant place to do it! It lets you give true character to how the ceremony will be and allows room for some fun, personal details of the time you and your fiancé have shared. There are tons of ideas and artists out there willing to make your dream program so start brainstorming for yours!
