Inspiration: Wedding Programs

April 12, 2012

These days, weddings are intense. There’s such an emphasis on DIY, vintage details, and unique color combos. When my parents were married, you picked the church, had a little cake, and got in the car and headed off into wedded bliss. Sounds perf.

There is so much inspiration out there for today’s bride. When I was married, there wasn’t anything like Pinterest, Craftgawker, or any wedding blogs. Blogs weren’t popular and Martha Stewart mags were all we had. I still spend hours looking through different details from different weddings. One thing I absolutely love is seeing how differently styled the programs are.

These gorge programs are made from brown lunch bags. Amazing, right? I used bags similar to this for Christmas treats last year, but this idea is genius. Bags via Under Consideration. Read on to see a few of my faves.

A little burlap can really make your day special. These gorgeous little bags were spotted on Intimate Weddings.

Are you getting married? Making your programs yourself? We’d love to hear about it!

          Hi Chera! To print, just tape the bags to some 8.5 x 11 paper and run through your printer! You can always carve a stamp or buy one that is custom made and stamp each bag individually. It can be costly to use your printer! Hope that helps! Email me if you have any questions –
