DIY Ceremony Programs

My mom has three sisters, and all of them were actively involved in the the wedding planning. It is because of them that I was able to be pretty hands-off (which was great while I was super busy finishing grad school/looking for apartments/being supportive while Alson applied for law schools/moving/etc.).

For example, the three sisters, my mom, and grandmother all got together a couple weeks ago (so sad I couldn't be there) to put together our programs. With a little card stock, ribbon, and a printer, they were able to make these:

Which, if you remember from this post, match our invitations:

And yes, they basically made the programs they were much, much cheaper than the invitations, or having them professionally printed. All that had to be bought from the manufacturer were the little cards to go on front, everything else you could find in a craft store.


  1. Why did I not know that Alson was applying (or going) to law school? Where is he applying? Richie loves GW so far (since you asked).

  2. Hey.. I just randomly found your blog and started reading.

    I'm a school psychologist myself (graduated from Tufts two years ago) in the D.C. metro area (MD).

    Are you still in school and/or did you find a job yet?

    I may need to keep reading! =]

  3. Oh they are cute. So pretty I love pink and black. That is what family is for at this time. To do all that for you so you don't have to.

  4. Oh, duh, sorry I just realized that you weren't actually posting right now. Regardless, I saw that you are working in PG county next year. You are a brave girl =]

    I was offered a job there last year after my internship, but I decided to stay in the county that I interned in, because I loved it so much. If you have any questions about PG and/or the area just email me (it's on my blog). I just went through this process two years ago myself and my county is right next door.
