Even though you downloaded a template from your computer, on the Internet, or something that you simply wrote, your wedding program has to be unique and open to various ideas and concepts. From a formal black-tie affair to a wedding program for a fantasy theme, you should let your imagination run free.
Make a mental plan of what are going to do. You then create a simple draft of the wedding program. This will make it easier for you to the final draft. A sample of how you would begin your draft would be to answer a few questions such as where and how do you want the text to look or where do you want to put your photos-should they be on the front, inside the cover or at the back cover. It is a good idea to leave the back cover of the wedding program free so that you can have it as a sort of Thank you section. As soon as you have sorted these out, you might be thinking of doing the finishing touches and the lettering. These would have to wait.
You need to be consistent with your wedding program. Consistency creates a very needed solemn effect to a wedding program. Let’s say that you want to invite people with a “RJ and Nadya Joy would like to cordially invite you to attend their granddaughter’s wedding,” the wedding program should be similar to it. It’ll be something like “RJ and Nadya Joy welcome you to their granddaughter’s wedding.” If somebody has paid for the cocktail and reception, the back cover will have an acknowledgement section reserved for your patrons. You have to remember that you are planning a wedding program. These are one of the important things in a wedding program.
You have thought of a theme and you should stick to it. If you’re planning on having an elegant and formal wedding such as a setting in one of the scenes in Phantom of the Opera, the wedding guests should have a slight gist of the theme and, although it is not necessary, they will have be prepared to know what to wear to that effect. Another thought would be to use a similar presentation as shown in the opera on the wedding program. You can also play a similar music as it was played in the opera or something similar to provide an ambiance suitable for the wedding theme.
What you need to create is a wedding program that shows the importance of the sincerity of the purpose of the program as well as your sense of innovation. A wedding is one of the most important event in the lives of the bride and groom. It may sound extravagant to others but it quite important for you as the wedding planner and for the hosts as well. The wedding program have to be planned properly.
