Finally finished the ceremony programs and they look amazing, if I do say so myself. A few trial and errors getting the font and sizing just right but other than that, piece of cake. I know most people think programs unnecessary, but I just love them. They add something extra and since no one has ever been to a wedding here with a program, I think people will appreciate them. To save on the 'unnecessary' cost, I only did a few and printed them at home.
After I finished the programs, I decided to tackle the seating chart and escort cards. I always wanted to do something unique for my escort cards, not just the same tent folded cards that you see at every wedding. However, my unique idea had to be cost effective. My original idea was very cute but logistically time consuming. The idea came to me to use the left over Popsicle sticks as my escort cards. Not only is the idea unique, but it was FREE and easy.
One side has the guest's name, the other side has the table number. Genius. Side note, the seating chart was not as hard a I feared, although it was not as easy as I thought either.
I was on a roll so I decided to go ahead and knock off a few more items off my do to list. I needed to wrap up the attendants gifts, so I decided to get the items I needed to do that. I spent like $3. I got construction paper to make my gift boxes (a simple tutorial on you tube... about 15 minutes to make 5). I also got wrapping paper and tape.
Gift box all packed... and tied with yarn. ready for my bridesmaid.

The pink bag holds my daughter's flower girl gift: 2 headbands, one with rhinestones, the other with a flower. Also didn't get a picture of my son's socks, but they're in there too, wrapped in the same paper as the groomsmen.
