Wedding Wednesday: Have A Little Fun With Your Programs!

We’ve all been to weddings where everything is running late and you’re sitting in the sun, waiting for the bride to walk down the aisle.  I’m super crazy about being on time, but even the ceremony at my wedding ran a little behind.  I felt a little less guilty, though, knowing that our programs gave guests something to do.

Check out what I mean…

The front of our program was pretty run-of-the-mill.  We had the names of everyone that was participating in the ceremony, and a run-down of what was going to happen.

But the back of the program was a customized crossword puzzle that Travis and I built to reflect our big day and our relationship! We had our names in there, the names of cities we’d lived in together, and different “wedding” words (bride, groom, etc…)

We tied mini pencils to each one so guests weren’t fumbling around for something to write with, and because it was on a stick, it made a nice fan as well!

We got the template for the crossword and all the instructions here, and they turned out to be pretty darn easy to make.

What do you think of our programs?  Have you been to a wedding where the programs were a little out of the ordinary?  Stumbled onto other cute ideas?  Share your thoughts in the comments!
