{DIY Wedding Programs}

April 3, 2012

Andrew and I searched high and low for Programs to use at our wedding. The only ones I found that I truly loved were super expensive (surprise!). So I started digging around and found an image from a wedding in California and thought maybe I could recreate the program. I got close and everyone really loved our programs so I thought I would share them with you! Hey I figure why not share the love right? I’ve included the Word Doc I used to make the programs. Yes I used Word and not Photoshop (holding my head down in shame), but I just found myself printing from Word so it was just easier. At any rate, I used 5.5 x 7.5 white card stock I purchased from Michael’s, printing on the front and back. AND I didn’t even use an entire color cartridge on this. Pretty impressive huh.

Download the Wedding Program template in Word

Front of the Program

Back of the Program

If you want to use this for your wedding, feel free to edit at your leisure. Also, if you have any questions, go ahead and send me an email or leave me a comment, I’m more than happy to help out.

Happy DIY’ing!

I love this, but I can’t get it to print porperly on a 5.5X7.5 and I can’t find anywhere that can print it.

Kallie Schutte July 30, 2016 at 5:59 pm

Im having the same problem. It prints perfectly on the back but doesnt print correctly on the front. Have you figured anything out with it by chance?

I used your template for my wedding programs and they turned out super cute! But… after I got them all printed, cut and ribbons tied my sister-in-law pointed out that ‘newlyweds’ is misspelled. You may want to correct that so that future brides don’t have a typo on their programs. I didn’t notice it because it wasn’t anything I had to edit but it’s too late to correct them now :-/

I can’t figure out how to download the template to safe my life, HELP thank you in advance

I love, love, love this program! Perfect!! How many did you print out using just the one cartridge? I’m just trying to get an idea of what I will be looking at when purchasing my supplies. And also, I saw you used 5.5 x 7.5 card stock. Would using a 5 x 7 be a mistake? I don’t want everything to shift.

First off, I want to say how much we love this design!

We edited our information into it but when we printed it everything shifted over to the middle of the page. We are using the recommended size paper. Can you help us?

Leann August 25, 2015 at 1:24 pm

So I just found this and LOVE it! However, I’m having the same problem with the first page editing. It is not allowing me to “ungroup” to change the names…can anyone help a pretty pitiful computer user? haha I would appreciate it!!

Thanks

YOU ARE AMAZING! After hours of searching I came across your program template and it was exactly what I was looking for. And it was FREE. And it was in WORD… Thank you so much for sharing, you really are a life saver!

Reply

kklatt July 14, 2015 at 11:27 pm

thank you SO, SO much for the program templates!! you are a life-saver. I am acting as wedding coordinator for my sweet niece and love the fun, cute program, but like you – found it very expensive to buy. I knew I could do it in Word (no hanging your head needed – I’m with you!) but also knew it would take me alot of time to work it out. God bless you for doing it!! yippeee!!! thanks so much!

This is so awesome of you !! I had all my programs done and paid way to much for them but it was worth it at the time!!! UNTIL unexpected changes had to be made:( now we have to redo all of our programs! This is SAVING our BUTS :)
Just one questions – First page where it says you will hear songs chosen by Megan & Andrew.. I am unable to change the names? Only part of it that will not allow us to . Any suggestions ?

Thank you again !! :)

Hi Megan,

I love your template, thank you very much for sharing it. I am not able to move the text boxes on the second page – is the second page set up differently than the first page?? Thanks for your assistance.

Heather June 18, 2015 at 9:32 pm

Billie – right click and select, “ungroup”

The second page has all of its elements grouped together. :)

I just want to say thank you for posting this! Your programs are adorable!! I’m thinking of doing something similar but making them into program fans since we are getting married in July. I have a questions for you, though. I need to print mine on gray cardstock instead of white, which I cannot find in the 5.5 x 7.5 size anywhere! Any suggestions on how I can size it down? I think I may have found some gray cardstock that is 5×7, which is close!!
Thanks for all your help!! :-)

Reply

themcbaileys May 27, 2015 at 3:34 pm

Well aren’t you sweet Chelsie! Thank YOU for stopping by AND for your kind words!!

Hmmmm sizing them down might be a total PITA b/c everything in Word will shift (esp 1/2in on either side). I wish I could be of more help. 5.5 x 7.5 is pretty standard for cardstock, but maybe not in the gray. Eeeek!

GOOD LUCK!!!!

Hi! I just found this program on pinterest and I am absolutely obsessed with it!! I can’t wait to adjust it to fit my own information. You did such a great job!
I tried downloading it but the full program doesn’t actually download for me. Could you email it to me instead? That may fix the problem.

Hello,

Thank you so much for sharing this :-) I downloaded the template and input all my information. But for some reason when I try and inout the groomsmen names it give me an ” error” message and clicks out of the template! Am I doing something wrong? or is it because I’m using a MAC?

Reply

themcbaileys January 14, 2015 at 1:52 pm

I have NO idea Traci! It could be a word compatibility issue? This was designed in Word 2003 – is that it perhaps?? Wish I could be of more help!! Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you so much! The program is wonderful and lighthearted. We are getting married in Vegas, this is a perfect template for us, can’t wait to put our personal touches on it. Like yourself, I could not find one that is fun and lighthearted. Thank you again, for helping brides to be like me a stress free wedding planning. One less thing we (I) have to worry about.

Thank you for sharing this. We all know how costly everything can add up to and not many are willing to share their inexpensive ideas.

I have a question as to what fonts you used? They changed when I opened the document.

Reply

themcbaileys January 6, 2015 at 8:08 pm

Hey Terri! No problem. I used a whole slew of them, here’s a few I can remember off the top of my head: Lucidia, Cambria, Calibri, Gothic Pro, and Mincho Pro. Lawwwd, that was a lot!!

Thank you so much for sharing your Program layout in Word!
I have been searching and searching for a suitable program layout/idea. When I found yours I loved it. it’s witty and keeps the interest of the reader. I updated the paper size to 4.25 x 11 so I can use the brown kraft sheets I have and cut them in half long ways to get two programs per sheet. I had a little extra room on the back so I added a fun game to the bottom too.
Thank you thank you!

Hi megan!
How did you get these to print? I had a hard time finding the correct paper size (5.5×7.5) so we were going to try to print on regular paper and fold them. Any tips on print settings? when i changed the setting to landscape, it messed with the formatting. Please help!! Thanks, PS THANK YOU for putting up this program!! I LOVE IT!
Chau

Reply

themcbaileys July 10, 2014 at 11:27 am

Hey Chau –

You’d have to adjust your printer settings to whatever size paper you are using. This is the cardstock I found at Michael’s and I used for printing. So it’s going to be a custom paper size for printing. You won’t be able to use any standard size printing. Definitely don’t change to Landscape b/c it will totally reformat the whole thing. That help?

Hugs,
Megan :)

Reply

Mollie May 26, 2014 at 3:37 pm

These are amazing, thank you! It was really easy to change out the information, and then the colors to match ours. Just a little FYI on the printer settings for others, the paper size is custom. You just need to add the width (5.5 inches) and the height (7.5 inches) under the paper settings and they’ll come out perfect. Printing the fronts, then the backs was definitely easier too. I was beginning to freak out about getting programs done, and these are the best. Thank you!

I figured it out! All of the text boxes on the 2nd page were “grouped”. I had to “ungroup” them before I could make any adjustments to the size and/or location of the boxes. Thank you so much for your reply.

Thanks also for the awesome template! I love that you were willing to share all your hard work! I was going to order a template from Etsy because I absolutely do not have time to do this from scratch. You saved me and probably so many others lots of $$!

Really? What version of word are you using? What size paper?

Look forward to hearing from ya!

Reply

Niikki February 25, 2014 at 8:06 pm

I am using word 2007 and the size paper I think it is called A4 or A5. It is the size of a half sheet of paper. I have tried printing with the size in 2007 set to A5, but it goes off to the side. You template… prints perfectly in the middle to a full sheet of paper, but the minute I put in that paper it prints it off to the side.

Reply

themcbaileys February 27, 2014 at 11:35 am

Oh dear – I’m not sure. Maybe perhaps ensure that the paper layout is set to the appropriate size for both creation and printing? I wish I could help more!

Sorry!

themcbaileys February 25, 2014 at 2:51 pm

Hey Amanda –

Yes, I did too! So to remedy that, I printed all of front side side first, THEN printed all of the back side next (using the ones that were already printed on the front). Does that make sense?

Thank you so so much for sharing this!! My fiancé and I have been searching for an inexpensive program for our wedding and like you said some of them are outrageous and we also didn’t want the traditional streamlined programs either. I stubbled across your on pinterst and we both love it!! and it is so us!! Thank you so much for sharing this!! Just one quick question… i am editing it now and I am changing the color scheme and I am having a hard time changing the parenthesis… i tried to delete the little ones to try to edit it that way but I can’t even delete it. Any ideas? Thanks again!! : )

Reply

themcbaileys February 18, 2014 at 9:42 am

I’m so glad you guys like it and are going to use it! Yaaay! Hmmm, might depend on which version of Word you are using (this was created in Word 2003), but you should be able to just click on them and then change the font color. If not, then maybe try deleting and adding into the program in the color you’d prefer. Hope that helps!!

Susan May 14, 2014 at 8:44 pm

Hi Megan!!

Sorry for the delayed response! I figured it out I am using a Mac and also using Microsoft Word, I had to change something with the grouping… not even sure what that means. LOL. Our Wedding was April 26 and the programs turned out amazing!! Thank you so much again!!

Your template is fantastic but I’ve got a couple of questions.. who escorted the mums to their seats? Did your groom walk down the aisle too? Thanks

Hey Jess – My BIL walked my mother down the aisle and the groom walked his mother down the aisle. Hope that helps! :)

Hugs,

I’ve tried printing these, but it is printing out slanted on the cardstock…please help!!!

themcbaileys October 29, 2013 at 11:42 am

Hey Elaina – I’m not sure, they are definitely stick straight. Could it be that the paper is grabbing from the printer at a slant? Be sure to push the cardstock flush to the printer tray. Sometimes the printer can grab the paper and shift it a bit. You may have to manually feed it a few times to see what’s going on. Best of luck!!

Hi there,
I just wanted to say thank you thank you for sharing your program template, however, I cannot use the link? I have no idea why it is not working for me. Would it be too much trouble to email it to me? I don’t want to impose or anything, but I love the template!

Thank you again,
Elizabeth

HI THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for posting this. I got everything switched and looking perfect, then when it came to print, I am clueless. The whole point to doing this is to save money, we went to fed ex to get them printed. would cost $120 for how many I need so Im trying to print on my parents computer. Fed ex did two fronts on one page, then did the same for the back. How in the world did you print yours?? I am in need of serious help. My wedding is in 7 days!

Reply

themcbaileys August 4, 2013 at 5:29 pm

I just sent ya an email – I actually printed the front first, then the back. So I would do them in batches of 30. Let me know if that helps!!

Hugs,
Megan

Thank you so much for sharing the template! I am not getting married until May 2014 but saw this on Pinterest, downloaded the template, and made all the edits this morning! I am going to turn it into a fan for my beach wedding. Love it!

Quick question: I love that you used Marry Me as your processional song. Do you mind sharing what other songs you used for the rest of the processional?

Callie June 22, 2013 at 4:55 pm

I cannot for the life of me change ANYTHING on these, and my fiance and I are in LOVE with them! I download it to word, and I can’t edit anything. Am I doing something wrong? Having one of those moments!

PS- AWESOME work!

Reply

themcbaileys July 11, 2013 at 11:17 am

Hey Callie – Not sure why not, there are in Word so you should be able to change anything and everything (they aren’t locked down). Let me know if you figure out what’s going on. Maybe download them again?!?!?

Hugs,
Megan

Hi! I love this program and would like to use it. However, I would like to make the parentheses to be a different color other than orange and can’t figure out how to change them? Help please! Thanks!

Katie Fox June 7, 2013 at 9:33 am

I didn’t read closely before. I just saw what size cardstock you used. Sorry :( How many programs did you print (since you said you used only one cartridge). I want to make sure I have enough at once.

Thanks again! This is amazing! :)

Reply

themcbaileys June 19, 2013 at 9:50 pm

No Worries!! I was just fine with one ink cartridge and I printed 115. :)

Katie Fox June 7, 2013 at 9:30 am

I found these on pinterest and am in love. I thought about ordering programs from somewhere, but didn’t want to spend a fortune or they didn’t have enough room for all things I wanted to include like you did. This is BRILLIANT. I do have one question – what size cardstock did you use? Do I need to change anything on the printer settings or size? Thank you so much for allowing us to use this template for free!

Jennifer June 4, 2013 at 11:52 pm

Brianna April 28, 2013 at 1:06 pm

Thank you so much for sharing this! I found this perusing on Pinterest. We actually just bought some DIY programs, but they pale in comparison to these, so I’m returning them to Michael’s to buy some card stock so we can use this instead!
A couple of questions:
1. I’m having both of my parents escort me down the aisle (my parents are divorced, and I was raised mostly by my mom, but I’ve always been very close with my dad). Do you have any suggestions on what to put in the box that says bride’s mother being escorted to her seat?

2. I’ve never used card stock in the printer before. (My wedding is my first “being crafty” sort of inspiration. Eek!) Do I need to change printer settings before I begin?

Reply

themcbaileys April 28, 2013 at 7:31 pm

Hey Brianna –

I’m so glad you like them and you are using them! I think you should just take those lines out and expand on the line which speaks about you being escorted down the aisle. I think that will work out just fine. :)

You definitely don’t need to change your printer settings. However, cardstock does use a little more ink that regular paper, so be prepared with some extra colored ink on hand. I promise it’s super easy!

Let me know if you have any more questions and I would love to see pics!! :)

Hugs & Good luck!
Megan

Hey! I am totally using these for our wedding programs! Thanks! They are freaking awesome! Just a question though! I am trying to change the color of the dividers (the thin lines) in the ceremony part and I can’t seem to select them to change them….Any tips???

Reply

themcbaileys April 17, 2013 at 9:16 am

Thanks Sara, I’m so glad you like them!! :) I think they are pretty awesome too. :) Hmmm, I don’t know. I made them using the drawing tool in Word (the line tool) so they should just change once you select them. Bizarre!!

Reply

Julia June 13, 2013 at 9:01 pm

If you didn’t get them a different color yet – once they are selected by putting your courser over the line and the 4 point thing comes up and you click, then right click and the last option in the box says format auto shape and you change the color there. At least that’s how I did it.

Reply

Amanda April 16, 2013 at 9:02 am

I absolutely love this! The only thing is my fiance’s father isn’t mentioned.. anyway we can make him a part of this program since all the other parents are mentioned?

I was actually thinking too, when does the grooms father come down the aisle, or doesn’t he?

Reply

themcbaileys April 16, 2013 at 9:50 am

Hey Amanda –

So glad you like thme!! My FIL was actually the best man, so that’s how he was included. But I was thinking, maybe where I talk about my MIL being escorted down the aisle, you could mention your handsome FIL escorting her. Would that work?

Megan
