I ended up printed all of the text on plain old white paper with black text, then I bought card stock paper in green and purple for the outside cover.
We closed them up with twine string and tied on a little tag with the information that is typically printed on the front of the program.
Here is what I all included in the "guts" of the program:
- Details for the day, including a schedule and a map to the reception site
- Ceremony participants, parents, grandparents and the ceremony order
- Brief bios on the wedding party members
- Trivia about Blake and I
- The story of how we met
- Thank you message
