One of my DIY projects for the wedding was supposed to be our wedding programs. Notice how I said supposed to be… we’ll see what ends up happening.
Basically we wanted to save a little money by finding (from Etsy or somewhere else online) a wedding program template so we could just print out the programs ourselves. Super easy and a genius ideas, right? Wellllll, it’s proving to be a little bit harder than I had anticipated. Read on to see why.
Here’s my initial inspiration for our programs (found on Pinterest, of course).

Aren’t they adorable? I honestly wanted (still want) to make something that looks very similar to these so I searched high and low for this exact program template (just the paper piece of it as I realize I would need to add the burlap and tags myself), but I can’t find it anywhere and the original blog post doesn’t mention where they’re from. If you happen to be reading and know where I can get something similar to this, definitely let me know. These are still at the top of my list.
Since I can’t seem to find them anywhere, I’ve been looking on Pinterest, Etsy and other sites for printable wedding program templates. Our wedding theme is rustic chic, so I want something pretty simple — one pager with a little bunting banner or even a few coral flowers. Here’s what I’ve found so far:

This one is definitely my second favorite but in the post it says that the programs are hand-drawn so I don’t think I’ll be able to find a template for it. And sadly, I don’t have the artistic ability to draw it myself.
These ones are really cute and go with our wedding colors (coral and aqua) but it’s not a printable template. I’d just have to order them from Smitten on Paper.
I found this one on Etsy and I really like it but it’s $45.00 just for the template. If I can find a printer that will print white ink, it might make since for me to just bite the bullet and buy it?!?
I like how simple this one is but I’d love for it to have a little bunting banner at the top instead of the border that it has.
Needless to say, I am still on my search. Who knew finding the perfect wedding programs was going to take so much time? I honestly thought it was going to be so easy. Although, maybe I’m being too picky and I just need to settle on something.
What do you all think?
- If you’re married, was there any part of wedding planning that you thought was going to be super easy that turned out to be more difficult?
- Did you make your own programs? If you’re a designer type, is there any easy way I can make my own template? Any suggestions for me.
