I just became mayor of your wedding....

I've read on wedding blogs that people seem to have a love/hate relationship with wedding programs. You either love them, and love the idea of guiding your party through your ceremony, or you hate to ruin the surprise/trash the environment by wasting paper/ have a phobia of cardstock/ forgot how to spell your bridal party's names and don't want to get caught....Personally, I felt compelled to give my guests something to fan themselves with so they aren't sweaty beasts in the hot Utah evening- so this program idea was more out of necessity and general hygiene than anything else.

Also, if you're anything like me, I want to know when the party starts and what I'm in for as I take a seat. "Damn this wedding is LONG! Do they have cocktail hour before?...." People may also be stunned and amazed at our brilliant choice of wedding songs, and want to rush home and download them. Or download them during our ceremony while checking their facebook and checking in on foursquare. "I just became the mayor of your wedding! Huzah!". I'm also taking bets to who does this first....

My wedding programs, menu cards, escort cards, and various table signs were all made from the same shop on Etsy.com; and customized to meet my needs. The shop owners name is Sarah, and her shop is called Belletristics. Her shop is located here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/belletristics
I loved how quick she designs, her prices were great, and she's extremely professional. All I had to do was approve prints, then print them myself.

So people, at least you know what you're in for now-
