So you have chosen a wedding theme and now you wonder how may your stationary look. We collected several wedding program examples arranged by some of the most popular themes to give you a clue what your guest will get in hands.
Remember, these are not only pieces of paper with vital information about the ceremony, they can serve as memorabilia as well.
As you probably already know, a wedding program can come in many sizes and colors.
Some may even create unique booklets with many interesting facts about the attendants, the place of the ceremony, or detailed instructions helping guests to participate, and we discuss pros and cons of different approaches in other articles about wedding ceremony programs, but in this one we'll focus only in presentation of the themes which are in highest demand at the moment.
Rustic Wedding Programs
Everybody can immediately recognize signature colors of vintage or rustic theme, which is known by earthy and washed out, pastel tones. We decided to present two typical programs with additional elements, like lace or burlap.
There is a lot of symbolism behind this theme. It's sentimental and nicely connects old, passing times, which should really never be forgotten, with new times, times which are bride and groom looking at.
Did you notice how many tiny details are included? Uneven coloring of borders and vintage typography are already there, you just have to enter right names and your vintage programs will be ready to print!
Beach Themed Wedding Program
This playful and leisure theme is all about freedom, holidays and relief from often too hectic everyday. Elegant combination of blue and white as most traditional colors is easy on the eyes and it is great for more relaxed weddings.
It is not necessary limited to the beaches, although it is very often at destination weddings in tropical islands. Sometimes even a decorated space with posters, hammock and a sandbox can do the trick and transport us to best places without concerns.
These programs can be part of your stationary or addition to similar theme (preferably in blue and white as dominating colors) and will work great in different creative ways, like with a pair of flip flops as wedding favors or transferred into handy fans (check wedding ideas diy-link for more inspiration).
Don't forget margaritas and a lot of sunscreen!
Art Deco Wedding Programs
Here we are at Art Deco themed programs or, as they are also known, as Roaring Twenties, time around 1920 in USA, when jazz music was at its peak, when industry started large scale production of many household items, and also time of extravaganza, which is so likely portrayed on the immortal novel The Great Gatsby.
If you are fond of dramatic combinations these gold Art Deco programs may be just right for you. It's not hard to imagine a reception party in this style: with foxtrot, large mirrors, shiny lights and maybe even some feathers!
Definitely not for shy couples and impressive experience for guests.
Nautical Wedding Programs
White and navy blue is another theme in demand. It is somehow similar to beach theme, but with much more official, authoritative feel and rigorous etiquette. It is great choice for people who are close to the sea or just like the combination of colors and symbols.
A nautical theme should obviously serve only as a template for your unique wedding program where the main stars are you and your loved ones.
All presented stationary is customizable and can be personalized in just about every possible detail with just few clicks. Even less tech savy brides and grooms can make professional wedding programs with themes of their choices and create lovely memorabilia by he way.
