Whoops! I got all wrapped sharing with you details about Becca & Dustin's wedding venue, ceremony and reception that I forgot to show you their wedding program and favors!
I had a ball designing their wedding invitations (you can view them here) and offered to help them out with the program and favors as well.
THE PROGRAM ::
Pinterest is the best thing since sliced bread, isn't it? Some of the text you see in the program above was inspired by "wedding program" ideas I found on Pinterest. I loved the idea of using the program as a fan. If you think about it, don't guests use them as fans anyways? I mean how many times have you seen someone use a program or bulletin at any event as a personal cooling device? The program was designed in Photoshop in an 8.5x11 document. I then printed it on 8.5x11 double-sided matte paper. I folded the paper in half, placed a large popsicle stick in between and sealed it with double-sided tape. Super cute, right?
FAVOR ONE ::
I think the one thing Becca did enjoy about wedding planning was figuring out what to have as a wedding favor. Both she and Dustin thought can koozies and shot glasses would be fun for their friends and family to take home with them. She did an internet search on designs and saw something she liked on Etsy. When I traveled to Virginia back in August she asked if I was able to replicate the design and upload it to the site where they were ordering the koozies and shot glasses from. Of course I could, and I did! They came out GREAT and all the guests loved them!
FAVOR TWO ::
Now since there were a handful of children at the wedding/reception, they couldn't send them home with a shot glass! So we came up with the little favor you see above for the kids! The glass jars were purchased at Michael's and Becca ordered M&Ms in their wedding colors. I made the little label for the front. We love the way they turned out and the kids were happy to have something to take home!
