Spring doesn’t have to mean all pink and yellow roses (although it certainly can). Many brides and grooms are now choosing colors that mean something to them and are a reflection of their personalities. Fiesta is a fun and energetic color for those who want to say “come celebrate!” for instance. Softer hues such as lilac grey and rose quartz offer a sentimental meaning and a more traditionally romantic appeal.

Other colors hold symbolic meaning to them that can be incorporated into your big day.
For instance, our Iced Coffee is a soft brown hue. Brown has historically represented tradition and warmth, making it ideal for a “down home” wedding or ceremonies involving family
or religious customs. Peach represents immortality in many cultures, allowing it to represent love’s undying nature.

Invitations using blue colors, such as our Serenity and Snorkel Blue options are perfect for nautical themes, seaside weddings, or destination weddings. Additionally, blue often stands for security and stability, something some couples may want to incorporate into their themes to represent how they feel for one another.

These colors and many more are available now in a wide range of invitations
and all your other wedding stationery. Find them here!

Do You Need to Have a Wedding Program?

The buzz around wedding programs often falls into two camps: those people who believe that wedding programs are indispensable for weddings, and those who think it’s pretty intuitive and unnecessary to include.  You, on the other hand, aren’t in any particular camp – and that’s exactly why you’re still wondering if you need to have a wedding program.

So when it comes down to it, do you actually need to have a wedding program?  Whether you’re having a traditional ceremony or an outdoor affair, consider these pros and cons of having a wedding program:

Pros of the Wedding Program

If you’re having a wedding that incorporates a great deal of cultural or traditional ceremonies that your guests might not understand, a wedding program is absolutely indispensable.  In fact, any traditional Catholic, Jewish, Hindi or religious ceremony that involves a great deal of prayer or cultural rituals should have a wedding program to provide guests information about what they should say, when they should stand, and explain the significance of the prayers and rituals.

Wedding programs can also provide your guests with the information they need to get to a different location.  If your reception is held at a different venue than your ceremony, a wedding program can give your guests the directions they need to arrive right on time.

Don’t forget, wedding programs are an appropriate manner in which to formally recognize your bridal party, including ushers, and everyone else who was helpful in making your big day possible.  Programs are also especially helpful to guests who want to identify and remember the names of parents from both sides, best man, maid-of-honor and the officiant, so that they don’t have to embarrass themselves if they don’t know or can’t remember the names of key people in the bridal party.

Cons of the Wedding Program

The cost of having a wedding program can be high, especially if you have to include a great deal of information about your ceremony and reception.  If you’re already on a budget, you might be tempted to reallocate the money reserved for a wedding program to another part of your big day.

Some couples are also very adamant about having “green” weddings, which is why wedding programs might be a drawback.  Throughout the course of the night, your wedding guests may be tossing around your program or leaving them behind while they tear up the dance floor.  This means your wedding could potentially produce a lot of waste, which might not fit into an environmental-friendly wedding.

So What’s the Bottom Line?

Wedding programs can provide your guests with an invaluable amount of information, including directions to different venue locations and the significance of prayers and cultural traditions.

However, make sure your budget allows for wedding programs, as you don’t want to stretch your money more than you have to. If you’d like to have a program, consider printing black & white programs to save money as B&W printing costs significantly less then color printing.  SaveTheDateForLess offers the ability to opt for a color cover with B&W insides pages so you can have a splash of color without breaking the bank.

It is also possible to have a short program on “green” paper that is FSC-certified. Look out for this logo:

FSC

FSC certified papers ensure sustainable forest management and environmentally responsible forestry. In addition to multiple FSC certified papers, SaveTheDateForLess.com also offers 100% cotton rag fine art paper isn’t made from any wood pulp, instead it uses environmentally-friendly cotton fibers.

Savethedateforless.com can print a program that you already designed, or you can even have us design one for you to match your invitations and wedding theme.
