You can see my tutorial for making my invitations here.
DIY Ceremony Programs
What you need for one program:
1 piece of cardstock
1 piece nice computer paper, printed double sided with program information, with 1/2″ cut off each side.
approximately 1 1/2 – 2 ft. of ribbon
1. Fold cardstock in half. (I used a straight edge and the back side of a butter knife to create a crease so it folded nicely.) Stamp whatever you want on the front – I used a penguin.
2. Fold program paper in half.
3. Centre program paper on cardstock and hole punch approximately 1″ from the edge in the crease of both papers.
4. Pull ribbon through the middle and tie a bow on the outside. (What I found worked best was to sit on the floor holding the program between your knees and then tying the ribbon.)
This is what I wrote on the program itself incase you are interested:
“The Marriage Ceremony

Be Thous my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, They presence my light
