There are a lot of DIY brides out there that want to make everything for their own wedding. This is a great way to add a personal touch to the entire event, but it can also be a lot more time consuming than you would expect.

Programs
Wedding programs are an excellent way to let all of your guests know who's who in your ceremony, plus give them a head's up about the order of activities for the day. For outdoor ceremonies, it's fun to put your program on a fan that guests can use to cool off on a hot day.
