30 Before April 30 Project 16 Completed!

Friday, April 8, 2011

There comes a time in the planning of a wedding that a bride has to wave a little white flag and accept defeat. In our case, it was the ceremony program. Now, don't get me wrong, there are so many creative ideas swimming around in my head and I've actually encouraged my own friends to use some of those ideas. But in our situation, the large guest list and the other important tasks led us to the decision that a very simple program would be used at our ceremony.

With my Photoshop skills, I dissected our wedding invitation and designed a 4.25" x 11" program that carries all of the relevant information - front and back. I spent a few months working on this program, piece by piece, and I'm proud of how it turned out. Everything was sent to the printer this week and this task is completed. Can I get a woop-woop!?
