Mini Newspaper Program | Features

I thought I would do a post to highlight a few Newspaper Programs that I have recently created for couples so that I could share some of their unique ideas for the various sections in their programs and to show prospective couples just how unique they can make their own papers and that they can be made to fit in with any wedding theme.

Chris and Tonya |
This super fun couple was getting married in the Bride's hometown: Tennessee! They had a whole weekend of events planned for their guests and asked if I couple create a 'coupon' of sorts that would inform their guests that they would have free admission to BB Kings for the weekend of the wedding. I created the couple to make it look like a 'cut-out' in the newspaper and also did a section with all of the information needed for a River Boat Cruise on the Memphis River that they had also planned for their guests. All I can say is I wish I was a guest for their wedding day!

They also included a fun 'Marriage Advice Column' that features various words of wisdom from their friends and family. It creates a super funny, personal and entertaining section in the newspaper.

This couple has two loves... The Green Bay Packers and their Cats... Oh Yeah and each other of course! These passions show through their newspaper program with a featured 'Pet' section as well as a sports advertisement that I created for the Green Bay Packers vs. the Colts in the Super Bowl (Let's just say they were pretty confident that their beloved team would make it to the Super Bowl and wanted their guests to know it - Go Green Bay!). Sections like these are always a great way to show off your personality, hobbies, likes and interest and give your paper a personalized flare.

Nat and Crystal |

This soccer loving couple got married at the Wells Fargo Center in Salt Lake City. They did a unique 'Special Thanks' section to the 'Sponsors' of their wedding. This section included some funny sponsors such as 'Budweiser' and also included some more serious recognition including the charity 'Teammates for Kids' which is a charity that the couple is involved with and that they donated to in honor of their wedding guests.

I have also had couples create a 'Vendor List' section in their newspaper listing all of the people that made their day happen (Ex. Dress by..., Hair By..., Photography By..., Decorations by.. etc.) A great way to recognize your vendors of choice and to inform guests of your sources if they are planning a wedding/event themselves.

Melissa and Kevin|
Melissa and Kevin came up with an entertaining title for their newspaper program: "The Ball and Chain Gazette". Their personality continued to shine throughout their program including a detailed proposal story to share with guests, lyrics to a favorite Bob Dylan song that was included in their ceremony AND a cute section for their beloved cats. They were also able to feature their beautiful vintage style engagement photos throughout the paper which were sure to add to the theme and decor of their wedding day.

Elias and Amelia |
This Canadian couple was heating things up with a destination wedding in Miami! Being a destination wedding they wanted to include a 'Fun Facts' section that would give guests some noteworthy info about Miami. They couple also wanted to include a business advertisement section for their Toronto based business 'Hula Girl Espresso Boutique' to highlight their passion for what they do in their program. This couple also included several childhood photos which added a whimsical and nostalgic feature to their paper.

Amber and William |
Amber and William were engaged while on a hot air balloon ride and so they decided to share their engagement story in their newspaper program along with a photo of their balloon before it took off! They were also able to include details about their reception such as their fun photo booth and Karaoke event that they had planned for guests, by having these details in the program they were able to ensure that their guests wouldn't miss out on all of the fun activities they had planned for the celebration!

I have also had a few couples who include the address of the reception venue or even directions to the venue right in the newspaper, making it easy for guests (who may have forgotten their invitation back home) to find where the party's at!

*As you can see, from the examples above, Mini Newspaper Programs are completely customizable to fit any wedding theme and to highlight your hobbies, interests, passions, careers as well as your wedding theme and location and they are also a great way to give guests important information that they will need to make your wedding day/weekend run as smoothly as possible.

I finally put together a collage of our own engagement photos. I am always making them for other couples but never us. I am thinking about getting it custom framed (when frame go half price at Michales) and then doing the same square format of our wedding photos. They will be nice custom pieces for on the wall at home and I like that you can show multiple photos at once (instead of choosing just one!)

My friend Jenn took this photo for us and I thought it would be great to make it into a poster! Great for an online 'Save the Date' or can be used for a 'Jack and Jill' invitation/Poster!
