DIY Confetti Ceremony Programs
In my opinion, ceremony programs serve three purposes: 1) they let our guests know what is happening, 2) they are an memorable keepsake, 3) they give your guests something to stare at when waiting for the ceremony to start. Wedding ceremonies often start 20-30 minutes later than when the invite says. This gives extra time for late comers, for lipstick reapplications, and for more time for you to get even more nervous. So instead of having your coworker who is sitting next to your Uncle Bob trying to make small talk about the weather, give them a kick ass program to read and discuss.
This program project is also an envelope filled with confetti for your guests to shower you with on your walk back down the aisle. It has so many purposes! A good project! A conversation starter! An educational tool! Confetti! It’s the swiss army knife of wedding projects.
Glassine Envelopes (
Different colors of tissue paper
A home printer and a text editing software (like Word or Illustrator)
- Design your program on your computer. Feed the glassine envelopes into your printer just as you would print on a regular envelope or a smaller sheet of paper. Mine goes in the back. Good time to check your manual.
- Fold the tissue paper in half. Cut a 4″ wide strip off one end. Turn that strip and cut 1″ strips off of it’s end.
- Cut 1/2″ confetti pieces off of the end of the 1″ strip. Sound confusing? Refer to the above photos.
- Fill your envelope programs.
- Get showered with confetti!
