Nebraska Wedding Programs

Find out how to design a memorable Nebraska wedding program.

When you are ready to get your Nebraska wedding programs ready for your ceremony, there are going to be quite a few options available to you. There are numerous companies throughout the state that provide wedding programs, but in smaller towns it may be more difficult to find someone. However, the best strategy in this instance is to go to the city or village newspaper office. They typically will handle printing and typesetting and they should be able to assist you with your Nebraska wedding programs.

Once you have found the right printer, you will need to decide on how you want your Nebraska wedding programs to look. Let's start with a few basic considerations.

The Paper

A heavy bond paper will work best for your Nebraska wedding programs and will provide your guests with keepsakes of the event that will last for many years to come. Typically, most brides will go with a linen-based paper in shades of pastels, but there are many different options when it comes to color and the overall feel of the paper. You can use your wedding theme colors as a starting point for how you would like your program to appear.

Selecting the Artwork

Once you have picked the kind of paper you will be using, you will need to find wedding clipart for your Nebraska wedding program. If your printer provides this service, they should be able to assist you in picking the images that will look best. Ask to see sample of the clipart you like on paper so that you will have a better idea of how the finished product will turn out. There are thousands of different wedding related clipart images available on the Internet or you can use images that match your wedding theme.

Selecting the Typeface

The typeface is the font that will be used on your Nebraska wedding programs. Once again, you're dealing with thousands of different options, but a good printer will make it easy to find the font that you like. Most brides will go with a formal script, while others prefer a more casual approach. Getting samples of different typefaces will make your final decision much easier.

Putting it all Together

Now that you have all of the elements in place for your Nebraska wedding programs, you will need to collect the names of everyone that will be appearing in your wedding. It is a good idea to make sure that you have the correct spelling for everyone to ensure that there are no hurt feelings. This information can be given to your printer once it is all collected.

After they have the information for your Nebraska wedding program, make sure that the printing company provides you with what is called a "proof" copy before they actually start printing the programs. This will allow you time to make any necessary changes and will give you the opportunity to make sure that you are happy with the finished product.
