It is also the perfect compliment to vintage or period wedding design concepts, from Classical to Renaissance to Victorian, or to any fairytale themed wedding. This is a wedding program that is bound to remain with the guests for years to come.
While scroll wedding programs can be special ordered like any wedding program, they are easily made on your home computer as well as especially disposed to being handmade. If you have been considering authentic calligraphy for your wedding programs, the scroll program is the right cause. However, exotic fonts are easily found online, and with a handmade paper, the effect might be virtually the same. You can also age your paper yourself by submerging it in a bowl of tea. Crumple the paper before submerging to create dark crinkles, and after reopening it, rub one of the tea bags on it so that it leaves some of the grain.
A creative format like a scroll is all the embellishment your wedding program requires, sparing you the task of finding the perfect graphic. On the other hand, a related graphic may not be out of place. For instance, a Renaissance or castle-related theme might add a line of royal trumpeters across the top. Royal announcements were often introduced with a trumpet fanfare. A Celtic wedding might call for a border of Celtic knot work, and a Victorian wedding might be embellished with an arrangement of flowers and fruit. Such graphics can be easily downloaded from clipart sites such as Weddingclipart.com
The Indian format for scrolls is a bit fancier and may even pass as a wedding favor. The paper of the scroll is attached to two metal rods on the top and bottom which help to hold the scroll open for reading. One of the rods is tied with a silk tassel for holding the scroll closed. The paper is usually a printed silk paper and may even be mounted onto fabric. Indian scrolls are colored and often printed in color with embroidery-like designs. Several specialty companies sell them online for a price worthy of a smaller wedding. You can also create cheaper renditions using wooden sticks and your home printer.
A scroll wedding program is a wonderful and inexpensive way to add that special touch to your wedding design or complete your wedding theme.
