"preppy modern wedding program"

A friend illustrated these darling programs for Katie, and included her pug, Alfred, of course! I love that nearly every bride is united by the story of a last minute trip to Kinko’s in the days (or the night, in Katie’s case) before the wedding day. Katie had these printed at Kinko’s, and her friends tied each one with a different color of ribbon over mimosas the morning of her wedding.*

*Planner warning: Katie just had 25 programs. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time — hand tying programs can take quite a bit of time. : )

Today I’m dreaming of a modern chinoiserie-inspired party.
