Design Your Own Wedding Programs Using Canva

Founded in 2012, Canva provides an online based graphic design application to easily create designs. You can browse through thousands of layouts to find inspiration and create your own specific graphic project.

As for any software, there is a learning curve. However, it’s not comparable to the time you’d spend learning how to use Photoshop or Illustrator.

On the other hand, the tremendous amount of graphic elements and layouts will certainly have you glued to your desk for quite a long period. I know I could spend hours looking at the incredibly beautiful designs on Canva!

To avoid wasting lots of time keep it simple and choose lean visual elements that will make your project look great without being time-consuming.



Design and Paper Format Options

A wedding program that is both aesthetic and practical also depends on the format you’ll be using.

In fact, a wedding program that is straight to the point with not much text can be made smaller and therefore more economical. The best format is the two-sided paddle fan which usually does not allow enough room for lots of texts.

If you are worried about not being able to put all the information due to lack of space, choose a card format or leaflet format.
