What Brides and Grooms Are Saying...
My husband and I just got married 2 weeks ago and made a newspaper to use for our Wedding Programs. Literally EVERYONE was saying how cool it was and how unique!!! We had this awesome newspaper for everyone to read while waiting before the ceremony :) I'm so happy everyone liked them because of all the time I took to write it. But your design tool online was very easy to use. I liked the templates that helped me with a starting point for each page. We now have a very special 8 page newspaper keepsake including stories of how we met, the proposal, and even a page about our puppy! :) My grandma said she read it every night the week after the wedding! Needless to say, it was a very cool idea and more brides should consider doing it. It is something me and my husband will cherish forever and can read it years down the road to reminisce. It's not everyday you have a whole newspaper dedicated to yourself :)

We loved the paper/wedding program and so did all the guests. My daughter was so thrilled when they came and they were on actual newspaper print!
She was married in Breckenridge, CO, and her ushers wore a news boy cap, so the paper wedding program was PERFECT.

The newspaper programs were a huge hit at our wedding! I was so happy with how they turned out and I would recommend them to anyone getting married. I loved the idea of a newspaper program because it gave guests something to do while they were waiting for the ceremony to start. I've been to numerous weddings where I was hot or bored and I wanted my guests to be entertained the entire time, even before the ceremony began. I also loved the newspaper program because it allowed me to provide tons of information to my guests that I otherwise would not have been able to. For example, we provided information about the wedding planning process, venue history, wedding party attendants, schedule of events throughout the ceremony as well as the reception. It was great to keep guests informed about the entire night. The newspaper also made for some unique, fun wedding party pictures as well as a wonderful keepsake that we still have sitting out in our living room. This was one of the most affordable wedding programs I found and the quick turn around time helped minimize stress in the final month of planning. I loved the ease of use the website and I found the entire process very enjoyable.

We recently got married and used makemynewspaper.com to create our programs. They were AWESOME! A HUGE hit! Everyone was talking about them and took them home as a keepsake. There wasn't one left behind at the church. The customer service was fantastic as well. I wouldn't go anywhere else for a newspaper. I would recommend this website to anyone looking for this effect for the wedding. LOVE LOVE LOVED IT! Thank you for all your help.

Our wedding was wonderful and the newspapers were one of my favorite things about it! I am attaching another photo of guests enjoying the newspapers. Keep in mind that the goal should be to entertain the guests. Most ceremony programs don't have anything useful or interesting to read, so use this as an opportunity to give your guests something they'll actually enjoy looking through when they have downtime during the wedding.

We used makemynewspaper to make our wedding programs almost 4 years ago. They were a hit! So we decided to use the same method to announce the exciting news that we are expanding our family!

Everyone absolutely loved the paper. Loved that it was printed on actual newsprint and other than a few typos it was a perfect addition for our guests to enjoy as part of the pre-wedding festivities. The templates were really easy to use and made this creation great too.

The wedding newspaper was an incredible addition to our wedding. The hard work that went into the newspaper definitely paid off. The guests enjoyed reading the articles and completing the crossword puzzle. I was asked time and time again if we hired the someone to create the newspaper and how we got real newsprint. The memories of my guests shedding a tear when reading the loving memory section, smiling when they saw their name in the paper or the lecture from an uncle who, through reading the paper, found out I never visited him when I went to Chicago are priceless. Thank you for making my dream of having a newspaper and a lasting memory come true.

We were very pleased with the final newspaper that we had at our wedding. It was a hit with all our wedding guests and they loved it. My husband is a sports editor for a local newspaper so we wanted to have some link to this on the day. We used the newspaper as an order of service and information about the day, along with a story on how we met, history of the castle we got married in, a meet the wedding party section with photos of everyone, a quiz about us, and the back page was on sport that was taking place that day. The guys at the wedding loved the sport back page. It was worth all of the effort as it was such a unique thing to have and I don't think anyone has ever had a newspaper before. It was also a great price to print for all of our guests and the quality of the print was brilliant.

With plenty of room to write a personal letter, articles, add notes from family and friends, and add plenty of pictures, this is one anniversary gift that will be cherished for years to come.
Here are some suggestions of what you can put in your newspaper:
- Your Story - A newspaper has lots of room, so tell your story. Tell about how you met, the engagement, or the journey together so far. Friends and family who may not know your story well would love to read about it, and for many, the newspaper will be a keepsake.
- Plenty of Pictures - With so much room, we suggest adding plenty of pictures. Many couples will place childhood pictures side by side and then progress through the years until the engagement. Pictures are worth a thousand words, so lots of pictures tells a lot about your story.
- Friends and Family - You can ask people to write something for your newspaper...advice, memories, quotes, stories, or anything that applies. It is a great way to get others involved and ensure that your newspaper has even more value to you and to others.
- Who, When, Where, What, and Why - For weddings, make sure you put all the details about your upcoming nuptials, from the order of service to select honeymoon details. For an anniversary newspaper, include information about important events shared together, your growth together, and more.
- Entertainment - With so much room, you can add customized crossword puzzles to your newspaper, word searches, and comics about weddings, marriage, engagements, and anniversaries. Friends and family will love it, and so will you and your spouse.
- Anything Else - Our newspapers are fully customizable to fit you and yours. Design it the way you like or use our completely adjustable templates to get you started.
