Free tri-fold wedding program template

When I got married, oh so many years ago now, my husband and I decided to make our own wedding programs to save a little cash. I ordered some nice paper to coordinate with my wedding colors and then started looking at examples of other programs I already had to help design ours. We ended up using the tri-fold program layout, printing on both sides of this watercolor printed paper. Since then, our friends have repeatedly asked me if they could use our template and customize it for their own wedding program. It was much easier for them to start from something that had already been painstakingly thought out than to start with an empty Microsoft Word document. Here’s that template printed on marbled paper.

Marble Program

I would like to share this template with our faithful readers in the hopes that it will help alleviate some of the pre-wedding planning stress and at least make the creation of the wedding programs a little more bearable. All text is easily replaced but having it there gives you the spacing and layout you need.

Also, check out the Booklet-style Wedding Program Template that Chica used for her wedding.

NOTE: Depending on the design of your selected paper, you might need to alter the spacing. Please do a test print on scrap paper before ruining your nice program stock!

    For wedding invitations, buy online. You will find a broader selection with typically cheaper rates than your local printing shop.

    I just wanted to let you know how very much I appreciate this template…I’ve started working with several different ones, none that would allow me to put my whole program on it… yours was designed to and made life easier :-)

    Need a template for a double wedding…like where we can put one couple on each side on inside and the information for where and such in the middle. My bf and I are planning to have a double wedding with his sister and her bf and I want something where we can both feel as if it is special for each of us. I have no family and her boyfriend only has his parents…no siblings so we are going to have a very intimate ceremony. We are planning to rent like 3 cabins and have a huge party in conjunction with our nuptials.

    What a fun idea to have a double wedding, MiChelle! Take a look at our wedding program booklet tutorial. I think you could easily adapt that for your needs. Instead of having a piece of cardstock for the back, make a wider piece that folds down the middle, so that it opens up like a folder and each side has the information for one of the couples!

    Thanks for this, I just downloaded the tri-fold template.
    I’ve bookmarked your site so when I have a spare few minutes (or 17 hours) I can get lost browsing! Haha!

    I am trying to dl your tri fold template and it keeps telling me “chica_and_jo-wedding_program_template.doc” can’t be opened.

    Chica 10/12/2015 at 9:14 am

    Tina, we just tested the link and it works for us. Because this is a .DOC file, you’ll need Microsoft Office/Word to open it, or something that can handle .DOC files. Maybe you don’t have anything like that installed on your computer?
