DIY: Our wedding missalette

Yesterday, I started doing the layout for our missalette since h2b and I are going to Don Bosco tomorrow morning to check if the revised wordings would be approved. Doing the layout is not an easy task and it surely needs a lot of patience. I didn’t know that printing papers back to back can be very tricky, most especially that you need to figure out which page comes first. You're lucky if you have a supplier who's going to do the layout for you, but at times like this (now that we're crunching our budget for the wedding. hehe) I'd rather spend hours bugging myself than to pay 70.00 per set of missalette. Knowing that after the ceremony, guests wouldn’t even keep this “script” after the wedding. Little did I know that doing the layout shouldn’t be arranged in order, but rather, how the pages would turn out once you open and flip every pages of the missalette. 

So, after this super dreary task, I am happy and satisfied with the results! Once our church approves our missalette (readings, sayings and the like), I’d immediately reproduce these copies inexpensively. Once approved, all I have to do is to instruct the Xerox Company to photocopy the respective pages back to back and provide them the ordering of the pages. We are only going to spend 15 pesos per set of missalette and that's a great way to save on our printing costs. I can even produce many missalettes or even provide 1 copy per guests if I want to. hehe (which I wouldn't do anyway since I am only planning to print 30 of these)

 One of my wedding coordinators told me that I can just provide her the materials and she’d print these for free; but I am quite shy to do this, since printing this for free would mean restrictions. I couldn’t demand the missalette to be printed at an earlier time; most especially that she’s doing this for me as a favor. I wanted to finish things way ahead of time, and I don’t want to pressure her just because of this missalette. Besides, she has done a lot of things and favors for Mark and I already. =) I just couldn’t thank her enough for being so nice and being so considerate every time I ask her numerous questions about some of our wedding suppliers.  

For those who are still not aware what missalette is, this is the wedding program or rather what I consider the script that the priest, couple, commentator and the guests would read during the wedding ceremony. This may be arranged as a booklet or can even be produced as a leaflet. =) So if you’re still clueless if this is a must for a wedding ceremony, the answer would be a BIG YES! Without this, the readers, couple, guests, and even the priest wouldn't know when it’s their turn to speak already. (Unless they really do pay attention the entire wedding ceremony) So as early as now, it’s much better to prepare and do the lay out way ahead of time. Doing this task is way too tiresome.  (Take it from a bride to be DIY princess wanna-be) ☻

Here are some sample pictures I've grabbed online. Credits also posted below. ♥ I'll share ours once our church approves it ♥

  1. Hi Kat! :)

    May I ask how did you layout the missalette in MS word? I'm having award time tlga. :( My wedding is on the 19th of Feb na and I asked my coordinator if she can print it for me and she said YES but for a PAY. 65 pesos per booklet and minimum of 50 pages. Just like you, I'm only planning to print 30pcs. Would appreciate your response.

    Thanks,
    Charm

  2. Charm, whats your email addy? i can send you the soft copy of my misalette. 65Pesos per booklet is quite expensive :( i only spent 200 pesos for my missalette. but please take note that i use any card board (what ever you call it) my misalette is just the typical misalette you would see inside the churches, some sort of a booklet lang (back to back )

    in my case, i had the 1st copy printed from a local computer shop and for the rest, i had it photocopied nalang. :) .60cents per page lang sa copytrade. please email me at bloggingb2b@e-mail.ph so i can send you my soft copy.
