Recession Brings Many Benefits for Brides-to-Be for Wedding Programs and Printed Materials

Orinda, California (EastBayDaily) — Before saying her wedding “I Do’s,” today’s recession-era bride needs to learn how to be a savvy shopper to keep costs down when shopping for her wedding programs and accessories. “Getting married during one of the worst recessions in global history has been tough on a lot of brides. That’s why we created the Wedding Program Site where they can download various customizable wedding themed templates for everything from invitations, menus, place cards, thank you cards and so much more,” said owner Carole Galassi.

“The average bride spends between $1,000 and $4,000 on just printed material for her wedding. But, if she’s a savvy shopper, she can download and personally customize our Wedding Program Site Superstore templates and it will only cost her between $50 and $100. That’s quite a substantial savings,” added Galassi.

“We launched this site in January 2012 with a few bridal products and due to the high volume of demand, we’re now drastically expanding the site and announcing 13 new and different layout templates for weddings, which include but are not limited to, rsvp cards, trifles, tenfold, 1-page programs, save the dates, gatefold, single fold, 4-page graduated, 2-page graduated, wedding invitations, menus, place cards, and wedding thank you cards templates, as well as matching fan programs and hard cover guest books,” said Galassi. In addition, the site also offers memory albums, wedding favors, wedding candles, bridal party gifts, seating cards and other accessories.

All of Galassi’s wedding program designs are compatible with Microsoft Word, Microsoft Publisher and Apple iWork Pages. “Our wedding program site is the only resource on the web to offer templates for all three applications,” added Galassi. So anyone can create beautiful and professional looking programs with software that is virtually installed on every home or office computer.

“All of our templates will match and coordinate with each different style. The bride-to-be can put together her entire printed ensemble for a lot less than what it would cost to take it to a printer, or to buy the whole set elsewhere,” said Galassi.

“The Wedding Program Site is unique because our templates contain background images, whereas other online sites only offer the basic pre-printed, blank material forms that need to be printed by a professional printer. At our site, the bride has a choice of using our templates and customizing them herself and then printing it on her home printer, having them printed locally or using our professional printing services,” said Galassi. More choices seems to be the favorite among today's brides!

“The Wedding Program Site offers a cost-saving, cost-effective solution, yet the bride gets a beautiful professional design as if she hired her own graphic designer,” added Galassi.

“My background is in graphic design and template development. After working for over a decade for large secular companies promoting their marketing materials and winning countless awards, I decided I wanted to start my own business. So, in 2008, I launched the Funeral Programs Site and in no time, the demand for our customizable funeral programs skyrocketed.” Galassi said. “Our customers were now asking us to design wedding programs and invitations. So I applied that business model and developed a new wedding program site,” said Galassi.

Today's bride are tech savvy and knows a great time saving idea. Templates are used by almost every industry and it is no different in the ever popular wedding arena. It just makes more sense since there are many details to plan and people are always looking for ways to cut costs. It is no secret that the do-it-yourself method always prevails financially. Wedding planners are not going to want to miss out on the opportunity to save cost and time while producing a truly memorable and magnificent program.
