Heart Fan Ceremony Programs

Eunice and Sabrina Moyle

These wedding program templates are simply adorable, and they're fun to make, too. With the help of your family and friends, you'll be able to put these programs together fast. Just make sure anyone writing on the programs has good penmanship.

222 sheets 8.5" x 11" red card stock

100 wood fan handles

Heart-shaped program template

Laser or inkjet printer, with extra ink cartridges



Double-sided tape gun and extra tape (we recommend the 3M Scotch ATG 700 Transfer TapeDispenser), or glue sticks

1. Download the template here. Customize and print your programs.
2. Print 110 copies onto red card stock using a laser or inkjet printer (10 extra copies are for inevitable mistakes when cutting). Using scissors, cut each program into a heart shape, following the outline on the template and cutting inside the line so the outline doesn't show.
3. Assemble your programs. Place your hearts back-to-back. Try to pair up hearts that match each other as closely as possible, as there will be some inconsistencies due to the hand cutting.
4. Once you're happy with your pairs, take the first 2 hearts and lay them side-by-side, right sides down, on your work surface. Center a fan handle on one of the hearts, left to right, and position it vertically so that the top 6 inches of the handle lay inside the heart, and the bottom 3 inches lay outside of it, forming the handle. Dispense glue or double-sided tape on one side of the top 6 inches of the handle and press into place. Dispense glue or double-sided tape along the heart-shaped areas of the same heart as well as the second side of the handle. Align the second heart, right-side up, over the glued side and press down firmly.
5. Repeat for all programs. Makes 100 programs.

Paddle fans, as these types of fans are known, can be made in any shape—a circle, oval, square, rounded square, egg, leaf or traditional fan shape (resembling a quarter circle). If you have a longer ceremony, you can print on both sides of the fan, adding a bit of decorative flourish along the borders.

Red Poppy Ceremony Program Fans

If you are planning a sophisticated wedding, these elegant programs are a great option. The flower pattern adds beauty to the program, and the bow is an extra special touch your guests will appreciate.

Double-sided tape

Wood fan handles


X-acto knife

Paper trimmer or scissors

Ribbon or spray paint (optional)

Microsoft Word

1. Download the template here and open in Microsoft Word. Add your ceremony and wedding party details. You can change the formatting and fonts, but stay within the trim lines. Print the template on 8.5" x 11" card stock. Sixty-seven pound paper works best as most home printers can handle the weight just fine, and it's heavy enough to give a professional feel to your DIY project. Makes 1 5.25" x 5.25" paddle fan per printout.
2. With the non-blade point of an X-acto knife and a ruler, score the program down the center fold. Scoring makes for a straight fold. Fold the program in half to make a booklet.
3. Using a paper trimmer or scissors, trim the three outer edges of the program—be careful not to cut along the fold line.
4. Adhere double-sided tape to both sides of the fan stick, and the reverse side of program. Tape works better than glue as it won't leave a soggy mark on your paper.
5. Line up the fan stick in the middle of the bottom edge of the program. Fold the program over the fan handle and press for good adhesion.
6. Dress up the fan handles with ribbon (gold finishes the project off nicely). Another idea is to spray paint the handles an accent color. Paint them before taping them to the program so as not to get paint on your paper.

Tip: To speed up the assembly process, create a production line. Recruit friends and family to help with the project, and have one person score and fold, another trim, and another tape and press. Make an afternoon of it and have fun with the creative process.
