Taking a Good Idea and Making It Perfect: Semi-DIY Beach Programs

So a few months ago in scouring the web for cheap and chic program ideas for one of my summer brides I came across this super cute and very budget-friendly option from AWESOME Etsy shop My Blue Tulip Design:
$1.00 each!
BUT, although cute, these were a bit too 'formal looking' for my bride who is getting married (ceremony) in Riviera, Maya Mexico next weekend with a color scheme of vibrant orange and turquoise--so I asked the Etsy shop's designer, Martha (who is a dream to work with), if she could take this style and reappropriate it for us--which she did! She altered this more formal design and came up with something a bit more 'casual and free-flowing' for my bride's beach wedding. Martha created the files for us and I just got done putting together and shipping off. 

Next, thanks to the CRAZY color printers we've invested in I was able to do all of her program printing and assembly myself.
All I needed was cover stock, linen paper, a hole punch, raffia and ribbon:
Finished product:

Also put together a few "Reserved" seating signs for her ceremony:
