What to Include in Your Wedding Programs

 You know what to write on your save the date cards, and the invitation is a no-brainer for you. But when it comes to your wedding programs, are you at a loss? The wedding program is a helpful addition to any wedding’s stationery, but can often cause confusion for brides. Here are a few things to include in your wedding programs.

Order of Ceremony/Order of Service

This lets your guest know what will happen during your ceremony. This includes any readings, songs, or special ceremonies you might want to include. This is also a good place to include the name of the officiant.

Wedding Party Names

For larger weddings, in particular, having the wedding party identified in the program can be a nice addition. This gives all those who have helped an extra bit of recognition on the big day.

Reception Details

In a larger program, you can also include details about the reception. If you have set times for the meal, cake cutting, speeches, and first dance, you can tell your guests when they can expect these special moments.

Other Information

Your program can also include special information and messages for your guests. This can be the story of how you met, information about nearby places to visit, or even an invitation to a day-after brunch.

The key to any great wedding program is to choose a design that fits with the rest of your wedding stationery. Working with an expert wedding stationery designer can ensure that everything comes out perfectly. To find out what I can do for your wedding programs, send me an email today!
