Wedding programs

A wedding program is a perfect souvenir of your day. In it, you can thank the people who made it possible and also pass across several vital information. While you won’t find an etiquette book declaring a wedding program a must-do, there are certain ceremonial instances where wedding programs are more critical than others. Whatever your reasons, if you’ve decided to have one at yours, here are some of the contents that you should include.

·  The Wedding Program Cover

The cover of your program can be as elaborate or as simple as you want. The essential details on this page are going to be the date and the couple’s names. You could also include features like the place of your ceremony and a picture of you.

·  The Wedding Program Inside Cover

For brides who want to keep their program cover sleek and minimal, it’s best to choose a monogram or a simple initial detail. The space on the inside cover of the program can be available for all your wedding day details. If you chose not to include the date, time, names, and location of the ceremony on the front cover, this information should be visible above the order of events.

·  The Officiant’s Greeting

This doesn’t need to be included in every program, but it is a lovely idea when the officiant has a special connection with the couple.

·  Prayers

Not all prayers need to be included, but if one is particularly meaningful to you, this is a great place to share it.

·  Exchanging of Vows and Ring Ceremony

You can list these in the schedule without any clarifying statements. Some couples choose to print out their vows in their wedding programs, but it’s ultimately up to you. 

·  Pronouncement of Marriage

Whew, finally. Your guests will be excited to know that party time is right around the corner when they get to this point.

·  The Wedding Party Page

When you bring two families together, there will be plenty of guests who don’t know each other. You can add a list of the bridal party and their relations to your program. It is also a way to thank those hand-picked people personally for choosing to be a part of your special day. If you would like to include grandparents or step-parents, this is the place to honor them.
