Wedding Programs: Basics of A Wedding Program

...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

By offering a program to your wedding guest, you are providing an order to the event and a lovely keepsake for your friends and family. Programs can be inexpensively printed at your stationer, a quick print shop or form your computer.

Your program should be printed at the last minute to allow for program and other changes to be included in the text. However, have a rough draft typed up a few weeks prior to the wedding to allow for proofing. You will only need to scrutinize the added text rather than the whole program. Make sure to verify a reasonable time schedule with your printer. Also order some extras for keepsakes as well as to mail to people who could not attend.

Make sure to include some or all of the following elements:
* Wedding Date
* Order of Service
* Music Performed
* "Thank You For Attending"
* Names/relationship of Bridal Party
* Other Party Members (guestbook attendant, musicians, etc)
* Place of Ceremony
* If flash pictures are allowed
* Special readings
* Introduction of Family
* Appropriate Poem
* Officiant's Name
* Couple's New Address
* Wedding Missal
* Directions to Reception
* Note to Guests
